And the best part is, I can go to garage sales again!

After looking at AT LEAST 57 houses - those are the ones for which we have info sheets- we have finally found one that's just about perfect!

It has:
One big open room, just waiting to have parties
NO formal dining room
An amazing kitchen, which includes:
a garbage drawer
a chopping block section of the counter
a cooktop in the island
a prep sink also in the island
an eating section of the island
oodles and oodles of cabinets (all with roll-out shelves) and countertop!
The dining area currently has a 10 person maple table in it, which was part of our initial offer, but was rejected by the owners. Because it was custom made for five THOUSAND dollars.
3 bedrooms upstairs
Master bedroom closet that may be turned into a bedroom in the future. No joking.
A huge yard.
With room for a swingset, sandbox, AND the waterslide. This is all Leah needed to know.
On a golf course. Aaron is already making plans for buying a golf cart to drive the 8 houses to the clubhouse.
Oh, this house is also 4 doors down from friends of ours, whose daughter is a good pal of Leah's.

We close July 11th, and oh boy! Are we excited!

Way to go! Now pass some of that good house-finding mojo to us! We've already looked at like, 12 houses.

Awesome! Can't wait to visit, of course that wont be for another 7 months.
I hope soon we'll be in the same boat as you. Well, minus the golf course and the water slide. Although that slide sounds really good right now (aka this heat&humidity is KILLING ME!)

that's awesome, Liz! I'm sure it's a relief for you, and also exciting! Sounds like a great space for you and yours. It pays to wait and find just what you want.

I think Aaron the Spouse mentioned 2 of your 15 house features when we chatted at church. Much of our discussion was spent explaining where it is since it is a subdivision I have seen on the phonebook map, but don't recall ever visiting in my 20 years in Fargo. That may change with your next moving party ;-) .
