We have decided to go ahead and buy a house for us to live in instead of continuing to live in the apartment while we wait for something to happen with our house in Raleigh. We got a smaller, inexpensive house that will work and that we LOVE. Our mortgage on this house with taxes and insurance included will cost us less than rent on the apartment. :) It's at the end of a cul-de-sac, with only one neighbor because there is a creek that goes to the side making it impossible to make the land beside us into a usable lot for another home. The master bedroom is on the second floor, which was a requirement this time around. The dining room and breakfast nook are smaller than we're used to, and we'll have to figure out how to make them work with our tables, but it'll work ok. We just won't be able to use all the leaves in the dining room table. And, the breakfast nook table will probably work if we put one end against the wall, and just won't be able to sit someone at that end. Has four bedrooms. Rachel will get her own room, and Michaela and Alyssa will share. The fourth room will be Brandon's office so he can work from home sometimes and have all the equipment he needs at home all set up. The family room is nice and is a good size. It also is laid out well for placing furniture, unlike our last home in Raleigh. Also downstairs is another small room that will be an area for our pantry overflow since the pantry is kind of small, and also a room to do our school work for homeschooling.
