Anyways, I recieved our tax paper the other day from our mortgage company. Our payoff on this house is now $82K. I am always daydreaming of a bigger and better house. I constantly look at the Sunday houses that are open. Even though our plan fell through to move closer to D's work, we're ok here for now. I figure if we can sink a yearly tax return on this house plus our payments, we could pay it off in 10 years. We both want to build a dream home in the country so we graze the ads for land as we want to buy the land first and pay it off.
Right now we have a small ranch with a total of 2020 sq feet with 4 bedrooms, 1 bath, 2 living areas, 2 car garage and we have a big ol barn and 1.5 acres. This house was meant for a small family and I love it to death but we need something bigger especially if we're planning for 2 more kids.
If you could get the house of your dreams to accomodate your family, what would you add?
My list would be 3 baths, a bigger living room, a mud room, a seperate dining area, an extra car garage for kid toy storage, a big ol playroom, and a laundry shute!
What would be on your list?
