Okay, click on the picture above to view some of the other pictures taken of our new house. (Look for the set on the right.) Yes, it's ours- unofficially. Our bid was accepted, and we hope to move in four weeks. (gulp) I'm extremely excited about the odd shaped room that will become my new studio- yippee! I only posted a few pics because the people who live there now have decorated it in such a fabulous manner, that I didn't want you to think we had already moved in. I'll post more once we get settled.
This is what I call a "cookie-cutter" house. It's one of those that looks just like all the others on the street. Usually I abhor such homes. They have no personality, no character, no "je' ne 'se quois". (probably misspelled that-oh well!) However, in the course of looking at those twenty or so houses last week, The Husband and I noticed a couple of things:
1) Fabulous character and personality cost big bucks- we don't like that.
2) If a home manages to have fabulous personality or character and a cheap price tag, there is probably something wrong with it.
So we opted to have a house with no obvious outward personality (we can always add to it, I figure) and instead focus on the great lack of problems inward. I mentioned in my last post all the great amenities that this house has. The lack of headache and great convenience that this house offers outway any sort of home vanity I may have headed to Waco with. Screw being radically different and unique. I embrace my conformity!
On another note, does anyone know how to blog more than one picture at a time, using Flickr?
