LOL There are some nice house for good prices, but then there are some shitty houses that are pricey as well. We loved the other place but it needed too much work. This house was built in the 2000s

That is awesome! Never ever find anything like that within an hour drive of me...think of the ginormous matching garage you could build!

i plan on it if we get it! other than gravel drive bothering me, it DOESNT have central heat and air. propane heat and window units for the cooling. Its 1463 sq feet so not bad. HOWEVER, Sara's dad is certified HVAC person and can easily install a unit for us for free (well other than paying for parts).

So the way I see it it has a few things i LOVE:
  • beautiful style logs
  • private, only house on the drive
  • mountian view
  • 3 acres of land
  • appliances stay
  • 3 bedrooms 2 bath
  • nice front porch
  • etc
  • perfect size house for me

the things i dont like:
  • gravel drive
  • no central heat/air
  • no garage (yet)
  • price (needs to come down a little)

So it looks like the pros outweigh the cons

Time for an update ya'll.

Sara and I went and looked at the house today and we love it and intend to buy it

The house is gorgeous inside and out and extremely taken care of. When we walked in, my mouth hit the floor. all the walls and ceilings are clad in tongue and groove natural stained wood paneling. It has 9" ceilings with exposed rafters which is one of my favorite features. The living room has hardwood floors while the bathrooms and kitchen are tile. It has very nice cabinets with two lazy susans in each corner of the counter. the counter tops are tile as well! All appliance stay (wash machine, dryer, fridge, stove, dishwasher, and microwave.

The foundation is clad in natural stone with a matching chimney in the living room of the same stone. The land is freaking amazing with 360* view of the mountains. 90% of the land is useful (flat) while there is one holler across the drive. All the houses around are nice which brings the property value up. The house is the only one on the drive and will probably stay that way.

Overall i am extremely excited and cant wait to get the house. I just hope everything is smooth sailing from here on out like with the loan process and all. We have been preapproved for well over the amount, but i dont know what happens after we come to an agreement on an offer.
