In case you didn't know we are currently in the process of looking for a house to purchase. We have also discovered that we will be expecting a new arrival in December. That changed things on the house front. We went from looking at 4 bedrooms to 5 bedrooms. Big difference in stock and price.
In this new world of nuclear families with 1.2 kids, homes with over 4 bedrooms are very hard to come by and very expensive when you do find one. We are headed out tomorrow to look at a 4 bedroom, 2 bath home. It's 2800 square feet and we are hoping that the rooms are big enough to fit the kids if they double up. This house has a pool in the back yard and sits on 2.2 acres. It's in the country but not so far from work that gas would kill us. We are headed out there today to take a preview look at the area.
I really don't want to buy a four bedroom. We live in one now. Why move? Well, we don't own this one. We are renters at this point and we do want to own our own home. But, like I said, it's so difficult to find a 5 bedroom home in our price range. Perhaps with a four bedroom on it's own land, no "neighborhood fees" etc, we could add on in the future.
I am tired of looking at this point. I have placed it in God's hands and I know He will lead us to the right place if that is His will for us. The looking is tiring though. It is consuming and now I find myself dreaming about all the homes we have looked at.
Prayer warriors, please pray for us that we are able to let this truly be in God's hands and that He will guide us always along the path of His will.
Thanks so much friend!
