So, I ditched the county house. It was too much of a hassle, and too weird a situation.
I go to see two houses in Harvest this afternoon, while formulating my final decision. The first was absolutely an amazing house, especially for the price. The floorplan was 100 sq ft smaller than the other, but I didn’t even notice it. The house is laid-out very well. My only beef about it is that the washer/dryer are out in the garage. But, that’s a small price to pay for all of the kewlness that is this house.
It’s in Harvest, which is a town just north of Madison, where I am now. The drive wouldn’t be as long as that I would be making deep in Limestone County. It’s still considered rural. It has a septic tank, just as the other one did. The colors are very neutral and very not pink. New carpeting, laminate wood floors in the great room, hallway, and one of the bedrooms.
The house is pretty much 95% brick, with a little wee bit of wood siding on the back. The distance to Huntsville and the awesomeness of the layout had me in love with the place, despite the fact that I’ll have to endure Alabama summers in the garage while washing clothes. Given the spiffiness of the floorplan, I’m willing to deal 🙂
