I love decorating and looking at houses too! Were about to get started on G's big boy room. That will be my next big project. Don't have any pictures to share yet but I'm doing a nautical theme. I'll have to share pictures once I get started on it.

ETA: here's a pic of some of the fabrics and trim
I'm using

No one wants to see our new apartment right now! Believe me!
I can't wait to have everything in its place so I can get started on decorating! We did get a new couch yesterday though I love it!

We are house hunting!

We are debating between putting an offer on this home:
62 CHISHOLM Dr NORTH, HEDGESVILLE, WV 25427 | MLS# BE7835863

Or building in the same neighborhood...

Wow!! Melissa that house is awesome. Something like that in our area would be for sure double that price.

There is a house a couple doors down from us that I've always liked that is going to be for sale. We actually went for a walk through a couple of days ago - it is beautiful on the outside but the inside needs a tonne of work and the backyard is weird. Once it is posted I will post the link. It was disappointing though - I had always imagined living there, but for the price and the cost and time of reno's it isn't for us

LOL, thanks ladies. They bought the home for over $300,000 in 2006 and put in that $30,000 fence and a whole house water filtration system...now it's a short sale, about to go to foreclosure unless we put the offer on it.

What a steal, Melissa!! Short sales can be wonderful if you are patient and the seller and bank are on the ball. I think Christina bought her house as a short sale, didn't she? and I remember her house was also gorgeous and huge for the price. Looks like a fantastic deal!!!

Is there something you don't like about it, or is it the short sale or asking price that makes you hesitate?

I posted on Facebook but I don't like the size. I want something bigger...and especially the size of the master bathroom BUT I love the yard...but now Trisha has me re-thinking the amount of time we would spend on maintaining the yard. AH! LOL!

OH, gotcha... so this was one of the 2 homes you posted about? Mixed with my house looking efforts, they all run together Yard maintenance is definitely a thought... it's one reason why I love our mountains. Although... DH does have to chop down trees and cut into firewood, I guess that's maintenance

Ours is ALMOST done! I'll post pics when I can figure out how to do it on Forum Runner (haven't checked yet). Right now I'm making paint decisions since we're painting ourselves...they've got the primer on.

I don't think you have enough paint choices, Kara! From those pics, the house looks like it has a similar layout to mine!
