I like that it has a roof LOL...no really...I dont care much for my house....I guess I like the kitchen (if it were finished) since we completely redid it. LOL....
I'd like to change the location of it. If it were out in the country more I could find a lot less wrong with it LOL...I want my kids to go outside and PLAY....

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
I love my kitchen because its nice and big and has plenty of room for everyone. I would chage my backyard and add a fence because then the darn dog could be outside. Just can't afford one right now. I would also change the downstairs bathroom- its so small it reminds me of an airplane lavatory!
I like the house as a whole. It's large and well laid out. We have a large fenced in yard for the kids and the dogs and plenty of parking. I don't like the area we live in AT ALL. It was a nice neighborhood but in the past two years it has gone progressively downhill and the school that I once raved about has completely revamped its curriculum and I'm not really impressed. That said, if we were to stay here I would knock down two walls to open up the ground floor and lay new flooring in the kitchen and in the finished basement. I'd put carpet up in the attic (it's finished too) but that's about it. Then it would be perfect!

I'm going to love my house a whole lot more this weekend...we bought new wood flooring and started ripping up the nasty white-gone-gray carpet last night, woot! I love my house, we worked our butts off the get this house and I'm **** proud of it, I love our huge master and the kitchen is nice and roomy, and of course our pool and slide, and our big backyard which now has grass thanks to our landscaper who laid sod for us!
The only thing I don't like is with 5 kids now and my mom living with us (for now) we only have 4 bedrooms, it's a **** good thing our bedrooms are really big. We are putting 3 boys in one bedroom b/c it's around 20 by 12 so it's big enough, and two girls are going into a 12 by 14 room, still manageable, and my mom has the other bedroom for now, then our master which I love!
I love that all my kids have their own rooms. We are VERY blessed and could never have gotten a house this size if Dh hadn't built it (or most of it and GC'd the rest) himself. Now when this baby gets here someone will have to share-which is a shame because their rooms are small. I said the same thing when kira was born but what ended up happening was we lost our office lol. I cannot stand our laundry, kitchen and eat-in kitchen area. We have far too small an area to feed the troops, the kitchen is not at all functional, there is no window above the sink and the laundry room-off of the kitchen-is great if we were a normal sized family. I swear most days I can't even stand in the box of a room to put clothes in the washer! Toby (dh) wants to add on off of the kitchen and add a dinning room, laundry room and now a bedroom. That unfortunately wont be happening for another 5 years at best.
Our house is great. It's brand new, four bedrooms, and very spacious. I love the open design of the downstairs, the hardwood floors, the walk-in closets, the big bedrooms, and the counter space in the kitchen. My biggest complaint is that it isn't ours...it's military housing and so we will have to leave it behind in just a year, lol. Also the bathroom fixtures (including the bathtubs and toilet) are very cheap - I would definitely replace those if we owned the place. Oh and the kids' bathroom is long and narrow - meaning the door can't open or shut when anyone is standing in front of the sink, and I can't leave a step stool there. There's a big traffic jam every night when they brush teeth.
