Home purchase in progress!

Monica and I searched forever. We are in the process of buying a house with six wooded acres and a gorgeous stream running right through the middle of the property.

The house is fairly spacious, but has only two bedrooms (we'll work on that). The original resident was himself a builder, so the construction is superior and has a lot of nice touches: hardwood/tile flooring, vaulted living-room ceiling with skylights, fireplace, kitchen with a Jenn-Air[tm] island, sunroom with hot-tub! and marble floors, a deck and a screened-in porch.

There are only three downsides: the neighborhood is so-so, it has only two bedrooms (affects resale), and the commute will be 45-50 minutes to work everyday. The neighborhood is rapidly growing so if we live there long enough, things should change. We can always add another bedroom in the future. The commute -- we'll learn to live with it and buy fuel-efficient vehicles.

Jester (the dog) is going to love running around in the woods. Well, I suppose I will love running around in the woods as well. Can't wait.
