house hunting

we went to an open house on My husbands campus! we saw 5 options

our first choice was a 2 bedroom house.
in reaity it was a 4 bedroom house. with a HUGE i'm talking MASSIVE kitchen with more cabinet space then i know what to do with. It has an island with a stove. and a place for a seperate freezer! there is a big livingroom, a finished attic. its short, b had to slouch bad, but it would work really well for me and my projects. can you imagine a floor to yourself?!? for only you and your projects. love it. there was an attached room with a door up there too (guest room anyone?) there is a dining room (china cabinet built in) off the kitchen, down the hallway there is a decent sized bathroom and a huge bedroom. with tons of closet space, down stairs is a bedroom and a walkin closet/extra bedroom. its completley finished. both downstairs and attick have nice plush carpets! OH and it has a fenced yard, with a pation cement slab. GAH! I want it soooooooooooo bad. it was a little retro but i can adapt!

2nd choice is around the corner. 2 decent sized bedrooms, bathroom with a clawfoot tub shower. the bathroom was just redone. there is a decent sized kitchen but no dishwasher and almost no cabinet space. but the basement is huge! and t has an AMAZING VIEW!

3rd choice is a really cute 50's style house with a detached garage. 2 huge bedrooms and a HUGE bathroom... way big! you could fit 2 of my current bathrooms in there!! and the rest of our apartment in their kitchen! the only down side is that they are RIGHT on the street. but its in a college town so its not to bad. 4th choice is an apartment. it has 2 big bedrooms a huge kitchen a seperate dining room, a huge deck, AMAZING VIEW of the river big living room and a decent sized bathroom. my thing is, its old and rusty and dirty! i loed it but its old and everything 'looks' dirty and it would drive me nuts, the ceiling in the dining room is cracked, the cabinets are falling apart. but there are alot of cabinets. its more like a 4 plex. there are 2 staff members in 2 and 1 student in a 1 bedroom on at the top of the building. this might be our #2 choice because we dont' have to pay utilites here... only cable and internet. there is a washer and dryer in the basement that they share with 1 other apartment which wouldn't be bad!

#5 was SO BAD! it was SO SO SO tiny! they upstairs bedroom they converted into a office (dumb) then they put 2 bedrooms down stairs in the unfinishe sement basement! its so scarey down there. you have to walk through the kitchen to get downstairs. it was so bad! the kitchen was sooooooooo small, smaller than our current one and thats bad. you couldn't open the dishwasher and the stove at the same time. so so so bad! lol!
