In the world of mortgages $15k is only about $75 more per month, but that is $75 I would like to leave open to do other things, and it is over our agreed upon budget. I don't ever want to have to tell Eliza no she can't do something because of our house payment.
So the search continues. I even think God tried to tell me I made the right choice because a house came on the market, in our price range, with everything that we wanted. Unfortunately it is a little too far out for Mark's work, but it is proof the houses do exist.
I will continue to do my weekly update of the rooms of the "new house", just to show you my style and what I hope to do one day.
We are continuing to update the house with the hopes of selling it when we find a house. The painters are making a whole bunch of noise as we speak. I did a few before and during pictures of the bathrooms, I will do a post with the after photos when it is all done!
