Up or Down?

Well, we have pushed forward with moving, we are on a runaway train right now! We have found the neighborhood and the lot we want, we are going to build! We are still praying everything works out with our current house and selling it.

When speaking with our realtor and our lender they both said "be prepared for your house to sell in a day". Whoa! That is awesome...except where do we go while our new house is being built??? We are going to meet with them soon to discuss all of this. Until then we are purging anything and everything we don't need in this house! We are cleaning scrubbing this house from top to bottom and fixing up anything that needs to be done.

There is something I am having trouble deciding, our floor plan.

When we first met with the builder the only home he had that met our needs had the master bedroom on the first floor. This was a deal breaker for us. I can't imagine having to tromp up and down the stairs in the middle of the night when the kids need me. I am scared of my shadow...I can't be wandering around the house!

The builder is so incredibly nice, he came up with a floor plan that has the master bedroom upstairs with the kids. I am very happy I can be up there with the kids.

After talking to friends, and the builder, I am now torn. There are so many positives to both floor plans, I don't know which one to go with. I would love to hear your opinions, or what you personally have, and how you feel.

Please send a prayer that selling our house works out so we can move forward with everything.

Here is a sneak peak at the front of the house : )

Well, I've had both, upstairs master and downstairs. I was very scared to have the downstairs master that we have now, but the longer we're in it, the more I love it. I use my room more. :) and when the kids go to bed, that leaves us the whole main floor to clean up or do laundry or whatever without waking them. I did keep baby 2 in our room longer because I didn't want to have to go up and down the stairs, but it has worked out great. I have heard the resale is better for first floor masters too. So, I'm sure whatever you go with is fine, but don't be scared, there are always night lights you can plug in (that's what I do) :) and remember, kids will grow up and you might not want to be right next door as they get older and noisier! Hehe
