In my last post I told you that we are House Whisperers and have bought and sold many homes over the years. Now we are taking a little break.
Kelly asked if being House Whisperers was what we did for a living, or if it was just a hobby. Well, both actually. Mr. Comforts is an engineer and works full time. I work on the houses full time, and he works on them during the weekend.
We are giving ourselves a year to decide if we have one more house in us to buy and sell or if we are ready to settle into our forever home. I will let you in on how we will make our decision as we go along.
We have decided to rent a home for a year. No pressures, no fixing up, no knocking down walls, no painting, no potagers or pergolas to build. Not even any repairs!
The home we are renting is in a mountain community about 15 minutes from our last home.
These pictures are of the outside. The house we just sold was 3600 sq. ft. and this one is about 2000 sq ft. Luckily for us, it has a huge storage basement. I will show you inside pictures in a few days, but today I thought I would show you the outside.
It is a 3 bedroom 1974 ranch home that has been totally remodeled, including the new front deck. We are the first to live in it since the remodel. Above you can see how steep the driveway is. That has taken a little getting used to!
Above is a picture of the road we live on. It ends right there, with only one more house next to ours.
This is the view in the other direction. In another few weeks when the leaves are full, you won't be able to see the neighbors. They are a couple of acres away.
