The whole house thing is turning into madness. I feel as if, in the past year, we have made a complete circle and ended up right back where we started in this matter. Well, we do have land that we’ll hopefully keep and pay off, but instead of building on it right now, we’re thinking of buying a pre-existing house (or a cheaper new one) and paying off the land over the course of time. Or maybe just saving money. Money, money, money. It’s all about money.
So, we’ve searched GRAR long and hard to see what’s out there. We’ve looked at Holwerda Homes, which we were thinking of building before. We’ve driven all around the Kentwood/Wyoming/Grand Rapids area looking at houses that are for sale. And I’m frustrated! I wish God would just somehow make the decision for us, and tell us what to do. I mean, send us a letter in the mail or just outright talk to me. I’ll listen! I just wish we didn’t have to make this decision ourselves. I think it’s just so much more stressful because our lease is up in a month and a half, so now we have a deadline for making some sort of decision. Yikes!
There are plenty of 2-bedroom houses that we could get, which are nice enough, even new. But, we want to probably have another baby before we’d move from this house, so I would like to have a 3-bedroom house (with all 3 bedrooms on the same floor) to accomodate our whole family. Or should we just rough it and put Grace and New Baby in the same room for a while? Grrr, I don’t know. I wish we could just build the house we love on the land we love, and live in it. But money is always the issue.
Can somebody tell us what to do, please?
