I dont think building in the winter is really an option right now. I'm currenly under a foot or more of snow. We got spanked yesterday.
I really hate open floor plans. I can't do it. I think they are annoying as hell and do nothing for me. I'm old school. I like rooms with functions and rooms that are separated. living rooms that go into kitchens remind me of those horrid apartments I used to rent.
I love my location, but he doesnt cause of the well. I dont own the house, so there is no equity in this.
I really want an older house, but after freezing yesterday I'm not sure thats the way to go.
