House Hunting...

We've been looking for a new place to rent sense January. I thought we would be somewhere by now because there are a zillion houses out there for rent. We've tried several times to get something. Every time the person seems to not want to rent to us (maybe because of the dreads... but one of the guys didn't even meet us). It's kind of annoying and our house is starting to feel like it's closing in on us. My projects are taking over the house and I really have no room to work on anything. Like I said... it's just annoying. We're not looking for anything fancy, or huge... just something that's set up a little better for our needs.
. . . . . . . . . . . . .

We just found he PERFECT house to rent, here in Portola. It has everything that we want....... but it's a lot little more than we can afford.

Just a few reasons I love it...
  • I really feel that it would be a big step in getting our products out there, because we would have the room to make and store them (away from our little, grabby, dirty handed children).
  • It has a large back yard, with a garden and a covered patio, that feels very private and open.
  • WOOD STOVE: an item on our "must have" list (or at least our "want, really, really, want" list).... yep, has it!
  • It also has a kitchen that is open to the dinning and living room with, get this, counters... I know, right? I would kill for counters.
  • and because the floor plan is so open it would be awesome, AWESOME for game nights!
It's a much nicer house than we would ever need, but it's right by friends and would make it much easier to be a one car family. I know the owners, and some one has talked to them for us about the possibility of us renting it, but I have no idea how willing/able they are to come down on the price.

Oh, and did I mention, it's a block from the park?
*sigh* We shall see...
