We're in negotiations about a house.
I love the house. There are so many, many things I love about it--the old tudor style with stone and brick.
the nearly acre lot with huge mature trees and creek running along the back.
The library with spiral staircase. I mean, really, a house with that only comes along so often.
The newly remodeled kitchen isn't too shabby either.
So, why did I wake up afraid that maybe I can still get out of it? The list of things that needs to be done to it is long--new roof, AC put in (it has a swamp cooler now), somehow cover up the ugly baseboard radiators, redo some of the older looking bathrooms, a lot of the closets don't even have doors (Oh but the ones that do are antique and amazing ), tile the ugly linoleum laundry room floor, some of the light fixtures are really pretty bad. So, do we do it? Or would it just be a moneypit and a thorn in my side? Or does the good outweigh the bad?
