  • Wedding: January 2021

2500 square feet. 2.5 car garage. Massive back yard. Three bedrooms including master with bath and walk in closet. One bedroom is a guest room the other is office/guest room. We have another guest bed in the basement. Three bathrooms including the master. 

Open concept main floor with normal sized kitchen, nice sized living room, a little reading nook, and a separate area that is the laundry room and garage entrance. 

Upstairs is a big bonus room we have turned into a movie theater and the bedrooms. 

It’s great for us because we have guests a lot and like to entertain. With my family being on the other side of the country it’s nice to be able to offer a nice place to stay when they visit. And we have lots of room for friends to sleep when we have parties.

2200 sqft 2-story with a loft and additional “office” type room. 3 bedroom and 2.5 bath. Open layout. One room is used as a gym that my husband never uses. I have plans to ask him to get rid of that someday… One room is a guestroom, and the third bedroom is used as an office.

I like that our home was brand new. We upgraded the floors, countertops & backsplash (kitchen & bathrooms), put in concrete, pavers, and artificial grass on the side yard, as well as a patio covering. I like that we live in a gated community to keep out some of the weirdos nearby.

I dislike the fact that we only have a side yard. My husband’s big dog takes up most of the small side yard. It would be nice if we could have our own private jacuzzi but I won’t bother while we have the dog. It’s also annoying that we don’t have a driveway and can only park in the garage. Downsides of a gated community…

I also hate where we live because it’s FAR from my work. I commute 50miles one way. But my workplace’s city is too expensive and old in terms of housing. I don’t plan to switch workplace due to my pension.

I have dreams of moving someday (10+ years) but it would have to be a house so I can have pets. The idea of a condo and shared walls bothers me.

sassy411 :  What part of California!? I am from the Midwest and loved growing up with a basement. I didn’t realize until I moved out here that hardly anyone has a basement 🙁
