Its a split level (half basement, half crawlspace) and its 1600 sq ft. Definitely not out forever home, but really nice for our first home. We are actually debating extending out time here, and adding a second story over the living room and creating a master suite

We’re still in our first home and I think it is around 1800sq ft.  We’re currently in the process of finishing our basement, so that will add some room, too!  It’s a little misleading…our house was built in 1940 and it’s 1 1/2 stories, so the upstairs has those lovely slanted ceilings that force us to walk bent over in some areas.  It isn’t really super usable space to us right now, but we’re planning on eventually adding a master suite to the upstairs and then the house will feel really big.  We bought our house almost 3 years ago.

Our first home is a 625sq foot condo!  It’s tiny and I can’t wait to move, and have a real house with a real yard.. *daydreams..*

Our first home was around 1800 sqft. Btw-Congrats on putting in an offer! It is sooo exciting! Im sure you will love it! Post pics please!

We are now in our 2nd home(we intend it to be our forever home when we have a family) It is over 3000 sqft  with a fantastic yard but it is a home we intend to grow into not out of. Surprisingly though we still fill cozy in it even though there is only 2 of us in it!

Our first home is 1500 sq ft. It’s small but big enough for now! We’ve been here 2 years now & looking to move in about 2 years to something bigger.

Our place is just under 1,500sqft, if I remember correctly. 3 bed/3 bath, and we plan on refinishing the basement to create a man-cave, and office for Fiance at some point. It’s partially finished right now, but the previous owners didn’t take care of it, at all.. or the whole house, for that matter. We’re renovating bit-by-bit.
Congrats on putting in an offer! It’s exciting!

We’re still in our first home, with hope to move in 3 years or so. It’s about 2500sqft with very little backyard space as it’s a townhouse. While it’s great space wise, we’d love to have something larger, and a big yard (considering we have 2 large dogs).

We just purchased our first home and it’s just under 2600 sq ft. We waited a little longer so we could get something that we can see ourselves in when we start/finish having children. There are some things we don’t love-small yard-land is $$$ here, we’d like a basement, and more storage space….but it’s great for now and more than enough room.

Ours was around 1200 SF, no basement! We were exploding at the seams.

Our new forever home is much bigger. 😀
