House Shopping in the Wild West.
House Shopping in the Wild West. After Spending many nights dreaming of a house to put all our family treasures we started the great hunt. Jim and I decided that we did not want to move over the holidays so we had fun over the holidays watching some of the houses we like on the Internet. We even had the ones we wanted. Now we may live in a big state, have little population but house here in Wyoming, they ask for a couple arms a leg and your first born. Even if they have lost of land all around. Jim and I took a look at what we could have bought if we were still in Lubbock Texas and it made me cry. so we wont even go there (6 beds, 4 baths, 4 thousand square feet, brick, 1 large lot, less than a year old, great schools). That's why were are not going there. Here is a few of the fun things we found on our Wild West House hunt. Wonderful Orange counter tops with brownish floor and very "Holy" carpet Wonderful shinny black fire place with golden flying birds, this house even came with a green freezer built right into the wall of the family den in the basement. We also so many large dogs, Large Mormon food-storage rooms (we are in Green River Wyoming), We have concluded that people do not believe in putting carpet on the stairs. The one house with carpet on the stairs also had carpet all the way up the walls by the stairs, wonderful. We have found after swallowing what we could have in Lubbock, we found our diamond in the rough. With any luck we may get a contract on it soon. It has 5 bed rooms kinda if you don't need ceilings, and 2 baths, lots of mirrors on a wall and a large lot plus a metal roof. This is the house over the holidays we thought we would like. So unless a perfect house comes on the market we are hopping to place an offer soon. Take a look at what we hope to call home this spring. The best part is the new kitchen and look again If you would like to see more of this house you can look at http://www.realtor.com/realestate/green+river-wy-82935-1104283055/ So with a lot of prayer and luck we hope to be home owners again by early spring. PS there was only 17 house to that were in our price range and had at least 3 bedrooms ands and 2000 sq feet.
