When Jim first walked in this house 4 weeks ago he fell in love with it. It is not a flashy house but we are not flashy people. We love to play ball and it has space for that without the ball rolling down the street. I loved the the fact that I can fold laundry and put it away later. Plus all the storage for food and my Craft stuff. Jim loves the wood stove. These house both are great houses. It is almost to hard to choose. So leave a comment as to which house you think is the one that will fit the wild Moffat family. We look forward to seeing what you have to say.

They both look like they could be great houses. I like the kitchen and eating area in the first house and the bonus room in the second. Maybe you can play rock, paper, scissors and decide that way. :O)
