Me and Carrie(3BoyzNaBike) are looking to move into a bigger home. We are looking at a few houses this week and next week. Here is a pic of 2 of them. Just wondering what you guys think of them from the outside since we haven't even seen the inside yet. Tell me what you think. :dthumb:

I am leaning more towards the first one. But thats me.

I like the second one! :lol: It is not even a block away from where we live now and the rooms are huge. (going by the description) Only problem is it on a main road (which I am weary about because of the boys) and not much of a back yard but enough for them to play! I can't wait to go look at them on Friday! Woo Hoo!!!!

I like them both.

I don't know if you're like me in that you watch a lot of movies, etc, but my primary deal with finding my house was a good room for surround sound. Meaning, none of the built in "put your tv right here" shelves in the corner, etc etc. It had to be a rectangle or square room, large enough where I don't have to sit all the way back against the wall, and it had to have a big enough wall for the big screen.

Women don't understand that, but if you're a surround sound guy, put that on your list. Seriously, I can't stress it enough. I know people with great systems, but they sound like shyt b/c the room sucks and there's no good spot for the speakers. :lol:

I know what you mean Pig. I have a nice surround sound system that I have still yet to set up. Not much room to put it nor would it sound right in the condo we live in now. But thanks for the info as well.

I will let everyone know what I think of the homes this weekend. :dthumb:

:lol: You're right because I never even though of that! :lol: The second house has a 25 x 18 living room so I think that would be great to hook up our SS system. Might even be good for that BIG screen we have been wanting. :dthumb:

I bought this house with my ex, and that was the #1 priority for me. If I walked in and saw a built in unit for a tv in some f'd up shaped living room, I'd walk right out. The realtor finally got the picture. :rofl: That's where I spend most of my time at home, so it needs to be right. :bash:

:iagree: Exactly what I was thinking, you can never have too much garage, gotta have room for the toys... :dthumb:

Yeah, I really like the first one and it's garage but you can't go wrong with a nice brick ranch!

That's my opinion also, but the second one is not a "raised" ranch so the maintance to it would be easy. I guess when I start looking for a house my biggest concerns would be if the basement is done, and garage space. Besides all the usually look fors, but i'm sure you have a home inspector for that.
I'm sure you guys are very excited. Good luck and have fun. Hope you find your dream house.

Like you wouldn't beleive. We have been sending sites with alot of pics of homes and looking at alot of them. This is a huge thing and we want to be sure we get what we want to stay in for years to come. But I like to be sure to get a home with a garage and a basement to turn into a game room later. :dthumb:

I hate moving more than anything, so I had to make sure I got it right. :lol: 2 car garage, but I wish to hell I had 3. My cars are door dinged to hell, and it's all my own doing. :lol: :crazy:

Good luck with your house hunting.. My only worthy piece of advice is make sure whoever does the inspection is thorough!

Well use that for the surround sound room then and screw it, the basement is perfect.

Don't worry about that part on the inspection...I have been reading alot on that topic. I will be going with him or her to be sure i am happy. And to check his past out to be sure there are ppl that had issue after he cleared a house. :dthumb: I have been doing my homework on this for a while now.

Yep, I saw the one car garage on the second house and IMMEDIATELY dismissed it. I don't care how big the rooms are, etc. if the place doesn't have at least a two car garage or enough space to add on to the garage.
