Likes and Dislikes

Well we have now been in our new house for 3 weeks and I have developed a list of likes and dislikes. First I will start with the dislikes:

  1. Hardwood floor is very noisy to walk on compared to carpet
  2. Garage not attached to the house but very close
  3. Being able to hear the train go through town (although Trevor loves it, he goes nuts)
  4. Old dishwasher is very noisy (I can eventually fix this)

Now I will move to the likes:

  1. Love the central location (blocks away from Hy-Vee and Wal-Mart)
  2. Love our long driveway--our old house did not have much of a driveway and was right in front of the house, I hated that
  3. Love the mailbox attached to the house (very convenient)
  4. Love 3 bedrooms on the ML
  5. Love the sliding closet doors as opposed to the bi-fold doors
  6. Love the hardwood floors, much more easier to clean and then I suddenly realized how dirty carpet actually gets....YUCK
  7. Love the pantry in our you know how much stuff you can fit into a pantry?
  8. Love that our back door comes into our kitchen. We have never had a back door just a front entry.
  9. Love the small heat and utility bill
  10. Love that the laundry room is downstairs otherwise it gets too noisy
  11. Love having a medicine cabinet....we have never had one of these (very convenient to keep Trevor out of)
  12. Love all the closet space.....our last house being new construction did not any closet space this house has tons! Who would of thought?
  13. Love having a back yard and a front yard.....our last house the back yard was soooo small
  14. Love having bushes so our yard is private and not wide open like our last house
  15. Love having a storage shed
  16. Love having 2 garage doors and not just one

I could keep going on about the positives but I am sure you would all get very bord. As you can see my likes out weight the dislikes by a long shot, we LOVE our new home! I can not wait to decorate with Christmas lights, Jon has already commented on this. Our last house was impossible to put lights on being so high but now it will be no problem.

"sliding closet doors as opposed to the bi-fold doors"

I found this interesting...I was just thinking the other day that I wanted to get rid of our sliding closet doors and replace them with bi-fold.
Out of curiousity...what exactly do you like better about the sliding doors?

I'm so glad that you are so happy with your house! Now, if we can get Jen and Chris set up in their house, all will be well with the world!

Amber in regards to your question and the reason for hating the bi-fold doors.....when you open a bi-fold door to the closet it gets pushed off to the side so you can not reach way back into the side of your closet. Our closet in our old house way deep on the sides and I could never get way in there because the door was always in the way. With a sliding door you just push it to the other side and you can get way back in there and get what you need and nothing is in the way. Next time you come over I will show you.

You don't have very many dislikes - that's great!

Let me know when you're ready to get that new dishwasher...

Amber said...

Oh baby I can not wait to get new appliances!! When we do it we are going to replace all 4 of them. Are you sure it is okay that we get them through you??
