On Wednesday I looked at about 10 houses. I kind of liked 1 house, so I might have a bit of direction as to what kind of house I want.
Here are some pictures.
I think I want to build something like this at some point.
This house had a fireplace and built in glass cases, but kitchen floor and all of the electrical would have needed to be replaced.
The tub too. You can’t really tell from the picture, but this is the smallest tub I’ve ever seen.
This was listed as a “full” basement.
Beautiful wraparound porch destroyed by turning part of it into a 3 seasons room.
Not even in the top ten of the scariest stairs I descended on this day.
I might be too impressed by built in cabinets.
This was the kitchen in the house I kind of liked. I actually was surprised how much I like the window over the sink.
I’m not even going to comment.
I kind of liked the kitchen in this house. But there was no electricity upstairs and all 3 bedrooms were upstairs. Actually the kitchen was the only thing to like about this house.
No electricity upstairs, but a brand new 3 car garage???
It was definitely an educational experience.
There was a weird experience where we looked around the house while the current occupants were still there.
Maybe I’ve lived in a cave, but I was shocked by how many houses only had access to the basement from outside. I didn’t even realize that there were still houses like that.
On a small unrelated note, I did gain some insight into the “idiot” sign at the suffrage march.
The term idiot is in the Iowa Constitution.
Article II, Section 5:
No idiot, or insane person, or person convicted of any infamous crime, shall be entitled to the privilege of an elector.
I would write more, but I want it to be a surprise when you get in the voting booth on Tuesday. If you are voting in Iowa.
