I know here in Colorado, NEW housing has not slowed down at all. NEW homes are being built faster than you realize there's a subdivision planned....... We bought this house 2 years ago, It was one of the 2 prime lots in te area with a hugh walkout basement, gigantic pie shapped backyard with walk out basement level huge patio. 2 floors up above, 4 bedroom, loft,3 full bathrooms, Family room that has floor to ceiling windows that open up to look out over the Rock Mountain Range of Estes Park and Loveland, a oopen kitchen with all granite counter tops and stainless utilities and a Formal Living and Dining room as well. ALL on a quiet cul de sac. Well, except for all the rug rats wit all dier toys...... I have 2 'packs' of wild coyotes. Today i had a gorgeous Red tailed Hawk 'perching' on the eave of my back house above the kitchen area.
Grade school is 1 block over........... we bought this as an investment..... It's way too big for just me and 4 Old English Sheepdogs and 1 cat rambling around in. http://www.ambergriscaye.com/forum/images/icons/default/cool.gif
cool Maybe if Norm would comehome more than once every 4 or 5 months and be able to STAY for a while........ (like that's gonna happen w/in the next 5 years at the earliest)........
The neighbors are nice but they don't understand a) dog breeding and showing nor b) why i travel as i do, be it with the dogs to shows around the world, or to come to AC diving.
I did find a house down there I am in LOVE with. I'm going to really talk the hubby up for when he comes home in June.
I really LOVE this house (did i say that?) and also feel taht my bones and joints are much happier there, than with the cold fronts tht come through here.
I wonder if i could just 'swap' my house for the one down there???? I truly do wonder HOW difficult it would be to move down........ with all my major things (like family antiques) and doggies things i cannot do without?
