We're ok with living away from the city, in fact, we would like a peaceful place as long as it's still able to receive electric/city water...
The reason we want a larger house, My wife and I have been married for a few years and have been living alone. We have 3 small dogs. We are used to having our own things. We also plan on having MANY visitors spread throughout the year...So guest beds are necessary. We plan to start our business out of our home, should permits allow...do not mind traveling a little to the city, etc. We have a large SUV...as mentioned...so i did not want to offend anyone by driving it regularly through the city as we work from house to house, etc..
The two people going with us are much younger, this will be their first out of parent household. we would like enough space for them to grow, us to remain grown and everyone to still get along
I find it rather a smart move!
