We’ve been looking for a new house for years. We’d like a few acres in the country with a water view. The problem is that it’s usually a choice between having a few acres or living in a small lot with a water view.
We really would like to have both. Since we haven’t found anything that we like (that we can afford) we’re looking at the problem in a new way. We’re thinking about having a house built. Right now it seems like an almost overwhelming task. Having a house built means that we’ll be dealing with putting in sewer and water lines. We’ll have to find a builder and maybe an architect. Will it even be affordable? We don’t know yet but we’re going to check it out.
