Are you urban, suburban, small town, country?
Hi - this board seems to be languishing a bit so I thought I'd throw some questions out here.
What kind of area is your small house located in? Do you like it? What are the pros/cons?
I live in a small town just outside a city (San Francisco.) It has kind of a hippy feel to it still. There are a wide range of house sizes and styles, from tiny 2 room cottages to 5000sf mansions. I like being able to walk to everything. I like the mix of old and new - just a lot of diversity. The lots are small - at 75x100, our is among the largest in town.
One thing I see in new developments is that all the power/phone lines are underground. I wish we had that here! They are slowly doing this around our area but it'll be probably 20 years before our lines are buried :-(
