Lets play a game…
Everyone knows HGTVs House Hunters right? The show where a camera crew follows a prospective buyer as they search for a house. They see three houses and the buyer has to choose between those three houses, all while leaving the viewer to debate and guess which house they will pick. I am not the biggest fan of this show as it is obviously totally fake, but it is still kinda fun to see a bunch of other peoples houses. I will tell you one thing, I will not eliminate a house based on the interior paint colors. (my biggest pet peeve of that show–you would think that people with a budget of 700k would be able to pay someone to paint for them…god forbid they have pick up a paint roller themselves. I do not understand this.)
Here is the St. Paul Haus version and it is totally legit.
I will give you the basics of the house along with our favorite aspects and or biggest concerns. Once I get all the house posted I will give you a quick run down on each house and you all can pick your favorite and take bets on which one we will choose.
Here is what we are looking for:
- 2 story single family home
- 3 or more bedrooms
- Main level bedroom
- 2 bathrooms
- Large yard
- 2 car garage
- Charm and character with natural wood work, molding, hardwood floors, fireplace, etc
- Of course it has to be in St. Paul: preferably close to restaurants, shopping and Adrian’s work.
- And last but not least: It has be within our budget. With the 2 of us paying for master’s degrees it’s a small budget I assure you.
Stay tuned for Haus #1 coming later this week. 🙂
