property love

his weekend, welfy and I spent a good deal of time doing drive-bys of homes in our price range. Tomorrow we will be travelling about with a realtor to see the inside of a lot of these homes. Most of the houses I have been interested in have lots of space to move about and place furniture. A good example would be that sprawling colonial house that I posted a photo and link to a few days ago. I'm a firm believer that you can never have enough space. Yet today, I fell in love with a property that has only 650 square feet within its walls.

But it's not the house that I'm in love with. It's the lot. It's on the river... with a dock!

And a REALLY cool deck!

Not to mention there's a screened porch attached to the deck... and a huge driveway where I could park the truck when I'm home... and it's minutes from downtown. Then of course, there's the house.

The house is basically three rooms. There a living room/kitchen combination area. I'll hopefully see the inside of this place tomorrow, but near as I can tell, these photos represent a roughly 270 degree panorama of the "great room."

And then there is a teensy bathroom with only a shower stall....

And two bedrooms that are so small that the photographer couldn't even give a feel for the size of them...

But did you see that river?

And... and.. the boat dock?!?!?!

All for the low, low price of $84,500.

Now, I already know that Welf will not be comfortable in that small of a house for very long. She's too much of a packrat and has piles and piles of books and clothes and knick knacks and what-have-you. I'm hardly home and am used to having a bit of a spartan existance. Just getting to enjoy the tranqulity of those surroundings when I'm home would be enough for me. But she's the one who has to live there day-in and day-out. So from a realistic standpoint, we'd be considering an addition to the house in the next couple of years, just to give us some breathing room and storage. It'd only increase the value of the property if/when the time comes to resell it.

Am I crazy for thinking this way?
