I actually love the little house we live in. The only thing is, I wish it wasn’t so far from, well, everything.
We are living in a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom cottage with a full kitchen, dining room and family room in Homestead, FL. We have access to 8+ acres of wide open land, a nice pool to play or do laps in, lots of shade, orchids and palms as far as the eye can see, a private yard for Lola and all the puppy friends she could ask for. The cottage is wall to wall tile, has a brand new kitchen (thanks to my wallet, my dad and Home Depot!), a pass through from the kitchen to dining room, and 2 built-in bookshelves in the family room.
Oh, did I mention that it is about 100 years from my parent’s back door? This will be crazy beneficial when the little Fletcher babies make their appearance. Mom and dad’s house has a room all ready for the grandkids. Don’t get me wrong, they didn’t paint it that way, they just didn’t paint over it from the previous owners. Also, all the bedroom furniture my father built for us is in the room ready for the next generation. There is a desk, bureau, and a huge gorgeous bunk bed. Seriously, the bed is my all time favorite piece of furniture and I staked my claim years ago; even though my younger brother was sleeping in it at the time.
I lived in this house when my parents first bought the property before moving to Gainesville in 2004. This time there are 2 of us living here, along with a dog and a cat.
