I thought it would be fun today to share photos of the home that we didn't get, but initially really wanted to buy. It's the exact same model as our current home. We made an offer on this one, but after a lot of back and forth negotiations, it went above what we wanted to spend. In the end, I'm glad we saved ourselves the money. What we fell in love with most was the size and layout of the house, and the size of the backyard, all things that we currently have in the same model around the corner. While I do secretly wish we had their landscaping, deck, and shed, I'm cool with not having the actual house. We probably would have just moved straight in and changed nothing, which wouldn't have been nearly as much fun. It was actually to our benefit that we spent so much time thinking about this house because it made us more aware of our fixer-upper's possibilities and charm.
