      House might be going on the market soon if anyone is interested

      I've been off work for the last week and have been spending way too much time crunching numbers and looking at homes outside London. I could sell my current home, buy a home twice the size on 2-3 acres outside of London, have half the mortgage and a 3-4 car garage. Being I work from home 70-80% of the time now its starting to look like a real possibility.

      Girlfriend wants to keep the current home and buy a weekend cottage outside of London on a acre or so. Once the baby is born we're going to start looking at both cottages and primary homes outside of the city

      Interestingly enough my close family friend owns that company (the Schroeter's). Wolfgang and his wife have an AMAZING place in Toronto with a mind blowing grill. Their lake home is even sillier. Thanks to your purchases I have enjoyed some really nice places to stay

      Nice and broke in now. Although I still have not used the side burner. I love my outdoor kitchen. Sink and bar are to the left. Installed a 40 inch tv out there today actually.

      That parcel right there alone is more than double the size of what is in my original post. Has anybody seen my monocle?

      Do I have the oldest house now?

      We almost bought it, but ended up renting it for about 15-16 months. My then fiance was head over heels in love, but my eyes see trouble where she sees the warts in "warts and all." Cooler heads prevail, we passed on it. A co-worker of hers moonlights in real estate and kinda knows the owner who lives out of town. Due to the market collapse, she owes likely as much or somehow more than the asking price. Not my problem. Said coworker convinces her to rent to us, and given our situation we may change our minds. No problem, house comes off the market and we move in.

      Baby. Wedding. Six months pass and there is now a problem. We love the house (still there for a couple weeks) don't get me wrong, but it needs work. Lots of costly and/or time consuming things really skew the value. Don't even get me started on the driveway and garage. I could have financed the difference but at the end of the day, my front yard still would fit inside the garage. It sounds ritzy but the garage is too small, and there is an ever widening crevasse in the middle due to an unkempt sapling.

      If you had a job where you had to live in an old city a three-story building would work just fine. Almost bought a '60s station to house my business, but the city was too particular what it was used for. It ended up an insurance service center, a pretty effective re-use.

      My wife and I were watching a show on TV for a while where people turned odd things into houses. We got bored of it when every episode had at least one church-turned-house and one firehouse-turned-house. Apparently it's more common than you'd think.

      The old mills or warehouses were generally the neatest ones.
