OK, so it turns out that Dale Earnhardt, Jr.'s "starter" home was a glorified double-wide...woo-hoo, we now have more than just NASCAR in common. I am not a big supporter of the buy-a-home, pull it to a piece of property kinda gal, but when you love someone...you'd just about live in a cardboard box to be with them. This manufactured home is beautiful. It has 5 bedrooms, 3 baths, fireplace, etc...but absolutely no resale value...which is fine with Mr. Chad b/c he will NEVER resale it...LOL. I laugh, but I am not kidding.
My dream is to build my own home. I want to be with it from the time they lay the first block or pour the first concrete footer to the time they put the last outlet cover on...and I want to think that it is not just a dream.
Don't get me wrong. My house growing up was nothing like this...I should have been so lucky.
He and I kind of came to an agreement, though. I will make decisions on the inside (Hello, Silk Purse!) and he will make decisions for the outside (Hello, Home Depot!)...and one day--maybe...I will still get to BUILD my dream home. We won't tell him, but there is no maybe, we're just letting him think that...
This bad boy "manufactured" home will be paid off in 5 years and that's the best thing about it! Will your house be paid off in 5 years?...LOL.
