Renting vs. Owning

A couple of weeks ago, I came across a cute little house one street over from
were I live. i have been renting now since I moved to Staunton and would love
to have a house of my own again. I have chandeliers in boxes, I dream of being
able to pick interior and exterior paint colors. Any way, here is the house I saw.
The price has been dropped several times and it does need a lot of work, so I went
threw the mortgage process and am trying to figure out how I could make it work.
here are a few pictures that I snapped.

White picket fence, cute frame house, large box woods and a dead tree right smack
in the front yard.
And more big trees in the back yard and side yard that are looming over the house.
Nice Lime Light Hydrangea, the yard could be a flower lovers dream, think cottage
style look with Hollyhocks and Roses. There is a sad attempt to a red door.
The house has an open porch, a screened in back porch and a deck.

Here are a few pictures that I took in side the house, everything needs to be painted,
the floors need some work and the stairs have a scary carpet on them, but hey it has a
gas fireplace.

 It would be a lot to take on, I would be doing most of the work by myself. Or do I
stay put renting the Farmhouse. I have been here over a year and have made it my home.
Here are a few pictures of the rooms upstairs.

The light, white and cute guest room and the back hall way.
I love my messy little dressing room with the big window and my makeup table.

The tiny bathroom with the claw foot tub and my very bright and light master bedroom.

I just cannot make up my mind as to what I should do, we will see. Last picture,
I picked a fabric for my new corner chair. beautiful....
