Another Thought...

Chris comes home lastnight saying that instead of buying, we should build. This is perfectly fine with me, but the land we have is in Pansy, which is about 20 minutes or so from Warren. Chris has long talked about me quitting my job and going home and if we build over there, that would be fine with me because I would need to get up early! haha It doesn't matter, I would have to get up early anyway b/c of the kids going to school. It would be in the Woodlawn school district, but I believe we want the kids to attend Warren and we will continue to do so.
Now, the question is...do we sell now and take our profit to have money up front for starting the building process? We would have to live with his parents for the time it takes to build to save money because I don't want to rent. Or, do we wait until it is about time to be done with the house and sell and have that profit to pay down on the principal part of our building loan? Do we really want to build? Too many thoughts!

I think build, but maybe rent - living with the in-laws might drive you crazy (trust me, I"m doing it now....)

I wouldn't want to live with the inlaws....all 4 of you with them...that would drive you crazy quick! Maybe get you a cheap single wide trailer or something that you could see after you build the house.

Building a house is too overwhelming to me...but then again, I am the girl that can't make any decisions!!

Dont move in with the inlaws!!! They may be great and your kids would love it. But you would be there for months while your house gets built. It could get bad. Why risk it? Building is lots of fun! I loved picking out everything. But I hated dealing with the builder. They were not so willing to make small changes. Good luck!
