Which House Should We Buy?

We just fell in love with the scenery in Arkansas on our last trip there. The weather was beautiful, the people so friendly, and we know that the winters there are much more mild than in Kansas. So…

We’re moving!

We’ve narrowed our house selection down to two prospects and need your help in choosing our future home.

Should we buy……

Number One?

Number One

Β This pioneer revival cottage has 3 rooms, a large lot, and outdoor plumbing.

Β Or should we buy Number Two?

Number Two

This lovely 2 room cabin has an all natural heating and air conditioning system. Landscaping has been done by the previous owners.

Help, we just can’t decide which house to buy!



Cattle, corn, wheat, beans, mud, snow, ice, and drought. Plenty of fresh air and quiet. Our life is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes joyous, but never boring.

  1. Oh, most assuredly House # 2!!!! Much more personality!!! πŸ™‚

  2. Sandra says:

    No 1 definately. You need that extra room. No Maybe no 2. Landscaping is so expensive.Welcome back. I missed you.

  3. Glenda says:

    Toss a coin since I just can’t decide!

  4. Doe in Mi says:

    It should be #2 because of the beautiful chimney and some lovely landscaping. Altho #1 may have a better view out over the land. Hmmm, this is a tough one!

  5. Linda says:

    I think #1 is much more you!!!
    I’ll help you decorate!!:)

    You two are choosing the same types of homes that my DH chooses as retirement homes for us….except your choices are in much better condition…..PErsonally—I would hold out for the next one down the road…..LOL!!!!

  7. Rebecca says:

    Is there a third choice??

  8. Carol says:

    The outdoor plumbing is a plus! I can see the excitement on your face! I hope you don’t displace any critters when you move in, they may want to fight! Welcome back funny lady!

  9. Cameo says:

    Has to be house # two all the way.
    The big selling point I see is a nice fenced yard.

    Wow! you had us fooled at first. But after looking at both pictures we realized you are just joking. You obviously don’t need help picking your new home as you already know the secret is to walk the prospective properties barefoot to, so to speak, get a feel for the right one.

  11. #1. You’ll have more space to garden.
    Too funny.
    By the way, did you annoy any of the locals by calling it R-Kansas instead of R-Kan-Saw?

  12. Carol says:

    Such a difficult decision…not sure I can help. How about tossing a coin? You could let Kitty choose!

  13. Dianna says:

    Bob picked up on the fact that you were barefoot too. That didn’t look like the safest place to go without shoes!

  14. Becky L says:

    I think house no. 2 is better, the fence is nice and I like the looks of the house better than the first one. I had to look at the barefeet as well…ya all are just having too much fun on your trips. Phil and I do the same thing when we see an abandoned house. One more payment and it’s all ours (seen on a postcard). LOL!

  15. Glyndalyn says:

    You do not look too thrilled about either house.

  16. Louise S says:

    Oh, house #2 is much more quaint and charming. Great potential! Let us know if you get a good deal on it!

  17. Tina says:

    Home #2 has the best landscaping I think. That is my choice. By the way are you barefoot?

  18. Well, number one has a skylight in the roof, so you can see the stars at night. πŸ™‚
    And I think we ALL saw the same thing… what on earth are you doing running around there barefoot? You are a country girl… you know there’s snakies in the grass.

    • Louise S says:

      I think she was trying to depict a scene that you would see if you actually lived in a house like that in the hills of Arkansas. You know, like poor people who have no shoes. (I’ll bet her shoes were just out of camera range.) You nailed it, Suzanne, no shoes and the blank expressions on your face! LOL!
