Real estate rambling--

What do I want in a house? Whines and I have slightly different desires on this front.

I think the kitchen at my house is big enough. A large one just lends itself to clutter. I think I'd like a medium sized kitchen with lots of storage more than a large kitchen.

Rooms--if it's just going to be Whines and I sharing a house, then I guess we need one large bedroom and either a small bedroom or a study. But I think we both want a roommate, maybe two in the future, though I don't know who that person will be. It cuts costs a bit, but more, we like company.

Living rooms--two, bare minimum. One for entertainment--lights and TV. One for quieter company. If one of these rooms is large enough to double as a dining room, that would be ideal.

Dining room--This is only a medium priority for me, and isn't even on Whines's list. I like the idea of one. But I'm elitist. A nicely appointed dining room is a mark of sophistication, for me. If there's a room large enough to serve the needs of both a chat room and a dining room, that would be ideal. If we have three living rooms, somehow, then one of these might serve this need. A kitchen with a dining nook might do just as well, but that doesn't have the elitist thing going. You can't entertain in the kitchen.

Bare minimum: I think we're looking for something with 3 bed, 2 bath, 2 living areas, and a garage. If there was a good rate for something in a good location with only 2 bed, that'd work and we can upgrade later, but it's not my preference.

Babble, babble.

I'm especially fond of my kitchen - lots of storage, plenty of counter space, and an island with a raised bar (16" wide, not 12") so friends can be social while you're cooking, without being in the way.

Heh. If they weren't in my way, how would I recognize them? The way I cook, less counterspace=less mess. To a point, anyway. But a big kitchen would be nice, it's just not a high priority.

Less counterspace does not equal less mess in my tiny kitchen. It means more mess on the floor (cause things get knocked onto it, or spilled while trying to work over no counter) and more mess on the kitchen table (also tiny!)
