Tuesday 4- Houses

 Welcome to Tuesday 4. 

A fun four question post continued in the memory of Toni Taddeo, It’s original author. 
Let’s have some fun. 

Todays Subject: Houses


1. In what part of the country is your current home located? North, South, East, West, Mid West, 
coastal, rural, city, mountains or plains?
I live in the Southeastern region of the United States. North Carolina is the 28th largest state and the 9th most populated.

 2. Why did you choose your present home, and how long have you lived there?
We have lived in the house we are in now for 16 years. We chose our home because it was a well built older brick home in an older neighborhood. We did not want one of those new type homes were you can reach out and touch your neighbors house. Also, At the time, we wanted to be close to my daughters high school to make it easier on us (its only a block away and she could walk but give a kid a car and they will drive next door). We are also close to family, work, and church. 
3. What do you like the most about your present home?
I like that I have some great neighbors our age we can be friends with. We do not worry much when we go out of town because we keep an eye out on each others house. As far has the house itself, I love the hardwood floors through out. 
4. If money were no object, is there anything you would change about your present home, or would you keep it just the way it is?
Oh I would make lots of changes. We ran out of time and money when we moved in to do any updating even though we did do a lot of repairs. I would love to remove the paneling in the den and I dream of a white kitchen. We talk about the things we would have done differently such as knocking out a few walls and open it up more. I would like a bigger and nicer patio and add the beach to the front yard. 

Thanks to Anne for organizing the Tuesday 4 questions.


  1. Your house sounds like a dream. I am a fan of older homes even with their quirks. A good neighborhood with neighbors who are friends is a blessing, too. I'm in the same neighborhood I grew up in and the neighbors were like family. Now I also have my mom behind us and our daughter next door.

  2. Ken designed our house in the woods so for this time of our lives it is just perfect for us.

  3. I like older homes too! So much character usually. Having good neighbors is a real blessing. Thanks for joining in.

  4. Your home sounds wonderful! Thank you for sharing it today! Loved your answers! Have a nice week!


  5. A beach in the front yard... perfection!!! Have a great week!

  6. WE are in the South, North Carolina, near the CAtawba River
    2.WE have had the house for 25 years, a duplex titled as a Condo. It was wooded when we bought. Still too many tll trees around it.
    3. The Basement, my play house. and the huge Bed room.
    4. I would SPLIT the DUPLEX, I had plenty of room when we built, but I built for my sister and I never thinking about the future. Both her and her hubby were older than us and passed before us. Now the other side is rented out.
    Love ya
