no basement
I thought you were in or near Seattle/Redmond, WA.
Is it usual to have no basement in a climate like that?
Where does all the HVAC equipment go?

It's typically just stored away in a closet either in the lower level or in the garage. I live in Iowa, where temps range from -20 in the winter to 100+ in the summer and all my HVAC equipment is located in small closet on the lower level of the house.

Mrsskoorb says "That's a nice house." I agree. We made an offer today on this house. It's a bit of a fixer upper :) Contract should be accepted tomorrow or monday but we're still not positive yet on loan approval given our recent immigration to US and limited credit history but we'll see!

Well, cut off my legs and call me 'shorty' - I always thought that Seattle had colder Winters and warmer Summers than that.

That's a sh|tload of rain, though, no?

(BTW, notfred, I live nearly 3,000 miles from Seattle and have never been there. Am I really supposed to know the seasonal temperatures?)

Said the famous Samuel L. Clemens, "The mildest winter I ever experienced was summer in Seattle." :D

Looks very chic. Thats about a 115-120k home here in Lawrence. Our first home was similar to that, a bit older, but similar nonetheless. It only had 3 bedrooms though, 2 with a den actually. We quickly outgrew it. I think thats a great start to home ownership.

CONGRATS!!

but really nice house dude! Congrats!


yeah, kool,you even have a garage!,LOL I have a backyard,but no driveway/garage :(
i have a large house,built about 100 years ago,it needs new windows,siding,insulation,etc...

i just put 2 windows in the 1st floor bedroom,I am going to use that room for my bedroom,as soon as i finsh the window,minor remodeling job....it will be a lot cooler,easier to cool off for the summer,than a 2nd floor bedroom.

Best wishes! Don't forget to give copies of the pics to your insurance company!

Congrats.. Is this in a development community where all the houses are built together by the same builder company? I can't wait to own a home and stop throwing my money away on rent every month!

Ok, but I guess it's not really THAT different a climate than San Francisco, which is like an hour from here.

But what part of IOWA do you live in? I really like all the trees and the enticing clouds! Down here in SoCal we do get alot of sun and it doesn't get to hot or cold, and sure we do have the best looking people here in San Diego but, THERES NO FRICKIN RAIN!!!

I am going to build my own straw bale house in eastern-washington this summer (on 10 acres of arable land).

That is a decent house though ;) where in washington?
