House hunting--Day 1 (Part 2)

As promised, I'm back to share some more of the homes we visited last week.  One of the other homes we viewed was the home of a childhood/high school friend:
Unfortunately, the current owners have renters right now who don't seem to have taken the best of care of the property.  The back yard was the perfect size for what we're looking for, but the decks on the back of the house need be replaced, and the kitchen wasn't in great shape either.  NEXT!

This house is currently second on our list:
It has the square footage we're looking for, a nice kitchen, and a shop for Adrian.  It also has a fenced-in yard for Sweet Pea (our St. Bernard), but it has one disadvantage--the shop was quite a ways down a hill from the house.  We like lots of other things, though, so it's still on the short list.

We looked at two homes in the Eagle Mountain subdivision, including this one:
Neither of them were what we're looking for.  The driveway of the home pictured above was WAAAAY too steep, and the other one had no back yard to speak of.

Part Three of the house hunting posts will include MY favorite home of the day and ADRIAN'S favorite home of the day, so stay tuned!

I like the one on your short list! A fenced in yard would be super for Sweet Pea!
