Homes for Dogs

I love our house. We have a great little house… yes it is only 1300 square feet. How do we fit 7 big dogs in 1300 square feet, you may ask? LOL well we do an okay job. We have a basement that is our TV room with lots of dog beds (though usually you’ll find the dogs on the couch). I do wish our rooms were bigger, though… and sometimes I toy with the idea of getting a bigger house, but I don’t want to get a new mortgage.

The current mortgage crises is interesting to me. Getting Commercial Mortgages was quite easy, even if you didn’t have the credit, or the funds… but now, I hear, it’s getting more difficult. Having dogs, I needed to buy a house, as I couldn’t find a rental that would allow me to have the dogs I have. But if you get a mortgage, be responsible. Don’t get more than you can pay for. Our mortgage should be paid off in two years, and I am thrilled. Then I can really pay for all my dog sports!

  1. Yupe, the morgage crisis is kinda freakin’ me out too. I still want rental property, but have put it off. I want a loan w/nothing down! Will have to see….

    Christina’s last blog post..New Bag !

  2. We had a house that was a bit under 1300sf and no back yard to speak of. That is what we wanted at the time and it was great. Now we have an acre and the house I think is 2300 sf? I like it ok, but there sure is a whole lot of work, raking leaves, water the grass and mow and water and mow and did I mention water? We also had to arrate the yard and put pre-emergent on it and next…. some seeding of the dirt patches from a pool from the previous owner. If you ask me, I would rather live in a small house and have a place to go play with my dogs. But only where there is sun and warmth yearound. Maybe what you could do is by a place in vegas for the winter and keep the one here in utah for the summer and ask you boss if you could tele-comute 😉
