I decided to finally take the leap from renting an apartment to owning a home. This was a huge step for me, but it was one that needed to be done since I was getting ready to marry the woman of my dreams. The best part is that I got a ready made family as part of the package. She has three kids who I love as my own, and I knew that we needed to talk with a real estate agent in Denver to find a home that was suitable for the five of us.
She can no longer have children, so we knew that we would only have the three. That meant that we needed a four bedroom home because we wanted the kids to each have their own bedroom. I also wanted them to have their own bathroom, plus I wanted a bathroom for guests too. That is a tall order, wanting a four bedroom house with at least six bathrooms, but obviously I am not the only one who wants something like that because there were quite a few homes with just that.
I also wanted a very modern kitchen because she loves to cook, and I had a feeling the kitchen was going to be where we spent a lot of time other than the living room or family room. A large yard was also needed because the kids are already outdoorsy. They would rather play hide and seek outside with us than a video game in their bedrooms. How lucky did I get with this family of mine! The realtor showed us a few places, and the fourth one was it. It even has a large finished basement that the kids can use when the weather is nasty outside. I don’t know how I got to be so fortunate, finding the perfect woman and kids, and now we have the perfect home as well.
