The Great House Hunt, Part Deux

More model homes, more floor plans, more sore feet, more time on the road. The Great House hunt started as a plan to build a simple, compact, log home. After all, we've lived -- for the most part -- in a 950 square foot condo in Arlington for the past 23 years, so why do we now need 2600 square feet, two floors, a large deck and so on? A simple bungalo would do. You know, something with a den, a spare bedroom for occasional weekend guests and a small yard that won't take all day to mow. For the past two decades, yard work meant sweeping off the Astroturf on the balcony.
