The word is out - we've signed a contract on a townhouse in a town two and a half hours away. I didn't go into this process considering a townhouse, but it quickly became the best option in our price range. It has three bedrooms on the second floor - enough space for guests (hint, hint) for now and more kids later.
It also has a fenced back yard. This is a must-have with an active H. An open floor plan on the first floor rounds out our list of wants.
It'll be wonderful to be in our own house again. Maybe I'll even paint some walls.
