We are going to be buying a vacation home with a fireplace in the living room soon.
This is something that I have been dreaming of doing for years now.
We have never been in the position financially to buy a vacation home until just recently, so this is a dream come true for me and my husband. We have been shopping around for a while now and we have a really good real estate agent. She has been showing us all kinds of places that she thinks that we would like, but the main thing that is important to me is the fact that I want a place with a fireplace. I finally told her that if the homes do not have fireplaces, then we don’t even need to look at them. I really don’t care if it has a gas log fireplace or a wood burning fireplace, as long as there’s a fireplace of some kind. I don’t really think that my husband cares one way or the other, but having a fireplace is very important to me. My husband says that the most important thing is the heating and cooling system. He is more concerned about the efficiency of the furnace, since we’re going to be buying in an area that is known for its cold climate. I guess that makes sense, but I really don’t care so much about the furnace. I’m planning to be sitting in front of our crackling, cozy fireplace so I can stay warm. I will just leave the thermostat settings up to him, I guess!
