I will not give up............

We are still on the hunt for an old house with a story within it's walls.......I loved this one we found in Ball Ground, but it just was not pratical. The upstairs was WAY too small for us. I loved the tall ceilings & wide baseboards! The floor was another favorite of mine~ the old pealing paint could be lightly sanded & finished so that the white would stay but you could also see the wood~ ewwww, it'd be pretty with alittle love from the Engle Family~ yet I'll keep searching! I know the perfect house is out there, just waiting for us. (it it rest on Yukon Rd, now just getting the lady to sell is the trick) As for this Ball Ground house, it was fun just walking through it....realizing how many dinners were spent in the dinning area, how many children had played in that yard....just amazes me how it is still standing strong & how well built old home were. As we were in the master bedroom I pointed out the light switch to Rob, it was made by GE & was the coolest thing had two tiny push buttons & had been covered in rust. As I pushed it, I thought of back in the day when the house was new. I love old houses like this one & wished the walls could talk. I googled the address like crazy just to know the past families of the house, but came up with nothing. I wish we could purchase an old home of atleast 75+ with awesome land for the kiddos to grow up on....where they could run free in the woods making forts, and then come home for a PB&J sandwich (well except Lyla would have to have just the J, seeing as she can't do the peanut butter LOL) Anyway, I'm still on the hunt & refuse to give up~ Rob thinks I'm silly since we have a new, beautiful home~ but I really want something different than living in a subdivision for my children. (no offense Tabitha, we'd miss you & the boys being next door) So here's my request~ if you know of the perfect place.....send me an email~ I need all the help I can get. And it doesn't even have to be for sale~ I've knocked on many doors & found that some people are likely to sell.....even if Rob thinks it tacky :) I'm not above being tacky to get what I want♥ I'll post some pics later of the cool blue house I'm in LOVE with on Yukon Rd. later.
