OK, I know this photo is a repeat, but I am waiting until we have the keys to take new pictures of the house.
The Mr. signed the P&S last week and closing is set for the end of September.
After a lot of thought (and tour of the neighborhood to view similar homes) it has become clear that adding a garage is too much of a financial risk. The most practical way to do it would be to restore the original garage (which is now partially a family room) and build a new family room off the back.
To pop a garage out the front (the original plan) would entail a total makeover on the roof as the existing Swiss Chalet feature has a ridge that is not centered properly.
Our realtor will no doubt pitch a fit as it appears garages are now back in vogue, but I guess she will just have to work all that much harder to sell the property once it is all spiffed up.
See you in a few weeks.
