Out of all the houses we looked at, we ended up being accepted at our first choice! It has a nice area for the kids upstairs, a Michigan basement so we finally have someplace for some more advanced food storage and someplace to go during tornado warnings, and the biggest yard of every place we looked at! For me, the basement and the yard were some of the biggest pluses for what we were looking at. On this house, I was also greatly encouraged by seeing the next door neighbor had clothes hanging on a line in the back yard, something that had been forbidden at the Trailer Park Homestead. I'm seeing a lot of potential for this new place.....but I haven't asked if I can have chickens yet!
