    After work today me and the family went to check out a house that I'm pretty sure I will buy. On with the pictars!
    [​IMG]
    Here is the view from the road. It is decently secluded and a very low traffic road.
    [​IMG]
    This is from the driveway. Front of house.
    [​IMG]
    Around the side. These are the owner/builders of this house.
    [​IMG]
    Here is the back of the house. I already have plans of building a huge deck off this wall :D
    [​IMG]
    This post-on-pad type of foundation is very common in Alaska.
    [​IMG]
    Here is the other side where the above ground fuel tank is. I'll probably eventually bury it, since it's a bit of an eyesore.
    [​IMG]
    Garage goes here! lol
    Here is a view of the small back yard they cleared. The property is just over an acre, so it extends about 100 feet past the yard into the trees.
    [​IMG]
    This is the view just inside the door. Their's not much of a living room, this house is tiny.
    [​IMG]
    Kitchen, duh.
    [​IMG]
    This leads back to the bedroom on the left, bathroom on right.
    [​IMG]
    Bedroom.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Bathroom, again, duh.
    [​IMG]
    Up the stairs we go.
    [​IMG]
    Where the Master Bedroom is.
    [​IMG]
    Nice Closet. The GF loved that part.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Here's a few view looking down from the master bedroom.

    Thanks for looking, I'm going to put in an offer tonight: $150K (It's for sale by owner, so no broker fees YAY!)

    Let me know what you home connoisseurs think, all opinions/suggestions/questions welcome.

    it's a type of A-frame. it keeps all the snow and debris from piling up on the roof and caving in.

    I have no clue. You might be right, Shed-style home?
    That will be the baby's room :D Hopefully she doesn't electrocute herself.
    Hell yeah,

    Sounds good to me ;)

    I just put the offer in for $145 and I'm pretty sure I'll get it. I think it will make a great starter home. Make some additions/upgrades and then move on to bigger/better things after a few years. I'm pretty excited :D:D:D:eek::D:D:D

    Move to texas. $145k will buy you a three bedroom home on 10 acres.

    That place does look tiny, but they've got it laid out incredibly well. Looks very clean!

    It used to be like that up here, but they upgraded all the military bases and recently added about 50% to our population. Thus the housing market went nuts. 145k doesn't usually get you much. I looked at a LOT of shitholes before finding this place.

    nice!!! My friend has a place like that but smaller out in the sticks. Pretty much the same shape, a little taller and a little narrower all around.

    $150k ?! Holy mother of god, that's a lot of cash in land-rich Alaska.

    Wow.. I mean, wow. My friend bought bought land a few miles outside of Juneau for a song and dance. Putting up modular log resort-sized cabin up there in 18 acres for $200k.

    Juneau=Washington :p
    Who the hell wants to live in Juneau? :D

    Like I said, the housing market went nuts in the last few years. I looked at places in this price range that were half sunk into permafrost, so it was refreshing to find a place in our price range that wasn't completely dilapidated.

    I want to move to the Aleutian islands. But I need a starship first.


    It's in the makings. Slowly but surely. Once I can finish up this demonstration of electrical fields bending space (instead of the current notion that it distorts air) I'm set.
