Quoting 624582:" They can be pretty awesome. I do love the idea of setting up a basement for entertaining guest, just ... [snip!] ... Of course they serve no other purpose than to keep your home away from a flood if one were to happen, but I really like them."
Quoting ღ.ღ.ღ:" The house we live in right now has a basement, and for some reason it creeps me the smurf out. I HATE ... [snip!] ... me the smurf out. I HATE going down there, doesn't help a few years ago DH's grandma found a snake skin down there. Forget that."
Quoting 624582:" Oh you weren't aware? Man caves are mandatory, lol. That's exactly why DH wants a basement. He's willing to settle for a garage, though."
Quoting 624582:" Screw that. When we lived in Central TX there were snakes, scorpions, spiders, and tons of bugs. I'm ... [snip!] ... cute lizards are all we really have to deal with now. In the summer wood roaches/tree roaches are common, they're disgusting."
Quoting ღ.ღ.ღ:" Hahaha DH's friend recently bought his first house and was having a hard time raking leaves (never had ... [snip!] ... and if he'd like a 4 bedroom rather than a 3 and his exact words were "i don't care as long as i get my man cave" "Haha! That sounds like my husband. For every house we've looked at DH wonders off to figure out where the best place in the home or on the property would suit his man cave needs. I'm not much better, the main rooms I'm concerned about are the kitchen and the bathroom(s). I can't wait to have a huge open kitchen, we've been in apartments for too long.
Quoting ღ.ღ.ღ:" When we lived in TX our major problems were mice (we lived near a huge field) and wolf spiders, those ... [snip!] ... dead ones) black widows (i've seen 2 outside) and mosquitoes those little smurfers try to invade the house during the summer."

Quoting ღ.ღ.ღ:" I've been looking at houses for months, our must haves are a dishwasher, i need a laundry room not just ... [snip!] ... a big bath tub. Plus i want a ton of counter space, we don't have much in the house we're in right now and it drives me NUTS."
Quoting 624582:" That's pretty much exactly what we're looking for, the only thing I'm not highly concerned about is ... [snip!] ... have one I'll complain about, lol. I really want a very open layout, mainly a large kitchen that is open to the dining room."
Quoting ღ.ღ.ღ:" We grew up with a dishwasher but every time we tried to fix it, our kitchen would end up flooded, so ... [snip!] ... got to use one, my first time using one 5+ years ago i put dawn dish soap in it. Talk about a bubbly mess lol."
Quoting 624582:" When DH and I moved into our first apartment together he would see that I would often grab the dish ... [snip!] ... so when I came out to the kitchen to get something to drink it looked like a foam party was taking place in our kitchen. lol"
