Jeff and I love our beautifully restored home. We do not, however, love Portland anymore. I wish we could pick up our house and put it someplace else, but that's not possible. Ever since our last property tax bill, we've been contemplating a move.
This week we've started poking around property listings in a few different cities. We're still pretty casual in our efforts. We don't know if or when we'll move, but we've started exploring our options.
On Saturday, we drove down and visited Sandy, Oregon. It's a small town not far outside of Portland. It was a nice little town with some cute Western-themed facades along their main business route. I wish I'd remembered to bring a camera. Here are a couple of photos I swiped from a google search.
one teardown house. The lot would be perfect to build on, but the owners want way too much money for the disgusting little shack. We liked Sandy, but I'm not sure if we can deal with 80-inches of rain a year. LOL
We're also planning to look at Springfield and Prineville, Oregon.
If we find the right house, or the right lot to build on, we might just make the jump.
