I am also drawn to the character and charm which comes in many older homes. Of course, if we bought a home, we would have to put our own stamp on it, but this usually just involves cosmetic changes......the fun stuff!
If we build, or buy a newer home, my goal would be to add those special touches to add character: give the home 'good bones' with moldings and architectural details.
So, do you love the charm of a well loved and lived home, or the excitment of building a new home customized just for your family?
