Well, the house is a dream for when I retire, assuming we move to a state that doesn't tax pensions. I was trying to get an idea whether the dream would be feasible for us. When it comes to houses, it seems like the one question you didn't think to ask, is the one you wished you had!
Thanks! Did you ever build your house? My screen name was just a fluke, my daughter was watching The Lion King years ago and I was on another message board and needed a screen name and that popped up. But I have kept it as it kind of matches my attitudes in life.
