Figures you like mature houses.
Funny thing is I think we are about to buy a new build for the first time. Kind of a mega townhouse. Elevator to get my fat ass upstairs.

Does it have a kitchen in the basement and on the top floor?
Terrace level not built out yet -- if we buy it we'll just go with a bar down there.

Pump went out on our radiant heating system so the HVAC company is ordering a new one for us. Feel like this system is a constant nickel and dime but it’s also 20 years old so I guess replacing moving parts is to be expected.

Meeting with our architect later this month. We finished our renovations in 2020 right as the covid lockdowns etc. began, so we have had a few years to get used to it all. I think our idea was to turn a small covered patio (right now large enough for a bistro set) into a hallway to a three/three and a half season screened in porch. There are French doors off the master already just above the covered patio that I think we will also try to utilize and put a second floor patio off the master in as well. My pipe dream is to have a column wine fridge in the hallway out as well as a built in cabinet humidor to match beside it, but we’ll see how far along the process that get nixed. I’m not holding my breath.

Also going to meet with a landscape design company to formalize our landscape plans and phases. We’re letting our current outdoor maintenance contract end because the company has been meh at best but ideally will continue the pool service and irrigation through them if they aren’t dicks about it because we like their dudes who do those jobs.

All of this for a house I live 500 miles away from, and I will for the next 42 months. Feels good man
