Hicks House

From Builder Basic to Beautiful

Trying to Buy a “Dream House”


For the last few months my fiance and I have been a hunt to find a house to call home.  Currently we live in a condo he bought before we met.  The “bachelor pad”

Although he has done his best to make me feel like it is my home as well, it never quite fit me.  For one thing it was the perfect size for a single man with a ton of hobbies.  Add a woman who is overly into sewing and crafting and a little dog… instantly too small.

Such has been our living situation for the last 3 years.  With our wedding approaching in less than a month we are looking for a place that will fit the three of us (yes I count the dog, she’s our four-legged furry daughter).

We’re looking for a place like this:


We both love the traditional Colonial look and like the openness new homes provide.

Problem: These homes are EXTREMELY expensive in our lovely state of Connecticut.  The one above is available and currently owned by the builder, making it slightly cheaper than having it custom built.

Here’s hoping he’ll accept our offer and we can move in, decorate and make it our own!

  2. I’m really impressed with your writing skills and also with the
    layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself?

    Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it is
    rare to see a great blog like this one these days.


  3. Quality posts is the secret to interest the viewers to pay a visit the website, that’s what this
    website is providing.


  4. Hi, Neat post. There’s a problem along with your
    web site in web explorer, might test this? IE still is
    the market leader and a huge component of folks will leave out your fantastic writing because of this


    • Thanks Sterling, I’ve noticed it as well in an older version of IE and when I updated my internet it loaded properly, not sure why that was. Glad to hear you enjoy the blog! 🙂


  5. We are a gaggle of volunteers and starting a brand new scheme in our
    community. Your site provided us with valuable info to work
    on. You have done an impressive job and our entire neighborhood can be grateful to you.


  6. Hola! I’ve been following your web site for some time now and finally got the
    bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from Kingwood Tx!
    Just wanted to say keep up the excellent work!


  7. With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of
    plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement.
    Do you know any methods to help prevent content from being ripped off?
    I’d truly appreciate it.


I'd love to hear from you!
