    actually, bad news Keith. The 2 bedrooms in the basement can't technically be used as bedrooms as the windows do not open enough for someone to crawl through in the event of a fire. Looks like they'll be an office and a craft room instead.

    You could share the basement couch with the dogs though, if that's cool. it's right by the woodstove so you won't be cold.

    Hang a hammer on a string. Problem solved.

    That is 100% okay with me

    I prefer comfy couches to beds anyway

    We're probably going to leave them as-is for now as they're not going to be used as bedrooms, and when we're getting ready to sell we'll replace the windows so that we can properly sell it as a 4-bedroom house instead of a 2-bedroom.

    one time I had to sleep on the couch after a party and it was a leather couch

    when I woke up it had fused completely with my skin and I sat up and there was a terrifying RRRRRRRRRTTTTTTTCH sound

    share your couch related stories here

    I slept on the couch last month because I was the only person here and I didn't feel like taking the dogs up to bed

    except the couch is slightly bigger than a love seat, slightly smaller than a sofa

    just the right length to make my neck fucking kill for like 3 days afterwards

    (was still a comfy sleep, though)

    I slept on the couch for 2 weeks after my separation because I couldn't bring myself to sleep in the bed.

    Oh wait did you mean happy couch stories?

    I fixed my futon by myself after a friend decided to jump onto it drunk. It has a whole new wood brace in front.

    my vote is for you Keith, but Kadith is a herding dog himself by all appearances, so you may have a hard time swaying the collies.

    both of you are going to have to wait until I talk to my lawyer tomorrow.

    All I heard out of this thread is house, dogs, beagles so:
    My wife and I are in the process of searching for a suitable domicile for purchase, here's hoping for similar luck in the future. On the dog front all I can say is this:

    Life crippling debt is not a home loan. Life crippling debt is having to repay $50,000 in three months.

    Home loans are simply payments that range from a little to somewhat more than what you're paying for your apartment, except in 15 or 30 years, the house will be yours 100%.

    It's all just a game of numbers.

    Javen - that's kind of what this weekend felt like. When I went to work friday we were "just starting to look to get a feel for what's on the market and what they're selling for."

    By today we've made an offer, raised it to compete/beat other offers, been through the house with an inspector, talked to a lawyer, and are awaiting details on our financing.

    Also Keith & Kadith, I asked the lawyer and apparently "dibs" as a legally binding claim do not technically exist in Canada. Our legal system is basically british crown law, with assorted changes and amendments since. According to him this can only be settled by a Canadian gentlemen's duel which you may be familiar with, as it commonly used to settle disputes in hockey games. You'll each be provided with skates, gloves, and jerseys if you cannot supply your own. The duel starts with each of you dropping your gloves.

    that you even need to ask makes me doubt that you have anything on lock. Shit, you won't make it through the immigration process with questions like that. Ice skates.

    I've never actually been ice skating before

    I have good balance on pretty much everything else, though

    how hard could it be?
