I want to own a house this year. It was a goal of mine last year- that I realized I needed a bit more time to accomplish- so it's on for this year. I'm hemming and hawing on if I want to buy a row home; standard, traditional Philly style house, or do I want to buy an old warehouse space, and live in a big loft..I've been looking at several of both, and i'm pretty much split down the middle. The loft idea comes with other plans- which I'll have to explain later, but includes a business venture that haley and I are going to pursue over the next couple of years. Look at all these amazing lofts though, it totally is swaying me to that side..
