The "Must-Have" List

As we begin our preliminary look at available existing houses, we have made our list of “must-haves” in the house we select.

1. We must have ceiling vigas, at least in one or two rooms. Not beams, but the round vigas.
2. We must have tiled floor in the living areas of the house. We prefer porcelain, ceramic or travertine. Brick floors are also acceptable to us. Carpeting in bedrooms is okay.
3. We must have lots of windows and views of the mountains.
4. We must have at least one kiva fireplace in the house.
5. We must have radiant heat.
6. We must have a large kitchen.
7. We must have storage, storage, storage.
8. We must have at least one portal and courtyard.

Towanda, when you get those tile floors, here is a word of advice. Get some squishy shoes--something like crocs or easy to slip on sneakers. When we first started walking on our new tile floors barefoot we felt like we had shin splints--very achey legs. Of course we are old and arthritic ;)... Now that we remember to wear something with some cushioning we are used to the hard surfaces and love the wonderful coolness underfoot.
