I've been looking at various real estate listings (as per usual for me) and also building company websites. You know, just for kicks.
And I wonder...
Someday, when we do have a house, I wonder if I will hop from square foot to square foot in the house and state how much money was spent. Most of the websites break down the cost (note: without interest) of a home by square foot. Though a great measure, I still find it amusing.
Suddenly, that broom closet became really expensive. Fourth bedroom, anyone?
It also makes me want to get a shrunken set of plans for the house and grid it into 360 little squares. Yes, and cross them off as the mortgage is paid.
I can see a conversation with a kid someday:
"Mom, why is my room not red yet?"
"Because you're not paid for."
