I Refuse to Be Optimistic, But…

We may have found it.  And by “it” I mean the house.  I don’t want to jinx it and I want to mull it over a little more, but maybe, just maybe.

And I know there are two circumstances under which you should never say “It’s so big and wonderful” without careful consideration of the implications of that (am I right, man-fuckers?) and the other is when buying a house, but it’s pretty awesome in a way that makes me happy.

It needs stuff, like a fridge and a dishwasher and I’m not exactly sure how to make a dishwasher fit.

But it also is the kind of place that would reward puttering around.

I think I will practice making put-put-put noises while I mull it over.

Put put put put put put put put put.

  1. I hope you’re right.

    While you’re making engine noises, think about a dishwasher on wheels, with a butcher-block or a pastry-board top. I knew someone who had one like that (pastry-board, in her case), and she swore by it.

  2. I have a dishwasher on wheels, which has an attachment for my kitchen sink faucet, that I do a bunch of food prep on. Living in a shotgun, a mini washer was necessary. So yeah, gotta second NM on that.

    PS to NM: Smooch.

  3. nm (and Lee), you’re my hero. We’re in an older house with no dishwasher and limited counter top/food prep space. This could be the perfect thing for our kitchen – I’ll have to look into it.

  4. And truth be told living without a dishwasher really isn’t the end of the world. I sort of love doing dishes after having people over, reminds me of childhood.

  5. We’re in an older house also. When my wife bought it there was no dishwasher because there wasn’t space for a full size in the kitchen. She managed to find a custom built one that does fit. It’s small, but it is under the counter and out of the way. Email me if you want to know where she got it.

  6. Any updates on this?

    Justin – I like doing dishes too. There’s something meditative about it.

  7. There are weensy countertop dishwashers out there too. The one my girlfriend and her husband have hooks right up to the kitchen faucet and plugs into a wall. If you can get the water to it, you could even put it in the big ol’ laundry room.

    Then again, I say this as a person who tends not to use dishwashers even when they’re available.
