Hey everyone!

On a recent visit to the area to see my future mother-in-law, I noticed there were a lot of brick homes, and a lot of them were a very dark red brick. I LOVE that look!!! Up here in PA you never see homes like that. This is just another reason of MANY to move down there. My fiance and I are SOO excited about the prospect! I think he would love to be in SC since that's where he's from, but I've always loved NC so that's probably where we'll end up. Ok, I'm done beaming about the beautiful homes there!

Maybe you could find a home on the border lol.
That would confuse me with taxes and services

Glad you like the homes here. There is many fascinating older , new, and historical homes to choose from.

I know what you mean! Around here (Columbus) most of the homes are brown. It's so dreary. I don't get it.

I love the brick too! I am from California and all we get is stucco.
A lot of my friends see the brick here and aren't fans, but I think brick has character.

Thats awesome! I love hearing everyones views on the architect and materials of their homes. There is something to be said about having a house that has it's own personality (so to speak). We are currently living in a 200 year old farm house, there are lots of old stories about it's history but we are SOOO glad the oil heating season is over!!!
