House Hunting: when homes attack!

Today, a house attacked my husband. We are shopping for a new home. This is an especially prudent course of action for anyone who’s house it to be demolished soon. But that’s another story. As I imagine many house-hunters have done somewhere along their search, we decide to “up” our house budget a little to…
