So we have an awesome house in PR. It's very large (by my standards) around 2,800 sq ft. When you have a growing family of 7, I feel it is justified and perfect. (When it is clean I will post photos. So don't hold your breath.)
It is all tile and some of it is dated - from the 90s - and we have given it a facelift in some areas.
I really love it.
But, being a homeowner stinks.
We came home to cucarachas (cockroaches), bugs in most of our grains, and some other necessary, quick fixes.
We now have bug exterminator, a bunch of trashed food, and today we will have clean inverters (high efficiency-air conditioners).
AND I wish we had a dishwasher. I need a dishwasher. My children have finally started helping me, which makes it so much faster, but still, I would LOVE a dishwasher.
The problem is that the countertops are to shallow in depth to put a dishwasher by the sink. I am so tempted to extend the counter top (in a L shape) with butcher block or stainless steel covered plywood) to get that thing to fit better. We have space to extend it. We have corian (whatever they are - the fake, plastic stone). Can you cut this with out cracking the rest? Because seriously, it would be an "quick" awesome fix if we could.
