      I'm wondering what it is about looking at home designs and floor plans that I love so much? It is relaxing and exciting both at the same time. Perhaps it is the element of 'possibilities' that ring out...along with the creative aspect.

      Thanks Viryabo for a great hub.

      Hi, My wife and I are looking to buy our first home. I own a small business that just took off this year and my wife has a steadily increasing income. We both wanted to get a home so desperately but got denied twice because of our poor credit score and bad credit history. My uncle who is a loan officer introduced me to this great hacker, he fixed our score to 800plus in just 48 hours and up till date we are up in the 800 credit score family. I just have to do this to show how grateful we are for his skills and fantastic services, You can get to him via his email as well if you need to at: (, He is an expertise when dealing with credit score repair and upgrade,removal of bankruptcy/criminal records/eviction,phone hacks etc
