Jennifer and Stan Phelps bought their dream home, a historic 1930s stone colonial, in their home state of Connecticut shortly after they married. But after 9 years of remodeling and customizing the house exactly the way they want it, they're picking up and moving to the south in search of better schools for their two boys and warm weather year round. And although Jen and Stan were able to agree on Raleigh, North Carolina, choosing a house is a different story. Stan wants a completely new, smaller place with no maintenance whatsoever, but is not opposed to a townhouse. Jen wants a larger place that has character, with a screened-in porch, and she'll by no means consider anything with shared walls. Will the couple find a place that suits both of them, or will they spend another 9 years searching?
