My sister's new house is a dream. Three levels (thanks to the Michigan's soil they have basements here) and it sits on an acre in Long Lake Township. The backyard is a giant half acre and is fenced in. I look out the living room and kitchen windows every day I'm here and I think, 'Wow, that's a great back yard." Not to say that my back yard isn't nice, we just need to do something to make it a place where we can play.
