I'm interested in getting feedback from anyone who's owned/lived in both or either. The wifey and I are getting ready to buy a house here soon when our lease is up and we've been debating between a standalone family home or something like a townhouse. We currently live in a one bedroom apartment and we're expecting a baby in the next couple of months so another bedroom or two is a must. We're relatively young (in our mid-late 20's) and I like the idea of a townhome because it's (generally speaking) less responsibility... on the other hand being a musician and wanting to have a room to jam in, makes me want to have a stand alone home. I realize there's going to have to be compromises at some point, but from those with experience what say ye? Any advice or stuff I should keep in mind between the two?
