Main roads are different everywhere especially Nz. Like is it a main road in like Lower Hutt where it’ll be quite busy or is it a main road similar to greytown or Carterton where it’s a state highway. Just thinking noise etc. But the work truck... people drive everywhere they’ll spot it no matter what. Maybe he is deflecting another issue, like worried about the actual cost or scared to commit to a bigger home etc.
You really need to discuss with him and talk about what can be changed and what is suitable. If he isn’t willing to talk then I would ask him what is bothering him
I think he may not be ready to move so keeps looking for faults. Is he worried about money? Have a chat. I live on a busy residential road, 50km limit. No one does the limit and it’s noisy. I can see his point with that one.
I get the main road thing, also would you really want to live on a main road with kids?
Walls can be painted.
You both need to sit down and work out what is negotiable and what isn’t and go from there. If Yu find a house that you like and he doesn’t you need to find out exactly why he doesn’t like it and work out whether they are serious things to think about.
Sit down and have a chat. Walls can be painted and things can be changed easily. I feel for you. That’s frustrating.
