My house is beautiful and my house is big

My house is beautiful and my house is big


which sentence would be best for saying: my house is beautiful and my house is big

mi casa es bonita y mi casa es grande or mi casa es bonita y la es grande.

Also, i am a little unlcear on which would be better for describing a child hood, preterite, imperfect of perhaps even the past participle.

sorry about this, but then again how would i say i have been in the past paticiple (that would be he something) or is that the wrong tense?

I think imperfect goes best with childhood. There is an entire lesson in the Learn Spanish section about that (Lesson 2.9)

Hi Speed. Welcome to the forum.

I'd go with "Mi casa es bonita y grande."

As for childhood, the imperfect is the tense you want. For example, "Cuando era un niño tenía dos perros."

Mi casa es grande y bonita?

Whether in childhood or otherwise, imperfect is for an action that was repeated, customary or ongoing, such as "We watched Star Trek every Thursday." For a specific event, use preterit, such as "I fell in a well when I was 3."
