New Apartment

The last news of the weekend is that Lauren and I found a new apartment. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a much nicer kitchen. We'll still have gated parking, and the natural light and views are much better than our current place. We won't have a pool or workout room like we do where we are now, and we have to buy our own fridge (which isn't so bad, we have to do it sooner or later), but in exchange for that we'll be paying $125 LESS than we do now which isn't too shabby! It's located maybe 5 blocks from our current place, instead of being about 2 blocks west of CalTech, now we'll be about 2 blocks north, so we can continue to get by with just the one car for now. We actually have to double up on rent for a month, but this place is enough of a steal that it's worth it. And that means we can have a nice casual move, just bring over stuff a bit at a time, we can schedule movers for the heavy stuff for midmonth which is cheaper, we won't have to race for a cable hookup, etc. We are both very excited about this new place.

  • I sure as hell hope you are building floor models of the apartment again, complete with little furniture objects that you move around.

    Also, congrats on the new place! Now I know I can sleep in the 2nd bedroom when I visit!

  • Of course I am! I even looked into a freeware CAD program (QCad) to make it nerdier this time but I think it is not worth learning just for this, and besides, the paper version is more fun. I haven't had a chance to fully measure things yet but once I do, look out.

  • Congrats! I prefer a blue/beige color scheme in all guest bedrooms I stay in (just fyi).
