Well we moved again and we are really happy about it. This place has everything: a great location, hardwood floors, tall ceilings, a washer and dryer, and an extremely nice landlord. We found a diamond in the rough! Or, because the place was so awesome to begin with, and for a more accurate metaphor, we found a diamond!
Who’s got a gigantic living room with huge windows? We do!
Here’s the view from the opposite end of the living room. That “desk” is totally makeshift and we’ve got our eyes on craigslist for a better one. Isn’t the “fireplace” pretty sweet? (The place where you would have burned wood is covered up because of county code: “The National 24-Hour Particulate Standard (PM2.5) is threatened in the winter season when temperature inversions trap air pollution to the valley floors. The main source of winter pollution comes from residential woodstoves and fireplaces.”)
Our bedroom. We each have our own closet! I feel like I’m living in a movie star’s house or something! A movie star’s house with excessive wood paneling, but still.
Here’s the best picture I could find of the kitchen. We got that red table at an auction and it was the most thrilling purchase Tony and I have ever made. The blinds usually look a little less haphazard, I swear.
One thing you might notice in this drawing is that the washing machine is in the kitchen. At first Tony and I were skeptical, but we’ve come to see its utility: spill spaghetti sauce all over yourself while cooking? Just throw the clothes in the washing machine from where you’re standing!
Another thing you may notice is that this place is seriously huge. In addition to the whole main floor, we’ve also got a ton of private basement space, a portion of which I’ve made into a craft room for sewing, art-making, and general quiet-time fun. If I know you, please consider this an invitation to come visit; we have more than enough room for you!
