Today we put a deposit on an apartment, into which we'll move in two weeks! Our original plan was to stay here with the MIL through the holidays. We looked at this building a few weeks ago and loved it, but the upfront move-in cost was pretty steep so we decided to wait a bit longer. It's a newer building and the units are leasing quickly, so we decided to move forward in order to get into the type of unit we wanted. And we're SO READY to be in our own place again.
A few highlights of our new place:
- Washer and dryer! In our unit! No more communal, coin-operated laundry machines! I've dreamed of this my whole adult life.
- A bathtub. Our previous apartment had a stall shower only. Same with our bathroom here at the MIL's house. I see many baths in my future.
- High ceilings
- Big windows
- Fitness center
- Outdoor patio with firepit and barbecue (this is the building's, not our own private space)
It is a serious upgrade to our previous apartment complex, which had zero amenities.
I can't wait!
