Tyler moved into his apartment 2 years ago. It has been the perfect bachelor pad for him, while still being fairly nice. I started moving my stuff into this 1 bedroom/1 bath after we got married. Needless to say, it started to get a little cramped. While it’s been a lovely place for him, and a fine temporary dwelling for the two of us – IT’S TIME TO GO! We’re moving into a new 2 bedroom/2 bath apartment this month! While we’re packing up the place, I thought I’d take you on a tour of our humble abode and show you a few things I’ve liked and which things I’m not sad to leave. Excuse our mess :-).
High ceilings in a small-ish apartment make a BIG difference. I’ll miss them.
“Do you smell that?”
I won’t miss the slight cigarette smell that still lingers from the previous renters. 😛
Hey, not so bad! The appliances are decently updated, and overall it’s a pretty nice space.
Except for the dishwasher that doesn’t work.
CURSE YOU, DISHWASHER!
Look closer, my friend.
You will see to faux granite spray that wasn’t exactly carefully applied.
The walls. I hate them.
The apartments weren’t built with proper insulated dividing walls so we can hear every beat dropped by our aspiring DJ-neighbor. His new thing is creating some really disturbing Dracula synth noises. It’s great…..
Two big sliding glass doors that let in light and lead out onto a nice balcony.
A nice area, though I could probably count the number of times we’ve used it on one hand. Side note: Be aware that someone else’s balcony is underneath you when you water the plants…. Whoops :-/….
Peace out, Squirrels! You little devils.
Okay, they’re cute and we like to take pictures of them occasionally, but they completely tore up our plants. Now you might say, “But Megan, they were just burying their acorns for winter.” No! They didn’t even bury anything. They just dug them up for fun, I’m pretty sure.
Tyler and I don’t have to battle for counter space. Though we do anyway, just for fun.
The dreaded faucet.
This water is either ice cold or dreadfully hot. You must decide – do you want to wash your face in Lake Superior or Satan’s bath water? Take your pick.
Big bedroom with a walk-in closet.
Plenty of room for activities. Though, the closet seemed to shrink once I started moving in… Hmmm.
Creepy murder closet #1
I only open this door if I absolutely have to. *shudders*
But wait, where’s the washer/dryer hookup?
There isn’t one….. :’-(
While it’s mostly a man cave, I appreciate having the extra space for my craft stuff.
Creepy murder closet #2
Sorry, Christmas tree.
Creepy murder closet #3 / Spider headquarters
Tyler says he’s never seen a spider in here. But I just have a feeling this is where they have their conferences.
And there you have it! I’ll give it a 3 out of 5 stars for being fairly decent with lots of storage. Stay tuned for pictures of our new apartment! I’ll get to decorate all on my own without feeling guilty for moving his man stuff ;-).
