The meeting went well which means I’m moving!
I will be paying about $400 more a month than I am paying here. It includes water and trash, pet rent ($10 per pet), and a carport. So a total of just under $1200.
This is for 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. And it’s more than I would like to pay, but circumstances have kind of made my decision for me.
I would have been fine with a one-bedroom and one bathroom, but this is the one that became available and I took it. Guess I’ll be blogging till I keel over! It’s bigger than I actually wanted, but I took what I could get.
I will have a stackable washer/dryer, an ice maker, and a built-in microwave. I’ll have 1150 square feet compared to 725 square feet here.
I’ll have someone above me, but I’ll be on a corner.
The carport is not in front of my apartment because the carports are on the outside of the apartments and grounds.
The Floor Plan:
Obviously, the above photo is of the second floor. Because there is a balcony shown instead of a patio.
A tai chi class was going on while I was there. They plan various activities. Every month a calendar comes to your door letting you know about that.
The grounds are very pretty. These photos are from their website.
So much has changed in terms of rent and home prices. Everything has gone up quite a bit, and I just have to go with the flow because I want out of here.
When I moved where I currently am, I thought I’d live here forever. But then I didn’t know there would never be any improvements. Or that the place would go downhill as it has.
Or that there would be rats from the sewage and snakes coming down some unfortunate residents’ ceiling vents!
I won’t have my big patio space, but I will make do. It will challenge me to think up ideas of how to work with it.
A Few Residents’ Patio Spaces:
All the patios spaces were different-sized.
Mine was basically what you see under the roof and then what is beyond that was a rocky surface. I’ll have to think about what to do about that.
Below are other residents’ patio spaces.
My overall opinion was that these are homes the residents’ take pride in, rather than just your run-of-the-mill apartments.
The complex was built in the seventies.
Some residents have enclosed their outdoor space as a screened-in porch. Apparently, you can decorate your patio pretty much as you want at your own expense.
Inside The Apartments:
I have no idea what my kitchen will look like. And won’t until I’m moving in because someone is living there.
As you can see there are white cabinets and there are brown cabinets.
This is a living room from their website. I don’t know how close this is to what my own apartment living room will look like.
The apartment will have your basic 1970s bathrooms. Nothing fancy. My second bedroom will probably be my office.
My move is scheduled for January 26. Now if I can just get things given away or taken to Goodwill and the rest boxed up. If someone lives in this area and wants to look at my paintings, decor, etc., email me.
When the assistant manager was showing me my patio space, a man and his wife came out of their adjacent patio door. They told me they love it there.
These neighbors had gorgeous plants! Two big hibiscus plants and bird feeders. It was all so pretty. Then the woman next to them came out and greeted me as well.
Everyone was so friendly. I think I’ll like it there. A whole new place to decorate!
