Apartment Ahoy!

:note: Duran Duran – “Hungry Like the Wolf”

We got an apartment! :highfive:

It’s a 1bd for $525 (sounds horrible, I know, but in downtown Portland $525 is CHEAP for a 1bd) and it’s in the same neighborhood as we are now.

One wall is this interesting reddish-purple color. Daniel likes it; I’m not crazy about it but it isn’t awful. It’s more or less this color:

Something about the color makes me dread it. But, we can think about painting it over next time.

The bedroom has these funky little French doors with glass window thingys in place of a normal door. Meaning, each little French door is half the width of a normal sized door. Funky, I know. But, we’re going to replace them with a vinyl replacement window installation or an egress window installation with the help of window dealers along with the other windows in the house.

The kitchen is big and is laid out well. There are pipes visible in the bathroom and the kitchen, but nothing too hideous. It’s nothing a plumber can’t fix. We could put Christmas lights on them or something. It is carpeted, not hardwood floors, but whatever… That was something I could live without.

We’re holding it for about two weeks and then we’ll start moving in. Hopefully, we can find movers who are near the area so we can get a better price. Hurray!
