OMG! OMG! OMG! We might have found a new place to live!!! :D

So since I’ve been back, I’ve been looking for a new place for us to live. The place we’re in is fine, but it’s a little small, and we’re getting to that point in our lives where we’d like to live somewhere a little nicer. The roadblock has been that we ideally want to stay in the same area. When I say “the same area“, what I mean is the two block by five block area surrounded by Albert on the north, Pender on the south, Willingdon on the east, and MacDonald on the west. We were hoping to find a new-ish townhome or duplex or something like that. This definitely limited our options, and I must say, I was starting to get discouraged. There were countless “brand new” condo units at SFU and near Brentwood, but those places aren’t Burnaby Heights.

However, today, I found it. The place where I REALLY want us to live until we get our own place. I’m so excited!


Here is the craigslist ad:

We have an appointment to meet with the landlady tomorrow evening. I’m SO excited!! I think the unit we’re looking at is floor plan F. It has a dishwasher, a wine fridge, a washer and dryer, and a deck where we can put a grill! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!! The landlady sounds nice and seemed quite happy to hear that it would just be the two of us living in her apartment and not “four people” or “a couple with 3 children”. Did I mention that I’m excited?

So, cross your fingers that she’ll like us and let us live there!

Update by Greg: Kat’s looking at it tomorrow night while I’m teaching.  My instructions to her: “I don’t care if it smells like cheese, I want to live there.”

Update by Kat: I saw it. I loved it. I put a deposit down!!!! 🙂 We will be living at the Tramonto in August! 😀 Oh, and I was initially wrong. The unit is floor plan C, which means that it’s on the north side of the building, and therefore quite quiet. The deck also has gas plumbing for a grill. 😀

    Caffe Artegiano downstairs? You’re living the yuppy dream!

    That place looks so.. yuppy! And a wine fridge? I want to live there too! 🙂

    OK, so I don’t get it Greg… I thought cheese smell was a *feature*?

    Good to know you are going in there with an objective view 😉

    Yeah, I’m ready to be yuppified. Living in a log cabin for two years was enough. It was good, but I’m ready for nicely painted drywall now! 🙂

    If Greg has jinxed us, and the place really does smell like cheese, I’m going to be really pissed.

    Sweet! That building looks so nice. Often when we drive by it I point out to Sean that it would be lovely to live there. I’m a little envious 😉

    You’re going to have to get a better car now. There’s no way you can live there and drive your old car. 🙂

    Congrats on the new place. It looks beautiful.
