house hunting at last

Posted on: 29 June 2011

We checked out three rental places yesterday, the first in Burnaby and the others in Vancouver.

No. 1 was a basement suite, not too bad, spacious enough. I could work with that kind of space. Kevin wasn’t thrilled with the look of the house when we pulled up – kind of old and shabby. The deal-breaker, though, was the landlord’s sixteen-year-old stepson sleeping downstairs every night.

No. 2 was alright, a ground-level suite. Nice living room. Rather lacking in shelving units and storage space. My biggest qualm is that the kitchen is so dinky.

We were quite pleased with no. 3, except … no laundry. I don’t mind not having a dryer or dishwasher, but I’d much rather not use a laundromat or wash clothes by hand. Such a nice place, too, tant pis.
