We have a home!

Real estate week continues here on the blog with the happy news that we have found a new place to live. Wahoo, for a bit I was worried we might have to move into the pothole at the end of our street.

While it is quite spacious, I don’t think the pothole would have worked for us

It was not easy finding a good place to live that worked for both human and dog, but I think we did a good job. The new spot is a walk-up which is smaller than our current place, but it has an updated kitchen and an in-unit washer/dryer which we currently lack. Sadly, there is no fireplace, but “tis’ better to have loved and lost,” I guess.

I’m hoping to mitigate the loss of the fireplace by positioning one of the couches in front of these windows. The new apartment gets a lot more light than our current one

And that means plenty of extra sun for this guy to work on his tan

I don’t have any good photos of the apartment interior, but those will be plentiful in short order.  In less than a month we’ll be all moved in.  The new spot is not far from our current place so luckily we won’t have to give up our favorite haunts. But there will be plenty of new places to see, new people to meet and new friends to make. Eko checking if the locals needed an extra player for basketball

Another nice perk of our place is that we have a shared back patio that’s fenced in. You can’t see in this photo, but behind Eko and down the side is a nice little area where he’ll be able to hang out off-leash 

The good news is that we have a home. The bad news is that I have to start packing. It’s times like these I wish Eko had opposable thumbs.

Congratulations, that is such great news. It sounds like it is going to be wonderful, and somewhere for off-leash time for Eko is such a bonus. Though, to be fair, if the pothole was staring to look like a good option then ANYTHING else was a winner!

I go away for a week and you have solved your where to live problems – Good job!!
Great opportunity to get rid of the accumulations that we tend to somehow – well, accumulate 🙂 And I’m guessing that wherever Eko sees you hang your hat – that will be his home.

At least the stress of the hunt is over. I’m sure you will settle in and love your new place just find. Remember to buy a big pack of cheap paper towels to pack your dishes, glasses and other kitchen fragile items in. Doing that you don’t need to wash when you get to the new place as they will still be clean (not the case if using newspaper) and you will have a box of paper towels to use for cleaning up messes for many months.
