Yesterday I put down the deposit for my new loft! I am in love with it and cannot wait to move in February. It is 513 SF with hard wood floors and wood rafters. There is a storage loft above the kitchen/bath/closet area. Beautiful windows and brick wall. Now it’s time to come up with ideas for what to do with space! My cats are going to have a hayday with the upper loft area so definitely need to build something for them to be able to get up there. Going to design some sort of bed hideaway or possibly a murphy bed. Because the windows are too high for my dog too look out of, I am thinking of designing some sort of raised platform to stow away my bed under. This would allow me to continue to have the floor space but would also hide my bed and raise my floor for him! Wish I could do some permanent upgrades to the space but unfortunately I don’t believe I will be able to. So have to think in terms of being able to take everything down when I move out, which hopefully won’t be for a few years! I’ll have more pictures to come later, just wanted to share my apartment hunting update. Now all I have to do is get rid of my current apartment in 60 days or I’ll be in trouble paying two rents for a month or so, since I am shortening my current lease. Definitely looking forward to the $375 a month savings in rent compared to my current apartment. Should be an interesting two months! I’ll keep y’all updated on my design ideas!
