My "Balcony Dreams"

July 22nd, 2006 at 10:10 pm

Someday I am going to have an apartment with a balcony.

I want one so bad that I can't stand it but for now, I'll just have to keep dreaming ... saving and planning for a move to one.

There are none that I can think of in our town so I'd have to relocate about 25-30 miles from where I'm at now.

Can't do that for awhile because I know it'd really upset my granddaughter [she's 11 now];

however - in a few years [maybe 5 or so?], she's going to be 16 and I'm sure I won't be as important then.

Or atleast where I live won't be 'cuz when she's that age, 25-30 miles won't seem like such a long ways to her.

The one is in Franklin and I love the apartments down there 'cuz I got to see one about 4 years ago.

One problem there though is that I would have to pay utilities 'cuz they're not included in the rent.

Well - maybe not all the utilities 'cuz I think all I'd have to pay is rent, cable and electric,

because if I remember right, it's an all electric apartment.

Still, it was soooo nice with a beautiful balcony!! Smile

The other balcony apartment is in a hi-rise in Meadville and the utilities there are all included,

but - the apartments I don't think are quite as nice plus the balconies are smaller if I remember right.

Will blog later about the disadvantages and advantages of each one and other things I think of as well.

    do what makes you happy, then try and save at that point, but don't get in over your head...good luck!!

    Good for you...and yep, it'll be exciting for your granddaughter five years from now, because she'll have a good reason to use the car!

    I too dream of owning a house some day.

    Sure, it may not seem like a big deal to some, but my ambitious goal is to save enough to pay up front.

    I doubt that'll be possible, but a little ambition never hurt anyone. Big Grin
    More realistically, I will definitely save up enough to avoid PMI.

    It may be weird for a straight guy to think this way, but I love houses. I don't mean just having a roof over my head somewhere. I mean architectural interests, interior decorating, lighting designs, and so forth. I want a place I can call home, but I also want it to look aesthetically pleasing.
