That view is beyond worth it though. Can't say i'm a fan of either bathroom though.

Good eye. My wife wanted sunshine so PH it was.

Crazy day ... left the old place for the last time. Pretty torn up about it.

After venturing out of the MC subforum a few days ago, this is the only thread that I've been through page by page. I don't what to say beyond just wow, some of your homes are absolutely beautiful, and just amazing. I really want to thank you for posting them as they've given me some ideals for the little apartment my wife and I have.

To contribute to this thread, my humble abode. It's not very large, tiny actually since we live in Los Angeles, at 800 square feet, a single bedroom apartment. We were considering moving, but decided to stay since the rent was less than $1,000 which is extremely cheap, we each bought new cars since hers was breaking down and I wanted something different, and most importantly, we are having a baby, our first and due in August, so we really can't move. Also, this was the first real place we lived together in after we got married out of college, and it was the first step of freedom and indepence we both had so I guess there's a bit of young pride in here too. A lot of memories, but that's too much emtional shit, here are the pictures:

2 car spots, guess which one my wife takes, and than leaves me? She's 3 cars over and has a roof over her car.


Entrance with vallet table and shoes:


Living room:


The couch and dining area, double wide windows so we get a lot of light which is nice:


The computer/personal office space:


Bedroom. We just got a new mattress and the old one is shown here. When that's gone, we are putting the baby crib there.



Thanks for looking!

I swear I saw that same liquor cabinet set up in one of... impolyt_one's (?) images. I had to go back to see that this was Raralith. Hey, maybe it was Raralith, just posting in another thread.

You've got way too many stuffed animals. Also, too much shit in general.

Note to the architect: please include closets in future apartment plans.

I think I quoted Raralith's pic in a reply... my bottle collection is small.
My bottle collection looks like this, and I added another tray's worth of bottle since:


disbanding the sauce collection though, because it looks like I am moving to japon soon and I am guessing our new digs will be small. Maybe a bit bigger than now, which is f'ing tiny, but it's Japan, so not big enough. I'm selling a bunch of stuff and am going with a single suitcase.

SF Cribs: the places where SF stores their burgeoning bottle collections. Hunstman has the finest one I've seen. But it probably isn't a good idea to have a bigger bottle collection than a kitchen.

Couple hundred square feet more than my garden apartment that also comes to less than $1000 (I pay for heat in the winter which pushes it close to 1000 but a good deal less when it warms up)...maybe I should look for a better deal.

At least I have a closet and hardwood

My wife wanted to be a bartender, and I used to be half drunk more than half the time. My wild days are over though so it mainly collects dust, or are raided by our friends.

Good luck in Japan! I have a friend living there and his apartment is tiny, but they make it work. Amazing nightlife though, I think he only uses the space to sleep, shower, shave, and store shit.

Unfortunately, I don't know how to block off this area so more than likely... it'll all have to go.

It's true, I'll admit it. My wife grew up with a stuffed animal collection so I've been weening her off since. As for too much shit in general, I still need to get rid of that second sofa, and throw a play pen in there. It's going to be really too much shit after we get our kid stuff More than likely though, we'll give away a lot of stuff and try to have a clear and open space.

The only additional expenses are electricity and gas so we can take as many showers in the dark as we like! Electricity wise, it's pretty much $50/month and we rarely use AC since we are used to the heat and throw on more clothing when it's cold. I never understand hardwood flooring either as when I was young my mother removed her carpet and put in hardwood flooring at home. It's easier tp clean but I hate wearing slippers so my feet get so damned cold!

Closets are probably the biggest problem in apartments, this one especially. We've got a tiny coat closet (filled), and a small storage area which is maybe 8H X 5W X 3 deep which is practically full. Does anyone have any ideas on good methods of storing in a small space? This apartment fits in some of your gaurages!

Congratulations on the baby. How long do you plan to stay there after it's born?

1K a month is nice for LA.
