House Hunting

August 7, 2012

entry

The Mister and I have been searching for a house/apartment/unit for the past six months and boy is it a frustrating, long and slow process! You could say we are just like Goldilocks when it comes to inspections – it’s too small, I don’t like the street/suburb, the outside is ugly, it’s too expensive, there’s no parking, it’s made of asbestos, there are too many neighbours close by – we mostly whinge about them being too small or too expensive.

We are also having a hard time deciding whether we want an apartment, unit or house. I think we have pretty much ruled out units, we would put up with an apartment if it was in a small block and not too small/ugly on the outside and we would really love a house but probably can’t afford it. So I guess that leaves us no choice but to go for an apartment.

Unfortunately a lot of apartments in Perth are in these awful beige-brick, ten-plus-storey buildings which really couldn’t feel like home for us so the waiting game continues until the perfect place comes up. In the meantime I have been pinning house designs and decor and dreaming about living in a gorgeous character home with high ceilings and wood floorboards. Here are some of my latest inspirations:

      It sure is! It should all be rewarding in the end I suppose. 🙂
