apartments hooray!

okay so, this post is mostly for me and kevin's benefit, and then possibly for someone else's benefit as well IF YOU ARE EXTRA AWESOME. you see, we have had a few people mention being possibly maybe interested in living with us next year, so i have been looking at 2 and/or 3 bedroom places. but since none of those 3rd people are as yet definite, we are still having an open casting call for the leading role of third roommate. bring it.

anyway though, here is what we've seen so far, in order of whatever..
as far as i can tell, everywhere in the universe wants 1 month's rent as security deposit. and everyone seems fairly accomodating about subletting
i am stupid at taking pictures, and managed to only get like half of each room. so assume everything is way bigger than it looks. oh speaking of which, i am not too concerned with bedroom size as long as it's not too absurdly small. i have a lot of crap but most of it can be stored easily enough (hence most of it living in boxes), so if there are different sized rooms, i'm fine with the littler one

$825/mo. i forget what's included in this one
2 smaller bedrooms. i am pretty sure there was a 3rd room that was sorta bedroom size, but this is the 3rd place i saw in a row so i may be getting them muddled. it's easy enough to call and find out though
free washer/dryer in apt
phone/internet hookups all over the damn place
fridge, stove, dishwasher
storage in basement
parkign spots
i forgot to take pics of this one
oh yeah, and this place also contained an amazing closet that, when you open it, inside there is A STAIRCASE that goes up into the wall and vanishes. sadly this won't be there for much longer because the place is being remodeled.

[glen, pg 4]
161 littleworth rd (rt 9, off 155)
2 bedrooms, in a house with other renters. they all seem like cool kids
the smaller bedroom is $350/mo, bigger one is $425
everyone seems to play instruments, so there will be much rocking out. i'm sure they'll let you use their drum kit
bus stop down the street or something
heat included. utilities are split between 6 people so won't be too huge
free washer/dryer
normal kitchen
big pretty backyard, with a firepit
it's definitley a 'college' house. everything is kinda ramshackle and glued together, but charmingly so.
a beagle. small and cute, but pretty insane
plenty of parking and storage
they want the lease to start with august, but said if we are not moved in for most of the month we'll get it half off
note the xmas lights strung up everywhere, and the fun painted chair in the kitchen

14 tuttle rd, in lee (nearish that pizza/sub shop)
2 good-size bedrooms, each $425/mo. i think everything but phone/internet is included
i believe there's a busstop within walking distance
it's in a house with an old man and woman, their lazy pretty cat, and another guy renting a room. we get our own floor, with our 2 rooms and a bathroom, and share the kitchen and whatnot with others
plenty of parking
GORGEOUS property. big lawn and a field and two barns (i did not inquire what it is he actually needs two barns for, but hopefully they're full of robots. the field is to grow robot fuel)
the lease would be for the schoolyear. i forgot to ask about subletting, and also forgot to take pictures
