    Woohoo! I'm moving into a new one-bedroom apartment! Granite countertops, hardwood floors, lots of storage space, a garage parking spot, and more! MINE, ALL MINE! Muhahahahah!

    Wow! Sounds wonderful, you must be making some big $$$ for a place like that in California. :bugeye:

    I want granite countertops. :cry:

    Does it have a broadband internet connection? A place to put your PC, printer, router, etc?

    Well done Warren ... enjoy! :smile:

    Actually it's pretty reasonable! $1045 a month, and only 15 minutes from SF. There's a ferry within walking distance too, so I won't even have to find parking in the city anymore!

    :bugeye: That's as much as my monthly mortgage payment. But I live in a cow pasture. :frown:

    That's incredible. Now I'm really jealous. Need a roommate? :tongue2:

    Oh, it's extremely good price for this area. A nice (read: not crappy) one-bedroom in the city itself will run you $1400-1600, so this is a STEAL. Really. I know it sounds nuts, but it is.

    This is my new home:

    Not yet :tongue2: but I might have to take it up. I do, however, fly -- and Oakland airport is only about 10 minutes away! :biggrin:

    Sounds like a good place to bring chicks over.

    Well, my girlfriend plans to move in sometime in early 2005, so I suppose you're on the right track, Chrono. ;)

    nice chroot! i'll be in downtown san fran next month! of course, we may end up arguing over the validity of astrology should we decide to go out for coffee...i heard the rent is pretty high in that area-portland is not much further behind when you live downtown.

    Wow, sounds fantastic! Though, I'm always shocked by prices of apartments on the coasts! Your rent is MORE than my monthly mortgage payment! Then again, I don't have granite countertops (I really would like them...or actually, anything would be better than the light blue laminate countertops I have :yuck:).

    How about dark blue laminate countertops?

    Actually, yes, even that would be better. My cabinets are very light colored, so the kitchen needs some dark countertops for a bit more punch (and so you can't see the coffee stains around the coffee-maker.)

    Do you need to do a lot of fixing/redecorating?

    chroot, I'm so jealous! My rent-controlled building down here in La-La land just sold to a new owner so we may get the boot soon. Hope we can find nice new affordable, cat-friendly digs! That's very cool. Good for you!

    This makes me want to get my own place. 20 and still living with parents doesn't sound very well. Of course, I like to think of it from an economic point of view. More money for me.
