Housing Adventures

Tonight after work I’m going to look at a 1,200 sq. ft. studio apartment in Wesley Chapel. It’s on the same property as the owner’s regular house, but there appears to be about an acre of land around it.

The pros: It’s at the top end of my price range, but all utilities are included, so the cost works out pretty cheap. Also, it’s one large, open room, which means I can set up the space for studio work pretty easily. It will also put me a lot closer to Alex & Nel’s house.

The cons: If I get this place, it will extend my drive from 15 minutes one-way to work to 50 minutes one-way. This also equates to spending more on gasoline. It also takes me away from South Tampa, which kinda sucks a bit as I really like the area.

Right now I’m living with all my stuff in storage, so it’s difficult. Even though I have a bit of a reprieve with the house not selling, I can’t continue to live like this. Hell, I can’t even cook anything as all my kitchen stuff is in storage. That, and the fact the studio is taken apart makes for a very un-homey feel to the place. So, I need to get out soon.
