    Default Moving

    Well, here in the next couple of weeks, I will be moving once again.

    The trailer that I helped remodel is being moved so the Landlord can build a house over here and move his Mom (Who it sounds like is starting to suffer from the early stages of Alzheimer's) and Step-Dad in next door.

    I was pretty nervous about it at first, because there are two things that I hate in life. #1 is looking for a job, and #2 is trying to find a house to rent. This time was especially difficult, because it is the first time I've looked for a house that I've had animals, and most people renting out houses aren't real fond of pets.

    Well, I contacted some old friends who just happened to have a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house for rent for $350 a month. They told me that the outside is pretty crappy looking, but the inside is nice. So last week after work, I decide to drive over to this little town and take a look. I drive by the house and think to myself, "No fucking way!" Then I remembered that she said that it was very nice on the inside, so I drove around the block and pulled up to take a look through the windows.

    Unbelievable! It is absolutely gorgeous inside! Yesterday I went down and walked through the house with the owner. It has been completely redone even to the point of having a brand new central heat and air unit being installed. There are still a few minor things still needing to be done, but the house is very nice. The Landlord is also planning on putting siding on the house, so it will look much better once he gets that done.

    So 3 bedrooms, and 2 baths for $350 a month? Hell yeah!

    Plus it will put some miles between me and my ex. Bonus!

    Damn, $350 a month here would get you a single wide mobile home that may or may not have a leaky roof!

    yeah no kidding...350 a month doesn't even get you an efficiency around here. That's barely a car payment for most people!

    $350 here would get you the cupboard under the stairs, which you would have to share with brooms, mops and perhaps a squatting rodent or two.

    Congrats Viking.

    Damn....and I thought *I* lucked out.

    I think $350 out here might get you a door, and maybe the knob too if the owner likes your ass.

    $350/mo. is about 1/4 of the cost of a tiny studio apartment here in SF.

    And we still have our house in Richmond Va which I refer to as a crack house (it looks awful from the outside) but inside we redid everything, granite, new appliances, tile, redid the hardwood floors.

    But we get $1050 mo for it... gotta make sure no one messes up my new stuff!

    Glad you found such a great deal!
