Current Diggs

One thing I regret not doing during life was taking lots of pictures of the places where I once lived. You don't really think about it much while you are living at the place, nor when you are moving away, but I've found that I regret not having something to remember where I once was. I've lived in two apartments above a store, a variety of 1970's styled apartments while in university, a mobile home, a small house, an 1,125sf 2BR condo, a 1,450sf 2 BR townhouse-condo, a 550sf 1BR apartment-condo and I currently live in another 550sf 1 BR apartment-condo. The first 1BR condo was in downtown Vancouver, right downtown, and it was brutally expensive. They were renting for $1,125/mo when I was there (and now are $1,400-$1,600/mo), so I moved to the outskirts of the city where I was able to find a similarly sized place for $625/mo.

I like this place. It is finished nicely and it is all the space I need. That's what I find about small places - the finishing is what makes it comfortable to live in. In a small place, you can afford to go a little higher in quality per square foot, and make a really nice place. This, and the place I lived in when in downtown Vancouver, are the smallest two places I have ever lived in. After living in the first place, I decided that I really didn't need anything more, and in fact, was grateful the place was so easy to maintain.

Here's where it all takes place, folks!

What is lacking in this place is decent storage. There is only a small hall closet by the door, and then a walk-thru closet in the bedroom.

I planted a balcony garden last spring.

Here's how they looked in the summer:

I have very little desire to have a much bigger place than this. A second bedroom would be nice, but I would probably set it up as an office with a bed to the side for guests. I often pace around this place and figure that it would make a good cottage design as well.

One thing I would like is to get onto my own piece of land, and out of apartments and condos. But, I really don't want a big home. I want a garden and a dog, and maybe even some goats and chickens. I have the resources to do something, but also, I feel real-estate is way over-priced. If our governments keep printing money like toilet paper, there will come a day when they must raise interest rates in order to convince people to hold their currency, and when that happens, I suspect that real-estate prices are going to plummet. I have the resources set aside to take advantage of such a situation, so, I am waiting... and plotting... and waiting.
