House Talk (Again)

I've been obsessing again about having our own home! We went to a viewing over the weekend. We really liked the place! It's not a house actually, but it's a condo but it's inside a small gated community. So we get a compromise - it' still within a "subdivision" where Miya can learn to bike and play outdoors but we have the security of a condo and we won't get flooded. Looking at my checklist before:

  • a backyard/patio - no patio since this is a condo, although they have a small area outside the lobby
  • lots of windows / bay windows R
  • lot area has to be atleast 200 sqm - no lot but the unit is 135sqm
  • breakfast nook - no space for this
  • walk-in closet - just ordinary closet in the master's bedroom
  • atleast 3 bedrooms R
  • one bedroom/extra room on the ground floor   R - technically a yes since it's one floor only haha 
  • two storey house just in case another Ondoy hits   - it's a condo so we won't get flooded
  • no to cramped kitchen  - kitchen is just the right size

That's only 5 out of 9. I say this place gets a passing mark. After contemplating last night, I figured we're in no hurry really. We're waiting for cash to come in actually ahahaha! If this property gets bought before we get our budget, then I guess it's not for us. I keep on praying that the Lord grant us with the right house. Not so big, not so small and not so far please. I guess that's one of the things that prompted me to look at listings again. One morning last week, I woke up rather late around 7am and thought to myself, I don't think I can ever wake up earlier than 6am again. When I lived with my parents, I have to always be up and out of the house by 6am. If I leave a few minutes after 6am, traffic will be horrible already. Then I thought I have to wake up early when Miya starts big school since most schools start at 7am. I don't want to wake up at 4am just to help her prepare for school, I don't want her either to wake up too early to just to go to school. I want us to live relatively near the office and near schools. That's one of the big plus on this property we looked at over the weekend. It's near our offices and near good schools. But wait, if I add location on my checklist then the property will only be 5 out of 10 - that's pasang awa! Oh no hahaha!
