This is the living room photo posted in the original ad on Craigslist that made me immediately fall in love.
Another photo from the ad. This is literally the entire kitchen.
Moving in, autumn 2013.
The best thing about the kitchen are all the open shelves.
Shelves, sink, and minimal counter space.
The bedroom is basically the mirror image of the living room.
Built-in shelves in bedroom between kitchen and bathroom.
Bookcase in the bedroom. (Clearly I rearrange my stuff constantly since that head is in all these pictures, but this is where she ended up.)
Living room at Christmas time, 2015.
A rough layout of the apartment:
I drew this about 30 minutes, so it is in no way to scale, but you get the basic idea. As you can see, the living room and bedroom are windows on two walls each, which I loved and was my favorite part of the apartment. However, the major issues are the tiny kitchen, only one closet, a small stand-up shower in the bathroom and no bath tub, and that the kitchen is off the bedroom, not the living room. There were other issues, but those were the things I most disliked about the apartment.
