The deadline of 1 May is more firm now since I'm looking at renting a place with rhonan. My situation might be flexible but his certainly isn't. With the two of us sharing, we can get actually get a decent house rental rather than a very nice apartment. There are much fewer houses out there for rent than apartments. This should be rather obvious but it was still startling. Hit a number of search engines and found only six; five of those were from craigslist. I used the following search criteria and eliminated the ones that sucked in terms of bus lines and those where they wanted much too much for what they were offering:
- in Seattle
- $1,200 – $2,000
- 4+ bedrooms
- allows cats, allows dogs
I realized while working on the bathroom sink that probably the hardest adjustment to renting a place will be not doing all my own repairs. It's going to be weird.
Oh, and really, I will answer all the comments people have made recently and and least some of the comments that are older. I know that I'm busy but I also want to be able to respond. (Yes, I know I don't -have- to. I -want- to. No onus given from anyone; no onus accepted.)
