Home Sweet Home

We are making progress getting the apartment set up and I figured it was about time to post some pictures. The elevator opens into our apartment, there are only two apartments on each floor on opposite sides of the elevator.
As you turn the corner and go through the front door you see the dining room at the end of the entryway with the balcony on the other side of the glass
To the left of the dining room is the living room, basically all one open room. We watch TV here and I spend a lot of time on my computer and looking out the window. This is the view of the living room from the kitchen.

The kitchen opens up to the living room and has glass sliding doors if you want to close it off, but we haven't ever done that. I suppose if you had a maid and wanted them to be cooking in the kitchen while you were entertaining it would be useful, but it makes the place seem even smaller.

Another view of the kitchen with the storage room/bomb shelter/maid's quarters at the end. The laundry room is around the corner on the left, not shown in this photo

Across from the kitchen is the master bedroom and bathroom. We also have a small balcony off our bedroom that is connected to the one off the living room.

Note the bathtub inside the shower area, I haven't tried the tub out yet, sort of an odd, enclosed feeling.

Down the hall are the guest bedroom and the office with a sofa bed and the guest bathroom. Plenty of room for visitors, just don't all cram into the bathroom at once.

So that is our new home. We brought some of the furnishings and all of the pictures from Los Gatos, but a lot of the furniture is from craigslist, eBay and IKEA; all great places to shop for things here. With the island being so small and having a car that has cargo space we've been able to take advantage of what is available. We still have patio furniture left to figure out, but we've spent less time out there than we expected as May and June are the hottest months and they have been having record heat. It's great having A/C!
