Housing Update

>> Monday, November 06, 2006

(Where the house will be built. The back will face that mountain/canyon.)

The apartment/condo was 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths.
It was older.
(I'm trying not to be a princess.)
Definitely not worth $1200 anywhere but in Cabo where there is a housing shortage.

Mi hermana and I checked it out. I was/am looking at it with an open mind.

We left there and then went to check out a little community/subdivision that is in the process of being built. It's one of those quaint little, cute neighborhoods were there are several styles of homes - and everyone picks the one they like. We checked out the models - and they're great!

My sister bought one.

Yup. She bought one. (Or pardon, is in the process of buying one.)

It's a 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath home that has both an ocean (slight) and mountain/canyon (awesome) view. It'll be finished being built in April, but will need slightly more work after that. (You know, like a kitchen, bathroom, etc.)

C. and I will then rent it from my sister. ;-)

SO! We have a LONG TERM plan! It's just during the interim that we must find a place to stay - just somewhere for like 6 mos. or so. SO, this is a super-great thing. My sister builds equity, etc. - we have a place to live!

My brother is also thinking of buying a 3-bedroom place up the road. Awesome.

So, as of right now - this is great news! VERY cool.

:-)

Looks like we'll be staying in Cabo for a little while...

(Outside of the house. There are no garages here, really. See that little cover to the left of the front window? On the side of the house? That's where the washer and dryer go...outside of the house. Crazy different. I love Mexico.)

I love how the bathtubs almost look like swimming pools in the pictures. You and Craig will take the room with the twin beds, right? Pretend like your Ozzie and Harriett back in the 50's.

What great news!!! I am so happy this will work out for everyone!!! How nice to have your family with you as you & C. make the move and adjust to the change!

HAHA - washer and dryer outside, that is awesome!!!

I know, isn't this great?!

Yes, Linds - we'll be doing the double beds. :-)

No, my sister and C. are both banking on the fact that that will be "the baby's" room. :-)

(I still can't believe I'm living in Mexcio. One day at a time...)
