Thursday Thirteen #11: Our New Home



Thirteen things I love about our NEW [rented] HOME

  1. It's a 3 bedroom condo-townhouse
  2. with a big unfinished basement
  3. and a one-car garage
  4. All windows have blinds
  5. It is close to the airport [where hubby works]
  6. And close to the town center [mall - where I plan to work, hopefully, soon...]
  7. It comes with 5 appliances [Fridge, stove, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer] -- and all brand new!!!
  8. It has a built-in fireplace [not the traditional fireplace, so no mess]
  9. My kitchen has lots of built-in cabinets
  10. And I have a big kitchen counter too [yey]
  11. There's also a walk-out patio where we can have our BBQ in the summer
  12. Neighborhood is peaceful and very quiet
  13. Best of all, we don't have to shovel [the condo management will handle this]

The house looks beautiful. The first house I ever owned was a 3 bedroom Townhouse and I loved it. I miss having all the counter space now that I've moved.

Tug said...

kaberns said...

Hi Jo,
You've got a really nice home. I'm sure you'll enjoy decorating it for the holidays. The best part is not having to shovel snow :-)
Take care!

It looks like a very nice home. It's good that you have a patio where you can have BBQ or just a place where you can lounge and enjoy the afternoon.

I'm sure you're excited to decorate your new home. Have fun!

JO said...

Hi Leah,
Thanks! Still got a few more boxes to unpack.

Hi Vanessa,
I made sure that the condo mgmt is doing the shoveling before we sign the lease.

Hi Faye,
I've lived in 2 apartments before this, and all appliances are old tapos usually fridge and stove lang ang kasama. Kaya super happy talaga ako sa 5 appliances ko.

JO said...

Hi Toni,
Sarap talaga pag bago lahat... this condo-townhouse is only 3 years old.

Hi Joy,
Thanks!

Hi Lam,
Thanks!

Hi Kaberns,
We've got our Christmas tree set up last night.

Hi Rach,
The only thing missing is a balcony. But the patio will do.

Raquel said...

Hi Jo, yay, late na ako dito...

Super ganda ng new home. Ang linis linis pa, wow! Meron pang 5 appliances, all are brand new din. Di ko nalang i-mention lahat, kase I am echoeng na eh. Basta super ganda talaga and the best of all, everythings are convinient.

I am happy for you Jo...good luck nalang kay hubby at sa inyong lahat.

Hi Irene,
Oh yes, I made sure I don't have to shovel!

Hi KaDyo,
Location is very convenient talaga.

Hi Iskoo,
I'm sure mas maganda pa dito ang magiging bahay mo!

JO said...

Hi Evi,
If only I got the budget to decorate the whole house I would, but for now, one room at a time.

Hi Gracita, Mitch and Janiin,
Thanks a lot!

Ann said...

Sulit naman pala yung pagod sa paglilipat. Sana kami rin makapaglipat na pero sana hindi na rito, sa ibang bansa naman...hehehe.

Mahal siguro ang rent dyan kasi semi-furnished na sya.

cruise said...

my brother and his family will be moving to canada, sana makakuha dins ila ng ganyang kagandang bahay :)

Bugsy said...

Happy new home, JO! May your new home be always filled with love and joy.

P.S> I like the patio best because I always enjoy barbecue parties, be it with family or with friends.

JO said...

Hi Ann,
Apartments here comes with 2 appliances - fridge and stove... If you rent Condos/townhouses/houses, it usually comes with 5 appliances.

Hi Cruise,
If they got a bigger budget for rent, then they can easily find something like this. Goodluck to them! Tell them to try Calgary.

Hi Bugsy,
Hubby is also looking forward to BBQ time...

fennymun said...

What a lovely and spacious home! Enjoy your time decorating it with warmth and love!

JO said...

Hi Fenny,
If only I have unlimited funds to decorate, I would! But for now, just the basic essentials will do.

Junnie said...

Dream house indeed! Sarap mag decorate diyan!

JO said...

Hi Junnie,
Masarap mag decorate kung "unlimited" ang funds ko for shopping... kaso hindi eh. Besides I need the expertise of your wife to make it look like your homey home!

Enjoy your trip!
