I still want it

Today's rain reminded me of why I am so head over heels passionately in love with that live/work space I wanted. I chose the corner unit, which means I would have both West and North facing windows on every floor. The bedroom was on the 3rd floor, where there is also a floor to ceiling sliding glass door to a balcony. You see I love the rain. I love hard rain, soft rain, misty rain, stormy thundering rain, etc. But I love the rain MORE when I can enjoy it from indoors all cozy and warm and snuggled.

All my life I have enjoyed rain from the inside with windows only facing one direction. So the rain I'm enjoying is very one dimensional. But the combination of windows covering two different North and West walls, meant enjoying the rain from what would feel like all sides. And being on the 3rd floor would mean I could leave all those windows open or uncovered without feeling like anyone could watch me. It would be like being outside but enjoying the outside from the warmth and coziness of my bedroom.

Did I mention the washer/dryer hook ups are in a closed door closet INSIDE the walk in closet? And the walk in closet and bathroom are part of the bedroom. So essentially I could do laundry without ever leaving my room. For the last 9 years I've had to walk out in the rain (which I prefer to enjoy from indoors) and around to a back door down to the basement to do my laundry. The thought of having my very own washer and dryer to use without even leaving my bedroom...makes me thrilled. God, isn't there some way to make that bottom commercial space floor bigger!? If only I could make it bigger, I could make it work.
