I did the list of pros and cons and they came out equal. But the biggest con is that the studio will only hold 3 poles. But honestly, the house hunting is just causing too much stress in my life and I miss and love my stress free life. At least if we take this place, I can relax and know I have a wonderful little studio that is bigger than my current one and a swank place to live with room for quicksilver1 or a roommate. Not living alone is a huge plus.
And best of all, I could for the first time ever, have a separate bedroom and office. Right now my bedroom is a sleeping space, a storage space and cluttered office. It's impossible to feel romantic in a space like that. Moving to this place would mean having a bedroom that is just a bedroom. And keeping the business in a separate room (one with a deck and a view). I think that would be a sound and healthy step to separate my work life from the rest of my life. Right now they are just too blurred and that makes me the actual business rather than making me some one who has a separate identity from the business. It would be like reclaiming more of myself and my life.
