not so sure anymore

I am feeling uneasy about the $3,000 work/live space. Because of the 12 1/2 foot ceilings, I will have to pay about around $2000 to $3000 for custom poles (actual price depends on what a contractor will charge me to put them up). There are also 5 10 foot high windows that will need custom light blocking curtains made. I can only guess that might cost $1000 or twice that. And I will need to put in custom flooring, most likely something soft like a mat foam of some kind. Maybe the move in will cost about $5000 or more. And that's only a two year lease. I can afford it, sort of. Just because I have the money doesn't mean I have it to blow on something I will only use for 2 years. That seems like an incredible waste of $5,000. And I'm not comfortabel asking for a 3 year lease because that would prevent me from being able to buy a house in a couple years while the housing values are down (house values may only tank for another year or two before they start to climb again).

On the other hand, I will have a private floor of my own (even if I have a roommate) with a bedroom, an office, a little storage and a private deck with this view:
