The complex is call Brook Hill Apartments. I've been in contact with a few people that are living out there now and they all love it. Plus is 1.3miles away from Kyle's campus, and there are about 6 or 7 other LDS couples that live there that also attend the Dental School. Perks all the way around...
I was stressing (and still might be a little bit) about not physically seeing it before we made a decision, but I figured I can live anywhere for a year. Plus, there are more perks to it than negatives. Although I really do feel like I'm making some good compromises. Like only getting a 2 bedroom instead of a 3 bedroom, and not seeing it before hand. But oh well, you've got to do what you have to do. But now that we have the apartment, my dilemma is where to put my office?? In a 3 bedroom I'd have a whole separate room that I could work from home in. But I'm trying to figure out where to do it in this apartment.
I would LOVE some ideas and suggestions - I REALLY DON'T want my work space to be out in the open so everyone who comes over can see it. Unless I could somehow separate it from the rest of the room somehow (room dividers?? tacky??)
So I went ahead and put it where I thought it might work the best - but can anyone tell me if they've had issues with an office in their bedroom - both Kyle and I don't want it to feel cluttered. Also, my kitchen table can fit in the kitchen so I can convert the dining room space to an office if need be.
Suggestions??? Ideas??? I know lots of people have way better ideas than I do, so help me!!
