I was trying to describe the new apartment layout to my mom and told her it would just be a lot easier to post a link to the floor plan. So here you go.
The bedroom windows face east, the living and dining room windows face west. We have a fireplace in the living room but not one in the master bedroom. In fact, I wish it were the other way around because I think that angled fireplace complicates the living room floor plan. Oh well.
We are on the second floor; our one car garage is underneath the second bedroom. So the entrance leads to a small, first floor foyer and then directly up the stairs. The balcony is off the living room and has french doors that lead into the living room. It's covered but because it faces west, we should get enough light for our potted herbs and possibly a tomato plant as well. I'd also like to have a couple of pots with flowers, flowers that can take sunlight.
Back to packing, and I'll update more later.
