I am still looking for a 2 bedroom as that would be the most ideal, but 2 bedrooms around me go up in price by quite a bit (over $1,000 not including utilites.. and we are looking to stay under or at the $1,000 mark)
I'm not sure if the kitchen/living room has its own space. I have yet to call. BUT there is this one apartment. bedroom is 14 x 17 has a living room dining room kitchen a few closets and 1 bath. But that doesn't include utilites and I'm not sure if they'll be so willing to accept Chief (as most places around me are dog friendly up until a certain weight.. one that Chief outweighs by a lot)
Don't worry jenny, Baby will have a bassinet and a crib. only time it will sleep in the bed is to take a nap with me.
Regal, currently hubby and I are living in maybe a 10x11 room (it has a queen size bed, a 4x2 dresser.. i think, 1 nighttable, and a dog crate and there is no room for anything else.. in our other room its about a 5x10 ? room.. in there we have the ferret cages, my desk, air purifier, dog bowls, dog food, ferret food, garbage can and a 3 drawer thing (one of those plastic things) and there is zero room for anything else. We have made due with that for going on 3 years, and I feel if we had a bedroom the size of both of those rooms combined, but a kitchen, living room and any thing else, we'd be quite happy for a while, but I do understand what you are saying.
