Happily posting my 150th topic: The aparment check list.
The list is work in progress. It will list everything I need to take into account when buying an apartment. (A house is very unlikely in Vienna and leaving Vienna seems more unlikely).
Sometimes, when I ride through the city on my bike, a new citeria pops into my mind, like today. I have been thinking about the list before, but never started writing it down. I get started today and will edit it over time. As you know, I am also known as the princess on the pea. So you might find aspects in the list that sound silly or even ridiculous to you. You can always remove points from the list later on. I know I will have to when things become real. But as a starting point I like to begin as good as possible.
Here it is,
Paula's ultimate apartment check list:
- no supermarket in the basement of the building
... I simply can't stand the used air of vegetables, evaporating through grills in the pavement
... I don't like lorries delivering foods at 5am or 6am and disturbing my sleep
... I don't like the sound of the scanner at the cash desk. You can hear it in your apartment, windows open, when the doors of the supermarkt slide open
- there has to be a window in the bathroom
... I had enough of panicking that the mould might return.
- there must not be a ventilation of a underground garage nowhere near.
... I am really sensitive to annoying scents and the air of a garage is one of the worst.
- there has to be an underground station in no more than 5 min. walking distance
... I don't want to wait for a bus or tram after already having taken the underground. Having to walk more than 5 min is nothing I would enjoy on a daily basis.
- kitchen and living room must be seperatem the kitchen must not be part of the living room
... Mr Paula wants me out of the kitchen when he washes the dishes and I would not want have to leave the living room, just because the kitchen is part of the living room (a floor layout you find often these days, almost became a standard!)
... I like to close the door when the dishwasher is washing
... I like to keep the door closed, when garlic is an ingredient
- there has to be a tub
... showering is no alternative when a tub is in need.
to be continued ....
