Husetkrigen

This week has been a busy one. I’m still at my parents’ house in the UK, but I’ve begun the job search and I have also started applying for volunteering opportunities to give me something to do when i first move over to the beautiful country that is Sweden.

Emil, however, has been looking at our two housing options: a house in the suburbs, or a flat in the centre of the city. This afternoon he sent me video and photos of each of the options.

The House
Pros

-The house belongs to Emil’s Parents. As such, we know the landlords well
-It’s massive
-It’s pretty, bright and airy
-It’s ridiculously cheap
-It’s nice and quiet
-It’s close to some of Emil’s awesome family members who I like chatting to.
-Plenty of room for a faerie lab and no need to worry about making too much noise

 Cons
-It’s not quite finished so we shall probably have people coming and going relatively regularly
-One of the rooms will need to be used by Emil’s parents as a storeroom
-Bigger = more cleaning
-It’s in the suburbs with less transport links

The Flat
Pros
-It’s in the city
-It’s nice
-Fantastic transport links (very close to a tram-station)
-Has a 2m x 2m clutterroom in basement to store any… clutter

Cons
-Bedroom is possibly too small for a double bed (deal-breaker)
-Designed for only one person to live there
-Not as airy
-More expensive
-It’s in the city and thus likely to get loud
-No escape from each other within house if irritated!
-Not as much space for a fairy-lab
-Have to be quiet
-Electricity not included in price

 

As one might be able to tell, I’m more in favour of the house at this precise moment. The Emil is more in favour of the flat. This is going to be interesting!
