Congrats at owning your own home! That’s something I hope to do one day! I know what you mean about space. I live in a tiny 700 sq foot apt. While it’s just me & my two tiny birds it’s still not as large as I would like. Then dealing with the noise of the neighbors. Apartment living is just not for me. I’ve been here a little over 3 years. I’m considering finding a new place to rent in about 9 months or so when my lease is up.
