It's done.

We signed the contract to buy our new apartment this morning, meaning we are moving in after 15 February, probably sometimes in March, because I want the place to be fully equipped and furnitured and all when we make the move. We're "doubling" the size of the place we are in now and I think we'll have plenty of space to develop our... egos. Following months will show how financially floored we're going to be, until we adjust to the new setting, but I think we won't notice it much. Trust me, there'll be much about this apartment in the following months.

Well, pardon me, but I couldn't be happier! :)

And since there are no pics from me (yet), I'll just show you some tiny bits and pieces from investor's webpage.

By the Stream/Creek - It's a totally new neighbourhood, just on the outskirts of the city, in the middle of green... Outskirts of the city in Ljubljana means I'll be 15 minutes away from work - in the city centre. Painful, eh? :)


Top view of our new little kingdom. Yes, a room for guests... :)


It's "our" house from behind. Green areas are still being finished. First should move in after 15 Dec.

Looks nice. Are you moving closer to work or farther away?

A bit farther away, but it's a part of the city that's much quieter. Now I live 7 minutes away from work (by bus). :)

wow, that's super cool! I'm excited for you and the husband. It looks really pretty and comfortable.

as a recent homeowner (I bought my house a year and a half ago), I'm just beginning to adjust financially. It was tough, but honey, it's all worth it.

I raise my shot of tequila for you guys!

Thanks, Temo!!! :) And here's to... more square meters. I think we'll handle it with relative ease. :)

It's a really nice place. I love floor plans thanks for posting that.

I liked it from the moment I saw it. I think it's a cosy home for two. Well, be alert... I'll post more plans as my ideas ooze in some useful form. :)

And I surprisingly understand what's written in Slovene this time.

So you have enough space for all your shoes? LOL

I think..... I will manage to hide all my shoes, yes. :)

I'm loving it!
Hey, is that a roadway going underneath the central greenway between buildings?
I'd assume that's where the parking you mentioned would be as well?
paterson_si
Nov. 18th, 2009 10:07 pm (UTC)
All "roads" there are just garage ramps. By the creek has two vast underground garages and that's where we'll hide our dirty cars... :)

Congrats. The building looks great. So now that you've doubled in size, we can all come visit you in Ljubljana. Party at your twice as big apartment.

Yes, Mr. Anonymous, it will be a double party! :)

Thanks, C! I am really, really happy. Oh, and I have plans to make this place look nice. :)

Congratulations!!

Which level will you be on? Am I seeing correctly that the road goes beneath the buildings, presumably to a garage level?
paterson_si
Nov. 18th, 2009 10:10 pm (UTC)
Thanks, Adam! :) We're on the 2nd floor and the "road" is just a ramp to underground garage.

Congratulations! Looks so Scandinavian too. I like.
paterson_si
Nov. 18th, 2009 10:41 pm (UTC)
Thanks! :)))))

Well, I think that this, rather minimalistic, Scandinavian style is pretty popular here. Oh, and that's totally natural, "unedited" larch wood.

Welcome to home ownership!!

The floor plan looks lovely. How is the view from the balcony? Is there room anywhere to garden if you choose?
paterson_si
Nov. 19th, 2009 07:42 am (UTC)
Thanks, W! :) It's a nice, comfy place for two. The view from the balcony is south/west - some houses and not so distant hills/mountains. Gardening? Just not my thing. :)

sweetness itself.
15 whole minutes from work tho? lol. I think that sounds plenty close enough.

Cheers again.

Nov. 19th, 2009 07:44 am (UTC)
Hehehehehehe 15 is more than 10 though, right? It's pretty cool. We liked the place from the second we saw it. :)

That looks like an awesome place. How is transit where you are going to live, or will you need to drive to get anywhere?

Any room for an American to lay his head sometime??

:-)

paterson_si
Nov. 19th, 2009 07:45 am (UTC)
Thanks! :) Transit? City buses that run every couple of minutes or car. Or bicycle. :)

There might be some extra room available, yes. :))))))

Congratulations! I think yall will be happy together. Looks very nice.

Underground parking? That's pretty awesome.

Nov. 19th, 2009 02:03 pm (UTC)
Thanks, Ernie! We love it there, really. Yes, underground garage. No roads, no noise, no parked cars nowhere in the neighbourhood. YAY for that! :)
