Here is what I'm looking for:
- one bedroom apartment (or possibly a studio), depending.
- I need a real kitchen (no galley kitchen). One thing I am certain of, the kitchen needs to be separate from the rest of the apartment (one door, not a thoroughfare to anything like the entrance way or the bathroom).
- The epilepsy does require that the apartment be on public transit, and have elevator access if it is higher than the second floor.
- I own the laziest cat in the world, and am not planning on getting another one, but I do require the apartment be cat-ok.
I'm flexible on this; I could live with a roommate, but they would need to recognize that the kitchen is going to be set up for commercial use from the start. The ideal roommate situation would actually be a 2br apartment with an office; I could keep all the decorating supplies completely separate and aside from the baking could work entirely in there.
In a shared situation w/office, I would say $600 for a bedroom, $400 for the office (so the apartment would be $1600 for two bedrooms with someone else. In a one bedroom, I'd want the rent to max at $1200. A studio would be fine if it had a *real* kitchen. I need to be able to isolate small away from food prep areas while doing business work (the irony is if I'm just decorating cookies in the kitchen, she ignores me, because I am boring. If I'm decorating cookies in the kitchen and the door is shut, she'll desperately want to come in, but those are the state's rules).
I'm pretty sure this means I'm leaving Somerville, which will make Xander sad. I think maybe we'll just tell him I'm still living in Somerville, because while he'll say the other towns around here, when he's told we're going to Somerville, he'll happily exclaim, "SUMMAVIWWE!"
