Help! We need input with our housing situation! Would you rather live in:
Very large and spacious with FOUR bedrooms! This means we could have a playroom/office! Larger living room where we could easily have people over.
BUT the area isn't great. It's not that it's dangerous, just not pretty and nice. There is an empty lot next door, which had some trash in it. And there is no yard at all (except for the lot), which means we would have to walk Phoebe on a leash a few times a day instead of just letting her out.
The location is about 10 or 15 minutes from the church and probably 20 minutes from Holden's preschool and Ryan's work.
This is a really cute, newer place with stained concrete floors, 9-foot ceilings, and newer appliances. Also a three-bedroom, with a private, fenced-in little back patio, and a shared grassy area behind that where we could put Phoebe on a lead staked down in the ground. The location is AMAZING! About two blocks from the church and three minutes from our friends the Montgomerys. It's about 10 minutes from Holden's preschool and Ryan's work. This is more the downtown area. But here is the drawback: it is TINY. Each of the three bedrooms looks barely big enough for a bed. We're pretty sure that we couldn't put both our bed and dresser in the master. So we couldn't have more than a couple people over at a time. Here is a link to the floor plan and some pictures of this place from my camera phone:
This would probably be Holden's room:

This is looking at the entire thing. Three bedrooms are all on the right of this hall, I'm taking the picture from the back of the dining room. Holden is standing in the living room, next to the front door:
