We have been doggedly checking under every rock, knowing we'll know when we know. It's probably not going to be a lightening bolt, but we are encouraged by how much we're finding these days.
Most places are off the mark, like this space with the shared patio/entry. It wasn't impossible to imagine working something attractive into this place. It had a patio out back, which was nice, but the bathroom and kitchenette layout was cumbersome. This 'galleria' type entry with no space for tables out front was a deal breaker for us.
I don't know if it's that winter is coming and landlords are getting realistic or what, but we find a few to see every week. We're delighted about that.
It won't be long now.
