How'd I get so lucky?

Floorplan courtesy of Dan; text, doors, and Easter-egg-looking radiator placement by me.

As I've mentioned, I'm getting ready to move in a few weeks. My boyfriend Dan and I just signed our lease yesterday for a one bedroom English basement in Dupont. It's very sweet, but as a one bedroom, it doesn't have a built in craft room, and we'll have to carve some space from the ample living room. We were trying different arrangements on the mostly-to-scale floorplan that Dan drew up last night, and I was stressing out, wondering if my extremely large, well-loved craft desk would fit and look right in the space.

Dan busied himself with the plan for a minute and before showing it to me said, "I don't know if I necessarily like or want this idea, but it's a thought."

He had drawn a bed in the living room's craft corner, leaving the entire bedroom open for crafting and office space.

Is it any wonder that I love this man?

It's no wonder. I'm incredibly good looking.

You need to keep that one under lock and key.

Any chance he has a like minded brother:)

Hell even a sister if she'd let me take ovet the only bedroom for crafts;)

I know, right? We'd been searching for a two bedroom so we could have a dedicated craft space, but we both really liked this place. We've got a plan right now that will divvy up the big living area into distinct zones for crafting and his office without having to resort to the studio flat arrangement. But the mere fact that we determined the placement after analyzing the bed-in-the-living-room possibilities lets me know I'm cohabiting with the right guy. :)

To answer your question more directly, his available sibling is a brother, but he lives in Colorado. I think he owns a multi-bedroom place, though... ;)
