We were driving around my favorite neighborhood in the city and stumbled upon an apartment building that was still under construction. It turns out that Jose's dad knows the owner, and he was willing to give us a fantastic deal on a 2 bedroom apartment...with a view!!
It's not completely finished yet, so we have to wait a couple of weeks. But the owner is letting us paint and letting Jose's dad rearrange the very awkward layout of the kitchen.
Finally...our own place!! :)
