    whoa, we didn;t even hear about this one till after the bid?

    did you think we were giving you bad luck or something?

    a condo is prob the best thing for you B
    a young professional, just starting out, no lawn to mow, yard work, etc etc
    should work out well

    and i would def look into anything over electric heat...
    like being between two other condos and stealing their warmth

    HOA fees are $150/month
    includes grounds, plowing, mowing, trash,etc

    everything is brand new inside- freshly painted, new carpets, etc..

    has a basement and a garage...

    its at the top of a hill.... pretty quiet neighborrhood.

    its not really a condo group... not quite a triplex... i dunno.. kinda inbetween. lol


    yes, baseboard = electric heat.

    but really, who gives a shit. oil is no longer any cheaper anyway...

    i'll get some pics myself later to show you guys. i'm meeting with my realtor on sat morning to go over some more shit...

    as for heat... you guys don't understand. if my house is over 60, its a miracle. i hate it hot in my house. i doubt my bill will break 150. plus, i'm hardly ever home... and i don't leave my heat on when im not home. it goes to 50. when i come home, it goes on to 60. when i go to sleep, it goes off. when i wake up, it goes on while im in the shower, then its off all day again. i don't leave that shit on. i hate it. makes everything dry and crap.

    the vaulted ceiling in the master bdrm is pimp :p


    you didn't hear about this cuz i kinda just said F it.. no one seemed to care any more after all the crap i posted.


    but yeah, its like 5 min from work... 10 min from my parents house... 7 min from coffee night :ph34r:

    vaulted ceiling = harder to heat...

    And oil is STILL cheaper... Costs me $400ish to fill my tank... that lasts me about 5 months... It heats my house & my water. My electric bills in winter average $50/mo, and in the summer about $125 with the a/c goign 24/7.

    And we keep our house around 68-70.

    circulation fan, or ghetto plastic sheeting, or temporary drop ceiling for the winter...

    and winter is one time its better to have some meat on the bones..
    and fucking makes lots of heat too...

    Good work. Sounds like you're getting your shit straight. You're having sex once again and you're actually going to move out!

    Congrats, hopefully it goes through.

    As far as Elec. heat, our condo is about 1230 sq.ft and it costs me about 135/mo. during the winter to heat the place, however we are on a budget plan with CL&P and pay $150/mo for the whole year, so far, we have a credit of $375.00 for unused electricity. Its all about using it in moderation and what is comfortable for you. And honestly, you'll spend more money playing with the temp control so you're better off just leaving it at a lower temp all day then having it on a rollercoaster....
