I wasn’t a fan of the house I lived in previously.
I was renting a two bedroom house in an area that was a 20 minute drive from any essential store or business. It didn’t matter if I needed gasoline or a cart full of groceries, it was a 20 minute drive at minimum no matter what direction I drove in. The rent was high too, despite being out in the middle of a rural area with lots of wooded lots and only a few houses as far as the eye could see. If a trip to the gas station took more than 20 minutes, you definitely don’t want to hear about my hour-long commutes to and from work every morning and late afternoon. I made it my mission to find a new home in a neighborhood inside the city for a change. This led me to a small complex of ground level condominiums. They’re connected like duplexes, but there are four units in each building. I was lucky to find a unit on the far end of one of the buildings, giving me amazing privacy and a good view of the golf course behind the complex. My new home gives me endless joy and aides in the relaxation process when I get home from working in the early evening hours. Still, there are some disadvantages to living here. The worst part has to deal with air conditioning. I have to deal with hearing my neighbors’ HVAC condensers all day long. Somehow I was unlucky enough to have a bedroom on the other side of the wall where the outdoor HVAC condensers are located. My next door neighbor’s HVAC condenser is incredibly loud whenever it runs. There’s nothing I can do about it either.
