8 months pregnant here! I wish I had the option of using cloth diapers! But alas, I live in an old apartment, no laundry available easily so adding those extra steps in to what will likely be a hard schedule already, would probably drive me to insanity.

I love reading all of your tips though!

Great space!
(Possibly dumb?) Question!
What does the: Years lived in: 3 years; "rented / owned" mean?

Renting to own?

Yep! Never had any complaints or issues. But I'm a severely neat and clean painter.
My current place is a heritage and we are allowed to paint, we are supposed to show the landlord the colors first, after doing this for three rooms they eventually said "no need to show us any more, we trust your palette, go to town! :)
I'm currently painting a nursery a deep grey and I just freshened up all the white trim and windowsills. It's nice to have flexibility to allow us to take care of the place. It feels like home.

I'm getting my handy-contractor brother to build me a longer version of this! The wood is only costing me about $100.00.

I bet you could find somebody on craigslist, maybe a retired builder/hobbyist who would build you a sweet real one for way less!

Nice tips! I definitley need to crack windows when guests start showing up!
Nobody wants schweaty guests!

If I locked my kitties in a bedroom they would destroy the door and holler all night!
They love visitors! More hands for belly scratches! :)

5 Things to Do in the Last 30 Minutes Before Your Guests Arrive

I knew there'd be some fellow vancouverites commenting on this one!!
My husband and I, both in our 30's, great careers, make decent money, have a savings account, live on a cash only budget, don't go out a lot, yadda yadda..yet we will remain renters for the foreseeable future due to the crazy unaffordable real estate here.
Who can come up with a downpayment while renting in Vancouver? Maybe if you have rich parents to help you out? Not us! it's mind boggling. I'd prefer to stay in Vancouver but I'm sure once we have kids we will have to re-assess and leave.

Man! That is inspiring! My landlord asked what flooring I wanted in the bathroom and I requested this floor! He couldn't find them in Vancouver! That, or they were somehow too expensive here!? You did an awesome job here!!!! Worth every penny!

Why do people comment when they only have negative things to say? I don't understand that! You don't like it? Move to the next page!?
