Expanding the Studio

Our dream is to live close to The Great Park when it is completed. So with all the news talking about real estate taking a plunge, we've started looking around for investment property. If the market keeps getting better (for us) then we're definitely going to buy a second home/studio. That's one of the steps we plan to implement in order to build up to our dream home. We want to invest in enough property and combine those so that we can reserve a nice spot within the new communities planned for The Great Park. So we started looking at some townhomes around the new developments in Irvine, CA.

It was actually really fun seeing some cool properties and to imagine our second studio in Irvine. I love the new designs that have tall ceilings throughout...


Cool decorating ideas too.

For some reason this room in particular was calling out to me (is it the painting?)

Sooo excited for you and Lily! I hope you get the studio soon because then we can start having OC Pugs there...did someone say PAR-TAY!?! (Just kidding Lily!) ;)

PAR-TAY for sure! I'm really excited because it's getting more and more realistic since real estate prices are actually going down...

Nice house indeed! But just to clarify, this is not mine - these are different pics from model homes that we're looking at. Well, maybe by the end of this summer I'll be posting the new place. If you're also considering buying property in SoCal, just wait a little more... prices are still dipping...
