As creeped out as I was from being at the Sketchy Time Donuts condo, I drove away from that thinking it was a positive experience. It was the first time I really got to spend time in a loft-style condo, and it opened my eyes to that style of home. No time to dwell on that though, as we had two more places to see tonight in the same building: one on the 21st floor and one on the 16th.

This was our first stop to a new condo building, which is odd, considering the fact that we currently live in one. I think the reason for that is because our time in one has made us very critical of the modern condo-style experience. While they generally are very nice on the inside, many of them suffer from small and narrow layouts. They also lack character, as most of the new condos are extremely cookie cutter in nature. We scoured through seemingly dozens of new condo listings, but they all seemed to suffer from the same pratfalls of our current living situation.
When we entered the suite on the 21st floor, our concerns about size and character immediately melted away. The main living space was huge. It also had the largest ceilings I’d seen in a condo. Best of all, the living room ended with a giant glass wall featuring an amazing view of the city. Beyond that, it also featured a den that I immediately began sizing up as a potential man cave.
Though we still had one more place to visit, I could feel it in my gut that this was definitely a place to keep on the shortlist. Based on Steff’s reaction, she felt the same way. Regardless of how well this next place showed, we were definitely going to have a serious talk about it afterwards.
