House Hunting

Looking for houses or flats here is an interesting experience. What we are noticing is that flats have way more space that houses, which obviously doesn't make logical sense.

So far we've seen:

-a 3 bedroom house
-a 3 bedroom duplex tenement flat (ground floor/basement)
-a 3 bedroom duplex new build (top floor)
-a 3 bedroom tenement flat (top floor)
-a 3 bedroom tenement flat (ground floor)
-a 5 bedroom duplex tenement flat (top floor)

We have 2 more viewing tonight of a flat and townhouse. We've mostly looked in the East End but today all our viewings are South Side.

For those who don't know a tenement looks like this:
-3-4 floor sandstone building usually with 2 flats per floor

-large rooms with bay windows, fireplaces and 15 foot ceilings.

We live in a one bedroom tenement now and my two favorite are also tenements. I'm trying to keep an open mind and view different types of properties and different areas, but I know what I like and what I don't like.
