  • We are stationed overseas and we have no choice but to live in a high rise (that's all there is here) it's a 4 bedroom and we have 2 kids.

  • I do. I'm not sure what you mean by make it work. Many people live in apartments. We have a backyard, a garage, our own parking, our own washer/dryer. Its not an issue and I don't have any current plans of buying a house for many years, if ever.

  • I do, and not sure what you mean by "make it work" either. Millions of people make it work with a family in an apartment.

  • Theres nothing wrong with apartment living, some people just can not afford to buy a house.

  • we did before I had my baby. we lived in a 2 bedroom apartment with my two step-kids. when i became pregnant we knew we needed to find somewhere with at least 3 bedrooms. and we found a house we could get that had 5 bedrooms. so we lucked out.

    either way there is nothing wrong with apartments as long as you dont mind neighbors. this is the first time i have lived in a house since my mom, sister, and i lived with my grandma when i was little.

  • We live in a townhouse. I like it, just wish we could paint.
