Pictures from my new apartment.

We live on the 10th floor in a rent-controlled building in Eastern Copenhagen. It's double plus socialism because the only way I could possibly ever get this apartment is through nepotism.

Tizz is preparing for the views of the interior of the apartment. So I will give pictures from the outside and the view from my apartment.

Right from my balcony, the morning view.

The view of our building from the train station. (It's the tallest one.) The fancy building in the front, with the modern art, huge windows, and second floor garden, is the tax ministry.

And now for some views from the 16th floor (the highest floor in our building.)

Views from the 16th floor. pt. 2

The bronze building is the tallest in the neighborhood by a few feet.

I can see where my parents live from here.

You can see the biggest football stadium in Denmark from here.

haha... I was like "they have football in denmark?" and then I remembered ;)

and I love the architecture... but it's a bit too metropolized... there aren't any plants! All the buildings look long and thin... are they apartment complexes?

Yeah they are. But it's of Eastern Copenhagen style. So it's not as ugly as some of the "modern" architecture of fancier parts of town, and not nearly as Eastern European like some other parts.

And we have plants! 10% of Denmark is forest.

I like the morning view. It looks like typical Northern architecture. Like the houses in the very northern parts of Germany. Kinda the way I imagined it to be. How many rooms you got?

wheelchairman
08-18-2006, 11:13 AM
A small entry. A bathroom. A living room/kitchen, a bedroom and a "walk in" closet.

Per is making me post these, while he left to pick up a friend. He thought it was extremely important for me to say this is me, so yes, this is me, Tizz.

I approve of the walk-in closet!

The bathroom. It was gross, I think Per's brother, who used to live here, never cleaned it. I did. I found pubes, black water came from the walls and bathtub, and the toilet was gross. Per has to love me forever now.

The apartment is GREAT, seriously. It looks pretty huge and the windows are good. I love the view too. Hope you enjoy living there.

But the bed looks like crap, you definitely need new sheets.

The ap looks great, lots of light and air http://www.offspring.com/forums/images/icons/icon14.gif

Oh, and Copenhagen looks the same as in Google Earth. Heh. I mean, that architecture.

Just one question: That water you see from the balcony, is that the ocean or is it sweet water?

Sweet water?

Preocupado
08-18-2006, 01:01 PM
Yeah, you don't call it like that? You know, the water that isn't connected to the salty water from oceans and seas.

Paint_It_Black
08-18-2006, 01:02 PM
Oh, ok. We call it fresh water.

That's the ocean. We live near the Northern Harbor. Thanks for teh comments everybody.

Interesting notes on the photo comments, Tizz wrote all of them. Go back and re-read them. And then think "wow, that is really weird."

Preocupado
08-18-2006, 03:19 PM
yeah, i asked that to tell you about the electronic stuff, specially the computer. The moist air that comes from the sea highly reduces the useful life of those. It gets all over inside them and makes them rusty. Eventually, they burn or blow up (three times for me already). It takes more care in the coast to keep them working. (put covers, water absorbing bags, that kind of stuff)

okay most of those picture comments got much weirder knowing that tizz wrote them, haha.

I seriously do like the place. how much does it cost you per month? (preferably in american dollars, plz) :)

You're right, he didn't. Quite the opposite, actually.

well it could also be taken as surprise... like "oh wow, tizz looks SMALL on that bed". it was a joke. I obviously wasn't serious.

08-18-2006, 04:45 PM
Yeah, i was thinking, how can calling her small imply she is fat?

Yeah, I know it was a joke.

Perhaps it is a really big bed!

perhaps she is a midget, and that is really a single bed.

Tizz does! Tizz just tried making it look like Per wrote them though (especially the ones where they are complimentary about her), but Per ruined that :(

H1t_that, I AM tiny.

The bed is niiiice and big, we were used to sharing a single bed together, so this is a big improvement!

Kathy, we act so couply sometimes, we bought a vacuum cleaner, and the other we caught ourselves looking at the window of a kitchen appliances store. WTF?

I am not living here full time yet though, but I will be here a lot.

That's good. Only people that really love each other can share a single bed for long.

Yeah, that was my cruel and perhaps overly subtle implication.

Per told me to make that my user title. Well, almost that. I had to fix the spelling.

And to Ilovellamas, the rent is 516 dollars per month. Which is actually a very good rent for Copenhagen.

Preoccupado, I don't think the ocean will present much of a problem here.

Wow, that is awesome rent for a pretty sweet-looking apartment. And location seems nice as well.

Holy fucking shit. This may be a good rent for your city but in mine, which is far more pricy in every other aspect, it's waaaayyy too much!

But gosh, I love the apartment. I just love how it turned out. And Aldi makes me lol

:P

Nina, Copenhagen is like the 3rd or 4th most expensive place to live in the world.... There's Tokyo, London and probably New York ahead of us.

And Aldi furniture for life. Although it will piss you off while building.

Stockholm is the most expensive city to live in(at least thats what i heared).

BTW: Great house man!

Actually Copenhagen is only number 8 according to most lists, but it could be your real estate is higher versus other cities. It's quite a bit for a gov-funded flat.

Around here they got for under 350, for a two bedroom, for the sponsored ones I mean. But incl. heating and hot water. The regular ones are nearly twice as expensive.
