Inner Space of the Downtown Loft

My wife and I visited our loft yesterday to measure the space that our belongings will occupy. Hence the blue tape you see in the picture.

We’re downsizing from about 2,500 square feet to about 1,000 square feet. So, yeah, be watching for the garage sale :-)

There will be no bicycles in that sale because we rented two parking spaces.

This move will add about a mile to my morning commute — along routes you have seen many times in video I have published here. The first part of the route is on fairly narrow downtown streets with a 20 mph speed limit. The rest of the route follows the bicycle route system — along Walnut to Hammons to Cherry — that is rapidly being improved with sharrows. But, in any case, no street along the route is¬†particularly¬†busy or otherwise difficult for even a novice to manage.

The rental agent told us yesterday that our building at 211 S. Main will have a bicycle rack outside for visitors– and residents who don’t rent extra parking space ;-)

    Your refrigerator looks an AWFUL lot like the one in our own “bike unfriendly” future locale. Our locale does adhere to the “One Mile Solution,” FWIW. We’re downsizing from 3800SF to 1800SF. It’s worse than it sounds since the former owners left furniture behind…
