The Gears Turn.

I've succeeded in convincing Baz to move to Detroit.  And all it took was the promise of massively industrial looking lofts to seal the deal.

Loft kitty not included.

Exposed brick? Check.
Visible ductwork? Check.
Open floor plans? Check.

Oh yeah.  He's hooked.

We started a Pinterest with different lofts that strike our fancy.  Take a peek - we're updating it daily and feverishly.

Detroit Loft City

Trying to figure out the logistics of it is tricky - our lease is up in only about 5 months, so we'd need to get rolling relatively quickly.  Start selling our (sparse) furniture, figure out moving trucks, getting a car, etc.  I don't really know how realistic it is to be able to do all of this, considering we need to at least, you know, VISIT Detroit at some point, sometime soon.  Ideally, we would visit once for a few days just to get a feel for the city, then visit a second time to actually meet with brokers and close on a place.  However, with the holidays coming up, travel would be expensive and mid-November until the beginning of January is nigh on impossible.

So, are we crazy?  Or simply in love?
