I don't think I've ever even mentioned our tenant on the blog before and I don't have a photo even though he's lived on the premises on weekdays for nearly a year now. When Husband decided to go back to university last year we decided to try to rent out the double bedroom and bathroom in our basement (the basement is a walk out with really good light actually).
|Before we furnished|
We had no idea whether or not anyone would be interested as we're a decent distance from the university (my morning drive points that out to me on a daily basis) and we have three pets. We really really lucked out. It seems our demographic was working professionals who had new jobs in our city but weren't fully prepared to give up their lives in another city in the province. We had at least two people who said they would only be around part of the week and spend the rest of the week in Fredericton.

After nearly a year of spending most of the week with us I think he's looking forward to seeing his wife and his own pets a bit more but Sadie in particular is going to miss him. I'm hoping this is a good sign that we're wrapping up the MBA stage of our lives as well and can do back to be DINKs (dual income no kids) very soon.
