    • My first was a single wide MH and at the time I love it it was all mine and represented independence. Now I’m sure I would never live in one again. Living in a Hurricane zone is not a good option for MH’s and if they catch fire forget about it all is lost.

    • My first house after I was married was a single wide mobile home.  Twelve by fifty.  Thought we had it made and after Ace was born we built on a bit.  For fifteen years, we lived in a series of mobile homes, finally upgrading to a brand new double wide.   I might not like the house I’m in now, but at least it’s solid and on a foundation!!!  

      You were a brave woman to live in a MH in hurricane country!

    • The first house me and my hubby lived in was very tiny.  It was also in a bad area.  The house was all one level, no basement.  It had 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom.  But then again, it was just the two of us so it wasn’t that bad.  We moved after 6 months.

    • Our first was an apartment.  Where I am from my country is surrounded by the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean.  Our apartment was on the Pacific side of the ocean.  It was an apartment buidling owned by the Government as they were specifically for young married people between the ages 19-35.  We stayed their for 12 years then moved to the US.

      Our US apartment was small but nice but not in the best location so after 3 years we bought the houe we are in and I do love my house which we have made into a home.

    • I moved out on my own when I was just shy of 18. I lived in a small apartment in the back of a house. The family living in the main house were really nice. They treated me like family. It was a great experience.

    • My very first home was as a young bride with my new hubby.  We bought a brand new home- 3 bedroom brick w/2 baths and a very large  window which gave us a beautiful view of our backyard. A lovely place where our children were born and raised!heart Our youngest was 14 before be moved.

    • Me and my ex hubz lived in a 2 bedroom apartment that cost $285 per month. It wasn’t so bad other than the managers son was creepy.
      After that we bought a 3 bedroom bungalow (just like what I grew up in). He still lives in it with his 2nd wife.

    • When I was 18, we rented a one bedroom apartment, it was nice, all we needed. Then, I kept taking in stray cats, 4 adults, and ended up with a bunch of kittens, lol.  Gave them to pet stores then got momma cats fixed, better late than never.

    • My first apartment was a converted two car garage with a very leaky roof.  One stall was the bedroom and bathroom and the other stall was the kitchen and livingroom.  It wasn’t a well done conversion.  LOL!  The plumbing never did get finished as long as I lived there.

       While I lived there, we had at least 2 drug busts in the neighborhood, and countless domestic disturbances, but I also made a lot of good friends there and I never had to lock my door.

    • My first place I lived out on my own, was a motel. It had 2 bathrooms down the hall everyone had to share (ewwww) I know! All I had in my room was a sink, tiny closet and a bed. It felt like prison and it was closed in. They had bigger rooms but couldn’t afford that, I could barely afford the hole in the wall I was in already.

      My very first real apt had one bedroom, big bedroom which was great cause I shared that with my roommate. The bathroom was cool, the toilet and shower were separate from the sink and counters. Our living room was big but the kitchen was very small but who cared cause we hardly cooked anyway...lol we just had party after partieshappy

    • My first apartment was upstairs from my grandparents..it was a duplex and they rented it to me for $100 a month as my mom had married my step-dad and they left Buffalo...that was 1982 to mid 1984..I was 21.

      When I moved to Pennsylvania, hub and I rented a nice one bedroom, 1 bath unit in a rental complex.  It was very far from my job..I had to take a bus, then the subway, to get to work every day...very tiring!..that was in 1984-early 1986...we got married in 1985.  We then lived in Florida in a small duplex that had a nice screened in back porch from 1986 to early 1987...came back to PA and in mid 1987 bought our first three bedroom home (a row-house) and had our son in September 1987.

      We lived there from 1987 to 1995, then bought a twin home in a better neighborhood and lived there from 1995 to 2004.

      We now finally have a single home in the suburbs.  Life is better now.

    • My first apartment was a studio apartment in a nice apartment complex. Lots of trees, on the ground floor. Everything I would avoid in today’s world.

    • My husband and I lived in a small, but nice 1 bedroom apartment in Raleigh, N.C.  Rent was dirt cheap back then.  It was a great time.
