Michoacan is a state in the Southern part of Mexico. We live in Uruapan, Michoacan, Mexico and our moving to Mexico journey began over three years ago. I never thought that we would be in our 5th rental home in only three years.
There are a few stories behind our rentals and you can find links to them below. They may be of interest to you if you are considering moving to Mexico!
I have high hopes that this 5th home is our last move for several years. I really love this house. It is my favorite home out of all five because of space, price, and our kind landlord. We are paying 6000 pesos a month which at today’s exchange rate is 295 USD.
Right now the exchange rate is 1 peso to 20.36 USD. That changes a little every day and over the past three years it has changed a lot. When we were moving to Mexico in 2013 it was 1 peso to 12.50 USD. Right now we are getting a lot more for our money however it could easily change. That is something to be aware of if you are thinking about moving to Mexico or any other country. Check the exchange rates and the cost-of-living.
So without further ado let me show you our newest home and hopefully our last home for at least several years! I am really tired of moving especially with four children!
Our bedroom with master bath. All the bedrooms have built-in closets. All of our homes in Mexico have had these so far. Love it!
Our patio off our bedroom and yes, I killed those hanging plants.
Our upstairs foyer where I have a small desk and the boys have a play area.
Boys room – That window is locked in place with screws. It won’t open any further. I was afraid one of them would fall out or get pushed out…
Girls room – They also have space for a desk and chair.
Storage closet where we keep our books in the upstairs foyer.
Downstairs foyer which is another play area for the boys.
Living room – None of the windows have screens. Usually, it’s not a problem. Four out of five of our Mexican homes have been without screens.
Right now we are in the middle of painting all that brown trim white. We are about half done with the downstairs trim and then we are painting upstairs trim.
Last week I bought new dining room chairs! Yea! I am so happy. They look much better than these ugly folding chairs.
Brad made me this simple wine rack off Pinterest. Gotta have priorities ;-)
Patio doors leading to back yard and our giant mutt, T-Rex.
My favorite thing about the dining room… a small atrium. It’s actually off the garage and it opens to the sky.
Kitchen complete with fly trap… Honestly they look tacky but they work great!
Love my tall pantry cabinet – Kitchen opens to the laundry room.
Our big baby that weighs about 100 pounds. At least his bark is furious and he scares off everyone who comes near the front door! Alexis took this and it was too cute not to add…
Backyard leading to two separate rooms. They both have their own baths.
School room and guest room. The owner of these belongings was an Australian friend visiting from Northern Mexico.
Exercise room – Possibly a future second guest room.
That is my laundry room in the back. It is basically a sunroom so I can hang-dry my clothes inside when it rains.
The garage where we can park our big Yukon Denali. Love it. No more running inside in the rain!
Front of our house. It’s right on the street. That is our bedroom window upstairs. Not the prettiest design but it’s very common in Mexico. Personally, I love the privacy of having the garage between our living area and the street.
Our view from our front door and our upstairs window. What do you think? Is it a good deal? Signing off in Mexico, Tina
