If you have never lived anywhere but in an apartment, and never living in a house, then you don’t think what you’re missing. I think this is a good thing for you because when you have to move from a house into a tiny apartment, it is the worst. I think it would be better if you never knew the difference honestly. Going from a house to an apartment is awful, for many reasons. This happened to me a couple years back, and there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t wish I was back in my own home. Instead of being in my own home I am currently sharing a small apartment with three other people. Our crappy apartment doesn’t have any fancy bells and whistles, it doesn’t even have zone control heating and cooling! That’s right our whole apartment is climate controlled with just one thermostat! This presents a lot of problems, because the AC is not equally distributed throughout all the rooms! While one room will be sweltering hot and need more AC, another room might be icy cold. I made the decision when I first moved into the apartment to purchase my own cooling system for my room. This little air conditioning is not really powerful, but it works perfectly for augmenting the central AC of the house! Now while the other roomies bicker with one another, I just relax in our room with a perfectly air conditioned room. They asked me if I wanted to pitch in for a new smart temperature control, but I declined because I was happy with my little cooling system.
