...Even Kirkland wouldn't be so bad...But I'm with Spike on this one. There are plenty of very nice neighborhoods on the east side within a fairly easy commute from Microsoft. They're all good school districts.
And commuting around here gets really old after a while, sitting in traffic in the rain, in the dark....Nope, no fun at all. Minimize it if possible.All those places Spike mentioned are worthy of consideration. Maybe throw in Newcastle and/or Kirkland, but I wouldn't do any further than that....405 is brutal, especially headed south in the afternoon.

What about Duvall? That's on the other side of Microsoft and the costs might be a little less.

Yep I agree. Throw in Kirkland and Newcastle. I'm pretty sure Newcastle was rated one of the best and most affordable suburbs in the country. A bit farther of a commute for your husband but shouldn't be more than 30 mins.
