I need Advice

I'm 16 and live in Albuquerque, a city in the US. I want to move in with my girlfriend and I need advice.

I am 16 and a dancer. When I was 14, I met a girl who was 18. Now she's 20, we've been together for 1 year and 4 months and our relationship has grown a lot. Both of our parents know about and support our relationship. We are very open about our relationship and don't mind telling people our story. We have gotten so attached that we are thinking about moving into her grandma's house together. I live in a 2-bed/1-bath apartment with my family - 2 adults and 2 sisters. Me and my sisters sleep in a room together. I have no privacy and it's always so loud which is frustrating because I can't get homework done - or even get into my room to change after showering because somebody always locks the door on me. I need space! My girlfriend and I believe that moving in together would really help us out! I would still want to see my family but I don't want to continue living here! It doesn't feel like home. It feels like a place that I'm forced to come back to by a certain time everyday! I would like some advice, guidance or opinions. Please reply!
