AW: Yuppie abode!

Okay, so here it is! I'm so excited, I can't even stand it. (SN: I almost put "the new crib" as the subject, but I didn't want any misunderstandings).



Entryway to our little building. There are three units, we have the first floor and basement (which is partially above ground).



Entry from the front door is into the open living room/dining room/kitchen. Those things on the floor are kind of skylights into the basement. I was very iffy at first, but they somehow really work. We will definitely be putting a frosted look on the glass so guests don't feel like they cannot wear skirts to our house! We will also be adding an island to the kitchen to break up the space a little.




Our smallish, but still awesome kitchen. Now I just have to figure out optimal placement of the KA Mixer.



The master bedroom, which has access to the back patio area. We measured, and it's the perfect size for our king sized bed! I cannot wait to get that thing out of storage.


The upstairs bathroom, which will be painted. The shower (which is on the left) is awesome.



The extra-wide stairs down to the great room.



The great room from the other side of the room. See the skylights? I do love this room, but am thinking I might just want to carpet the whole thing to make it more cozy. We'll see.



Downstairs room that will be used as our guest room.



Downstairs/Guest bath... although I'm tempted to use this for my own because through the door in the back is a massive walk-in closet!

There aren't any good pictures of it, but there is a 2nd bedroom  next to the master bedroom upstairs. And a gorgeous washer and dryer tucked into the closet on the left in the downstairs bathroom. I never knew I would be so excited about appliances. All of the yellow paint is less over-whelming in person, so painting is going to be a room-by-room long term kind of project.




And they're the five best friends that anyone could have, the five best friends that anyone could have! Photobucket

    I can ditto B2B. It's gorgeous! I like the skylights - although I totally agree with the plan to frost them over.

    any idea when you get to move out of your parents and into your new crib? hehe

    MH, I cannot wait to have parties here -- the floorplan is going to be awesome for hosting!

    NCV, it's in the Rittenhouse neighborhood. We were looking in NoLibs and Art Museum, but kept coming back to this place (partially for it's awesome location). The biggest challenge is going to be parking for DH, but if it's really bad we'll just get a space in a lot nearby.

    Amy, the offer/counter-offer fun happened last week, and we accepted his counter on Friday! Now it's just a matter of getting the home inspection scheduled and getting the mortgage squared away (we were pre-approved, and I really want to lock in soon because we're getting a good rate). We put in a 45-day timeline, but I'm thinking we might be able to get it done in 30 (all depending on the mortgage, of course).

    I can fit my entire apt. in the downstairs room for sure, it might have room left over.  :-/

    Yes, but you live in London! We would definitely not be able to afford something this big in a bigger city!
