Good news!! Everything with the house is moving along! It was a little uncertain after my first post .. the home inspection for the home that the sellers of our house are buying (still following?) didn't go very well. Luckily the major issues will be fixed - so the sellers have lifted the "home of choice contingency" (if they didn't find a home, they would have the option cancel our contract) We still don't know if we'll be able to close early (scheduled to close early January) ... hopefully the repairs on the other house will be fast, but we're not sure yet. We'd love to be in by Christmas since we'll be spending some time in MD.
Full tour when we do the final walk through (and I have my good camera), but these are a few of my favorite things (yes, I did just watch the Sound of Music :)
1. The house was thoughtfully designed. Most of the windows are on the southern exposure (good for loads of natural light) There are lots of floor to ceiling windows with a wooded lot so you aren't on top of your neighbors. This is one of the bedrooms on the first floor.
2. Upstairs loft area (my future office) Love the large windows, and I've always had a thing for lofted areas.
3. Other upstairs loft. This is off of the master bedroom. I'm not sure what we'll use it for (probably a sitting/reading room), but on the right wall (where the white filing cabinet is) we'd love to do a built in closet area or shelving for extra storage on the entire wall. There is a walk in closet on the other side of the wall, so it kinda makes sense.
You're probably wondering about the wood. Yes, we will be painting most of the ceiling (maybe not the beams) it will be A LOT of painting we'll need a sturdy ladder or scaffolding, an amazing paint sprayer and lots of patience. It will make it so much brighter!! Maybe this (white and weathered wood with warm wood elements) or this (white ceiling with natural beams) or this (white and white) Dreamy, right?
Can't wait to show you more!! We're SO excited! :)
