Since getting the keys last week, we've been over at the house everyday either giving tours, bringing over a few boxes or doing a few minor projects. The place is basically move-in ready except for hanging a shower curtain rod upstairs, rods and shelves in the closets and drapes downstairs. That's it! We couldn't be happier about that.
On Sunday RJ had his drummer and bassist buddies over to jam for a few hours while the house was empty. He went next door to introduce himself to the neighbors who said they were ok with the noise. He said they were a young couple in their early thirties, so that is good.
Here are a few pictures from the last few days at the house:
From the pictures you'd think the hardwoods were shiny and new, which is not the case. I love that about them. They are scratched and worn and you can tell the house has been lived in. It was built in 1916 so things like that give it so much character.
On the other side of that built-in shelf in the dining room is a built in breakfast nook. We'll have to find the perfect old table to fit in that corner.
We both love this house and can't wait to make it home!
