Some Photos of the New Condo

We had our home inspection on Thursday. It went well. There are some minor problems with a little mold and floor damage around the sliders out to the deck. The bedroom doors need are level, but not plumb and can be fixed with sandpaper. Today we learned the Radon level came back a little high and we will ask the seller to pay for a Radon Mitigation System. Our broker is pretty sure we should be able to get them to do that.

Here are some photos of the condo. This is the currently unfinished basement that we will finish and make into our media room. There is a washer and dryer behind me. We will close them off.
This is the open area next to the kitchen. We will be using this area as a sitting area when the basement is finished. We will use the current living room as our dining room. The photo I took of the room didn't turn out or I would show it.
Here is the kitchen. It's not huge, but I like it. This photo was taken in the morning so you can see how much morning light this room gets.
Here is the closet wall in my studio. Each of those closets is 6-feet long. I want to change out the folding doors for sliding doors. Then I will use the doors as design wall space. I will also custom fit the closets with shelves and drawers to hold UFOs, fabrics and supplies. Where you see the baby changing table will be my cutting table. Although I secretly covet the changing table and would love to have it.
This is the window wall in my room. My sewing table will be along this wall. My Red Sox rocking chair will go by one of the windows. I also want one more table/desk in the room for my laptop.

Today I ordered the embroidery floss for my Butterfly Garden quilt. I want to use FincaPresencia floss and no store around here carries it. I spent more time reading the patterns today and I think I may change some of my fabric choices. Some of the fabrics may be too dark so tomorrow I'll poke through my stash again to look for some lighter choices. I add some pinks too.

It's been cold here the last couple days and now is warming up. We were at or near 0 and by Tuesday/Wednesday we could be close to 50! Talk about temperature changes. Wow!

The condo looks terrific. I only though condo's were kind of like flats, but this looks like a house. Is my translation wrong?
Looks like you will have lots of space in your quilt/sewing room.

I like the kitchen too, nice and light, as is your soon to be sewing room. You have a lot of stitching ahead of you, good luck with it all.

Great photo's, and what a terrific sized sewing room. Now do you covet the change table, because it's a good table or because you'd like the baby to go with it?....

The new condo looks great and the kitchen doesn't look that small to me. It's bigger than mine!
Love the room you haave planned for your studio. I look forward to seeing it all set up.
Still smiling here over Linda's comment about the changing table and the baby :)

New homes are always so exciting. I love the light and actually your windows in your new kitchen. Yeah for morning sun!
When do you close?

Looks nice. Can't wait to see that sewing room as a sewing room!!!

A new condo - woohoo! It looks great and I'm glad the search is coming to an end.

I'd leave the folding doors on the sewing room closet. When you open them you can see the WHOLE STASH that's in there. I had sliding doors and they were always open to the wrong side or I wanted something in the middle. I ended up taking them off totally - but that solution doesn't protect from sun damage. Just my 2cents worth!
