For the moment, the following images will give you (and s, too, in years to come) a clearer sense of what the space looked like when we first closed on the condo. Much updating has already been done (new appliances and mechanicals for example) but that's already part of another post.
As I type this the electricians are in upgrading the electrical system, adding new ceiling fans, light fixtures, etc. Since not all of the fixtures have arrived, however,t hat process will remain open for probably a week or two yet.
Main level, the kitchen:
|the wallpaper, reefer and dishwasher are gone|
|the GE stove, c. 1984, has been replaced and the microwave replaced by a ventilation hood|
Main level, living room:
|from the entry, looking to the rear and down the stairs|
|looking back to the entry|
|looking into the hall to the bedrooms|
|toward the master bedroom|
|toward the office|
|master bath - the bathrooms are slated for phase two of remodeling|
|master bed room: Susie's readying all the main floor the closets for painting before the closet systems are installed next week; also lights will be added inside the closets as well|
Stairway to lower level:
|from family room to 2nd bath|
|from bath to family room|
|wood burning fireplace|
|passageway from laundry into mechanical room|
|the old refrigerator has been placed against this wall next to the outlet|
|washer and dryer replaced|
|looking through the passageway into the mechanical room|
|looking into the laundry room from the mechanicals|
So, this pretty much gives you an idea of what new condo was like a week ago -- more changes to come so stay tuned!
