New House (Interior)

The layout of our new townhouse is very similar to where we currently live. The first room you see when you walk in the front door is the living room. There is a step up to the dining room...which will actually be our piano area.
The stairs zig-zag up and down to the bedrooms upstairs and the family room in the basement. The hardwood floors are in mint condition, and the rest of the house has new carpet - always a plus. I think what I'm really looking forward to is putting some color on the walls.
The kitchen is functional, but it needs a lot of updating. Eventually this kitchen will be completely transformed. The first easy (and cheap!) fixes are new light fixtures and new knobs on the cabinets. New appliances will soon follow, probably within a year (as long as the originals last that long).
Our table will go at the far end of the kitchen, and I'm sure Rosie will love having her perch in front of the south-facing windows. We will get possession on August 19th, and then we can get crackin' with painting and moving in.

Wow! I miss our hardwoods and gas stove. I can't wait to see the new place!
