Well, not many of you know, but I bought a condo back a few months ago and the close date was yesterday, Jan 31. I got the keys yesterday and went in, started pulling up the tired carpet and brought in some small stuff before I bring in all the furniture etc. (I am re-carpeting) Condo rules say carpet is to be used in the main areas (except entrance, kitchen, bathroom etc) so I have to carpet over the nice looking laminate that is already there sadly. Feels great though. I am very happpy with my purchase despite needing some cosmetic TLC (previous owner did a lot of things very halfway-ish we'll just say) Here are some of the pics from first day in the new place, carpet tear up is pretty much all I've done with my pops so far. Condo pics I am buying remnants for the carpet, so the main living space will be a berber, and the 2 bedrooms will each be a bit more plush but are scraps from other jobs at the carpet place, so I am saving a pile there. I am also re-painting the entire place and will most likely go with the same color throughout. I got a new bathroom vanity as the pedestal sink in there is more or less entirely useless for space (there is no other space in the bathroom at all) I met the neighbor directly to the side of my unit and she seemed really cool, so I am very thankful for that. Already got invited for the superbowl party they're having. Nice. Helps restore my faith in humanity a lil bit, lol! And last but not least, I think my new 51" plasma will look great in my living room in this place.
