Yesterday, my parents, my buyer’s agent and I all met at the new house to get it inspected. The first time I stepped inside the place was on the day when I saw seven other houses, too, so a lot of the details had slipped my mind. Luckily enough, now I have them captured in digital format! So here we go — a Flickr slideshow of my (and my inspector’s) photographs:
Don’t laugh. Too much, anyway.
As you an see, the current owners like wood. Really, really like wood — ceilings, floors, trim, walls, cabinets, shelving, radiator covers… Also, they’re fond of the goldenrod yellow / painter’s tape blue color combinations.
I’ve got a lot of work to do, but I’m starting to develop a list of things to help make the place feel brighter and more modern:
1. Prime the ceilings white, at the very least.
2. Repaint the living room, dining room, and master bedroom with lighter (and less abrasive!) colors.
3. Save up to have the living room floors restored (rip up the carpet, refinish the hardwood).
4. Save up to have the master bedroom, hallway, and staircase re-carpeted in something lighter and more durable.
