New house! - Nothing to See Here

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

So, we bought a house. All done, finalised, ours. Yay!

Even more yay since we just got home from Seattle to find a letter and note through our door from our apartment complex informing us that rent is going up another $70 per month.

On the down-side, it seems that we're running into hitches that may push the hardwood flooring idea over into the "too much difficulty" bucket such that we may not do it after all.

Still very happy about getting all the interior walls painted. :-) ... but if we're not getting the hardwood floors, we have to think again (again) about colours for two of the rooms.

[Edit] I have posted additionally on further discussion of the flooring conundrum.

Congrats! :)

We did 3 bedrooms with solid plank bamboo before we moved in here and it wasn't really "hard" exactly but it did suck up a whole lot of time.

The problems are ... well, there's a few. Perhaps I'll address that up in the post itself, as an edit, or as a separate post, but we weren't planning to do the floors ourselves.

[Edit] I went the further discussion in a separate post route.
