SOLD! Sort of...

As summer turns to fall and our carpenters walk gracefully and carefully on the engineered trusses that form our roof, we have taken a deposit on our house and it will be off the market while the new owners to be make sure everything is just the way they want it to be. 

The family has 3 children and they wanted the upstairs to have 3 bedrooms and 2 baths so we sketched up a design, they approved, gave us a non-refundable deposit and we changed it on the fly. Here is the old and new layout.

In addition to the cost to do this, the revisions involve carpentry, plumbing, heating, electrical, windows, cabinets, tile, interior doors and trim, etc. we need to communicate and coordinate all this stuff to all these people but that’s our job and we will get it done. We need to have a Plan B in case things don’t work out with our new buyers (the fact that we will make the effort and go to the expense of preparing a Plan B increases the likelihood that we won’t need to use it) so we are meeting with our interior designer next week to pick all of the finishes and colors so we can proceed promptly to completion in either event. Here is how things looked today.

Have a great and safe weekend!
