Anybody want a 3BR 3BA duplex down condo? I'm posting these realtor pictures so that I can remember the one moment in time our house was clean. For those of you who have actually set foot in our condo, I thought you'd get a good laugh out of seeing these, knowing that it never looked like this. For those of you who haven't been here, I figured it might be fun to see the whole place for once, instead of just catching glimpses of messy rooms in the background.
Next up: a follow up post on our move process. And tips! Actually, never mind, because I have just one tip, which I'll share with you now: NEVER try to sell a home with three children living in it, one of whom is 19 months old. (Waylon, no offense, dude, but it's true. I'm cleaning like the Queen is stopping by, with the Tasmanian Devil by my side.)
I apologize for it being March. This is not our city's finest moment. But when you gotta sell, you gotta sell. Also, the building does not look this tall in real life.
Our front room/kitchen, shown from several different angles. We've arranged this room several different ways over the years, but never like this with the two chairs there. Also, it is not bowling alley big. That's just the magic of real estate photographers. Do not believe what you see on the Internet.
Moving on down the hall, it's Waylon's room, (which used to be June's before Waylon was born...which used to be Georgia's before June was born...which used to be an office before Georgia was born).
It may not be winning any design awards, but I think this room's gender neutral scheme has held up well. That chair was never my favorite look and won't be coming with us to the new house, but it earned its keep by being comfortable for nursing and reading. It certainly deserves its retirement after so many late nights and so much spit up.
The upstairs hallway bathroom, aka the kids' bathroom.
The master bedroom. There used to be a desk stuffed in here, too, but we've moved things out to make it look more spacious. Wish they hadn't made our duvet look like such a blob! Oh well.
P.S. We did not pick out those valances.
Master bathroom, aka the place where I have showered and bathed with company and done my business with an audience for the last five and a half years.
Downstairs family room/playroom. I'm quite proud of this room, because keep in mind that it used to look like this. And then this.
The girls' room. June's cribed is right inside the doorway so you can't see it here.
Downstairs hallway bathroom. Our bathrooms here are more plentiful and nicer than they will be at the next place.
The back deck. Again, it's March, so what can I say? At least they overexposed the view so you can't make out much of the alley.
Of course there are a few areas not pictured, like our laundry room and front dug out patio, but there you have it! Much larger and lighter than I remember it being. ; )
