Househunting

We flew into Seattle last Saturday, saw four different houses on Vashon Island on Sunday, made an offer on one on Monday, and will be going off to the Inspection in about an hour. Financing arranged, insurance policy written-up, closing date set for July 15th. Whew!

I'm still too new at this LJ stuff to have figured out how to post a picture here, but if you email me I'll send you a jpeg.

It's a fairly new Contemporary single level house on 2.7 acres about five miles from the ferry dock and a mile out of town. Recently remodeled, the interior is beige. Beige carpet, beige walls, beige countertops. You name it. Good thing we have all those bookshelves to liven the place up.

During todays inspection I plan to measure out every room and have some idea of how many bookshelves we WON'T be moving from Chicago. A critical piece of knowledge before our Yard Sale on July 3rd.

I really wonder how this yard sale will work out. We have, besides a lot of bookshelves, quite a lot of books we won't be moving, giant piles of clothes and kitchen stuff and a fair number of old but working computers.

If you're in town, stop by 1935 W. Pratt in Chicago between 9 am and 3 pm on Saturday, July 3rd. We might even have cookies or something.

...Well, poo, why do I always realize that people live two blocks from me when they're having the yard-sale to move out?

On second thought, don't answer that. :)
