We got the townhouse (I think)

Since the paperwork still needs final signatures I'll won't count on it 100% but they're accepting our offer on the 2nd townhouse.

To answer some questions I've gotten.
  • These are townhouses so we don't have anyone above or below us - just to the sides.
  • They're not all that big - just barely under 1800 square feet which is the size of the apartment we're in. Ideally I'd like to have more space but being downtown is VERY important to me as is being in a townhouse NOT a condo.
  • It's 2 bedrooms/ 2.5 bathrooms with a family/bonus room downstairs.

The family room is too small to fit my sewing stuff and the longarm so my quilting things will be split in two rooms like it is here at the apartment BUT they're on separate floors NOT next door so I'll organize things a little differently so I'm not running up and down the stairs every few minutes.

I copied the photos from the online brochure if anyone wants to look at the actual rooms.

It looks very nice. I love the kitchen, but then, I rather like to cook, & I know you are not so keen.
Glad things are moving for you.

Hi Mary, it looks like a lovely home and I'm pleased to hear it's got all the things that were important to you. I'm also pleased it has a pretty deck for you to hang your quilts on for photographing, cos I really love the way you do that! Love the river view. Good luck for the rest of the process.

I have a suggestion for guest beds. We have several twin sized air beds. They store in a small space and are really comfortable, and I'm a bed snob!
