At the end of November we decided to purchase a small condo (about 325 sq ft) in the next town over from where I am currently living. No… not for me… yet. My sweet daughter Jamie and her hubby Carlos will be moving in there as soon as it is finished. And it’s only twenty minutes away for me, so I’m really happy about that. Trips into the city will probably become less and less frequent. Whew! 🙂
You will recall last year I shared the process of building an extension on the house where my mom is living. The main building material used there was brick, and it took a couple of months to build. In the case of this condo, building started the first week of March, and after two months the whole two-story structure has been finished. Amazing, if you take into consideration they build two houses at a time.
This last month will be about all the “finishes:” floors (tiles in kitchen and bathrooms, bamboo flooring in the rest of the house), kitchen cabinets, bathroom tiles and fixtures, doors and closets.
So here are just a few pics of the process…
And this is what the finished house will look like. Somewhat. Our house is actually located on the street side of the complex, so it has its own private entrance and front yard. Nice. 🙂
Other than the initial two-month delay (building should have started the beginning of January), I’m so happy there have been no mishaps in this process. Am really looking forward to having my dear daughter close by!
