Now, the next big question is "When do you move in?". I so wish I could say something like, "tomorrow!"...but it's going to be more like 4-6 months. Why you ask? Well, our house was built in 1958 and the lovely family we bought it from has lived there for 53 years. 53 years! And done nothing to the house...and even though it's absolutely in pristine condition (seriously. It's amazing), it is still an older home. And since we plan on spending the next 20 to..oh say, 50 years there, it's easier to do most of the updating before we move in.
We LOVE the all original Eichler. We really do. The paneling, the cabinets, the floors. It's all fantastic. Stepping into our house is like stepping right into 1958. But the electrical needs upgrading. And there's no insulation in the walls. And there's asbestos in the floors. And (as you'll see in the photos) we want to open up the space between the kitchen and what is now the living room (soon to be dining area). Etc. We could move in tomorrow and be perfectly happy, but seeing as these things will need to be done eventually...now is really the best time.
On to the photos!
Our Eichler (!!!) is 4 beds and two baths, with this sort of bonus area when you walk in from the garage:
The current living room, which is separated from the kitchen/family area:
My absolute favorite part: the atrium. That's the front door in the back and my office with the sliding doors:
The kitchen/family area:
Hallway (that's the atrium behind that floor to ceiling window):
Emilia's bathroom (and yes, that's a door that opens to the side yard):
And my office!
Man. I love this house.
