A Little Tour of the New Apartment

A bit of history. 

I run a residence hall at a university. I supervise the RAs.

2 years ago I was in hall A. I closed hall A for an 18 month renovation in December 2009.

We moved to hall B and stayed there for the next year and a half.

Last month we moved back to hall A and I will be opening up a newly-renovated beautiful hall A in August.

Catch all that?

Here's a peek at our new place. The Lord has truly blessed my husband and I with my job and our home. 


Welcome to our "house!"


Hallway from the front door (the front door is inside the residence hall in case you were lost).
Storage room on the left. Washer/dryer closet on the right.


The most amazing kitchen ever.


Dining area and living room (we have a bigger table now so it looks a little more full).


Living room.


The cat's new favorite spot...the coffee table.


We have a little patio with a grill and furniture forthcoming.


Hallway to the bedrooms/bathrooms. Yes, multiple of each.


Bathroom number 1. Rather boring right now.


Spare bedroom/craft room. More on that later.


Bathroom number 2.


Bedroom.


And larger than life closet.

These were taken we we first moved in. It looks a bit more lived in now. And a few things have shifted around.

What do you think??

  21. I deleted my last comment because I miss-spelled a word. I'm weird like that. :0) Anyway, your new place is lovely! I was picturing something waaaaaaaay smaller, I guess something more along the lines of a college dorm room! ;0) Your place looks roomy, airy, and beautiful.

  22. Ummm.... WOW! I was an RA in college and I can tell you that our director didn't have anything close to this. It was nice and newer, but much much smaller. Your space is fabulous. Not only the actual space but also how you decorated it. Just love all the details and that big open space.
