Welcome to our Apartment
Hello. Welcome to our apartment. I've been meaning to post these pics for a while...the only reason I'm posting them now is to get certain people off my back (ahem, Kari). John and I are living on the third floor of a house built in the 1840's. The second floor holds two apartments.The first floor is a pediatric dentist's office. On an occasional morning, I am welcomed with the sound of a drill buzzing and a child crying as I walk out the front door. Very pleasant.
You enter on the second floor and take the stairs to the third floor.
This is the living room/dining room/kitchen where we spend the majority of our time. There are six skylights off to the right which make lightening storms very enjoyable. The piano that you see straight ahead is new...well, new to us. Someone gave it to us. It's horribly out of tune, but hey! Free piano!
This is what John has dubed "the listening station". If you were to come for an unexpected visit, you would probably find John sitting on the floor listening to records. (We rescued this chair from the dumpster.)
Some of you will notice that we have a new t.v. So long to the little 14-incher with its own handle. (We pulled the two chairs from the side of the road.)
The dining room. (Todd and Lisa, you may recognize the wicker chairs...let us know when you want them back.)
The kitchen--complete with dishwasher (almost as exciting as the washer and dryer).
Our bedroom #1
Our bedroom #2
Our bedroom #3 (The red chair was rescued from the dumpster)
Office #1 Where John does lots of thinking.
Office #2 (the black chairs in the office were given to us by a friendly D-town relator who was getting new furniture...are you noticing a pattern with the chair in our house?)
The bathroom--only one shot of the bathroom. There's a shower and toilet as well, but I didn't think you'd be interested in seeing those.
Thanks for checking out our pictures. Come see the real thing. If you're ever in NYC or Philly let us know.
