Our New Apartment – First View!

We got the keys to our new apartment on Thursday, July 14th and moved in July 15th. I spent the morning at a doctor’s appointment and then headed to the apartment. I brought up one load and then took some pictures. 


We shall start the tour at our front door….

Welcome to our humble home!
This is the living room!

Towards the front of the house, looking left from the front door..

Looking slightly right from the front door, still the living room.

As you move towards the front of the house you see a door which leads to…

An awkward 1/2 bedroom, closet, storage room…. or as my brother likes to refer to it as, “Justin’s Room”.

At the front door and looking to the right you see the kitchen and part of the dining room.

As we enter the middle of the apartment. 

Our dining room.

Dining room and a little glimpse of the living room. 

Standing at the back of the dining room, looking into the kitchen. 
We LOVE the little window/counter/cabinet combination!
It is a great place for serving up food!
Now we are entering the kitchen through the door you see here.

The right side of the kitchen.
It is huge! Probably bigger than my last three apartment kitchens combined!

The left side of the kitchen!

Continuing the same side.

A BIG FRIDGE!!!! And only a few years old too!

A BIG OVEN/STOVE! I can use BIG cookie sheets now and bake more than six cookies at a time.

The right side again. 

View of the little window from inside the kitchen.

Taking a mini pit-stop back in the dining room to show you the big closet!

 Now unto the back half of our apartment. 
This is what you see standing where the kitchen and dining room meet up.
The door furthest to the left is the bathroom, then our bedroom in the middle, then the office on the back right.

In the hallway is two doors on the right side, opposite the bathroom.

Behind the first door is a pantry/storage closet.

Behind the second door is a super creepy emergency exit.

Now our bathroom! It is bigger than our last ones two but kinda a strange shape.

I love all the extra storage space!! 

This old medicine cabinet hides behind the door. Yeah, more storage!

Heading towards the back of the bathroom.

The shower is next to the toilet. 

 Now off to the office!
Looking in from the hallway. To the left is a closet.

The right side of the room, that door leads to the attic.

Closet door.

Mini closet with a door that leads to Narnia!!
(Well actually I half opened it and the strange attic smell freaked us out and Ben told me to shut it!)

To Narnia!

Heading up to the attic… another creepy stairwell!

Here we go!
And apparently I didn’t get a picture at the top…
it is creepy…

Now heading to our bedroom.
This room is slightly bigger than the office and has more open wall space.

To the left of the room. 
We were excited to see when we moved in our landlord added some curtains!
We will change them out at some point, but they work great!

To the right of the room.

And our closet!! (Ben let me take over most of this one!)

Another deep closet. Not the best set up but we made it work!

And thus concludes the tour of our new place!

After taking pictures I began carrying up our stuff, cleaning the apartment and unpacking a bit. I did this while Ben was at work. Ben came home in the early afternoon and then the two of us brought up as much as possible! It was very hot on the day we moved so we had to take quite a few water breaks! 

Stay tuned for a look of the craziness that occurred after a day of moving in our stuff, then for a tragic tale involving a missing electronic, a recap from a weekend with our first visitors, and an updated look at our apartment as the week continues!

I am working very hard to catch up on life so keep tuning in!
