Default Big Move...BIg Renovations...Big Time!

Well, its nearing completion. But I finally moved into my new condo about 10 days ago after some massive renovations. We still need to do a lot of work, mostly accessorizing, quarter rounds and repaint the baseboards as well as some new furniture that has to still arrive.

We need our coffee table and glass enclosed bookcase as well as new bar chairs for the kitchenette table. Angie and I decided to start livng together, and so far so good. I look forward to hosting a few BC members this summer...should be good times.

As for the renovations, I'll let the pics speak for themselves.

I'm happy for you Jim! I can't remember your exact age, but is this your first place out on your own, or were you living by yourself before you got a place with angie? again, it'* great to see you doing well Jim. You deserve it!
