The first floor is on the right side of the building. The second floor and lower level are on the left side of the building. These aren't 100% perfect, but after running around the a tape measure for a few hours and then trying to learn FloorPlanner's interface, I might have cut a few corners. I didn't include most of the closets or doors.
The First Floor
The Second Floor
I promise you can get into the master bedroom. I forgot to put the doorway from the hallway into that room. The empty, unlabeled space in the middle is a closet. There are several others that I didn't mark.
The Lower Level
You can see that the lower level and second floor sort of match. I had a little trouble getting the two stories of the sunroom addition to line up, though.
I'm still debating the order of projects for the house. We've started working with a few contractors on projects that had to be done before we really settled in, but now we're faced with deciding whether to focus on the main floor (entertaining spaces), lower level (our more informal living space), or the bedroom.
First Day Projects
The weekend after we closed on the house, I spent most of my time at the house cleaning while Marc worked on moving. The house had been empty for over a year and was filthy. I actually did so much scrubbing that I destroyed a pair of rubber gloves and had to go back to the store for a second pair.
People say you are supposed to leave a home "broom clean" when you sell it, but there isn't really a definition of that. I actually googled it when we sold the condo and I think we left it in great condition (I washed the floors several times before we backed out of the place).
Along with cleaning, I removed a few things that were left behind...
There was an ancient can opener attached to the kitchen cabinet. I decided to take this down first because I have a fuzzy memory of my parents saying they took a can opener off a cabinet when they moved into my childhood home. My memory may be mistaken, but I thought it would be funny to do the same thing they did.
I collected all the air fresheners that were scattered around the house. Our realtor, Jim Duncan, hates it when people use these things in homes that are on the market. I'm not a huge fan of them in any home.
There were so many hooks and hangers around the house! This one was from a pair that were hanging over the stove. I saved them in case I can clean them up and repurpose them.
The fake plant will not be repurposed.
After cleaning the bathrooms, I replaced all of the toilet seats. It was such a small change, but a good one since we'll be waiting a little while to start bathroom renovations.
And then I went back to scrubbing.
