    I'm just joining in to add another "congratulations!" to the mix. That is a nice looking house. To be honest, I'm much more of a dark wood kind of guy, but those pictures of the inside of the house, especially those beautiful built-ins, have got me rethinking my stance. So beautiful! I'm also a sucker for french doors so that entry into the kitchen is right up my alley as well. I'm joining Jeff in the "jealous" category! Congratulations again!

    I bought a house. A HOUSE!

    We closed yesterday (I piloted the first 100% digital mortgage with my credit union too) and got the keys. IT HAPPENED!

    Here are some pictures - let me tell you - this place has an ABSURD amount of storage, and some of the most beautiful built-ins I've seen in a house.

    There are more built-ins down the hallway with the bedrooms. There's also a 75% finished basement with more bookshelves (not built-ins but the previous owner did a HELL OF A JOB mounting a bunch of book shelves.

    This house checked every box we had and then some.

    So yeah - this finally happened.
    Congratulations!

    Great looking house and those book shelves are awesome!

    TacomaDiver  Now that's a house! Those built-ins are really nice. They'll look even better once they're filled with books

    That's exactly what I ended up doing - going some Goo Gone and got those pesky stickers off.

    If you (or anyone) is looking for a good way to get sticker residue off, try Goo Gone sprayed on the end of a Q-tip. You can spread it on with a light or heavy hand, let it sit for a few seconds, then use a plastic scraper to work the residue off.

    If you don't get all the residue off the first time, just flip the Q-tip around and repeat. A regular-sized bottle of Goo Gone will go a LONNNGGG way if you're only using it for this.

    Ron, there is one scheduled for Seattle Oct 14-15 and one for Portland oct 21-22..Side note, I will touch base with you the first week of September, we'll be in Seattle visiting our son and daughter for a week.

    Hi Guys!
    Went to the Richmond edition of Oddities and Curiosities and had a great time. Picked up a few things, no weird taxidermy or dolls HAHA!! I did grab two neat Halloween Shadowboxes for my bookshelves. Lot of Fun, I would recommend it, the people watching was fantastical. No good books though.
