They Moved In

 The Blog Tech and his sweetie moved into his house last night.  It was his birthday and he thought his girlfriend was in DC.  She drove in and surprised him by making a delicious dinner for him when he got back from work.  She made seared scallops, truffle risotto and roasted brussel sprouts. One of his favorite meals.

 I still have to finish the basement after it is painted and I'll show that when I am done with it.

 The kitchen door turned out very nice.

 The master bedroom.

 I might place a big pine armoire on this wall for more closet space.

 The first floor bath.

 It's small but it's nice.

 Dining room.

 I hung some photos I bought in Bar Harbor, Maine.

 The upstairs bathroom, also small but cute.  It's white but it looks yellow in these pics because of the glare from the lights.

 It still has the original tub from 1943. I installed a shower and glass doors.

It turned out pretty nice.
 This is an office/guest room.  I had these day beds custom made and had handmade ticking mattresses made for them.

 More Maine photos.

 This is the biggest room in the house.

 This is the 3rd bedroom.  I am waiting on rods so I can hang the drapes.

 This bedroom has 2 pretty big closets.

 A closeup of the headboard.

So, except for the arrival of a coffee table and one more end table, the place is basically done.  I sure hope they enjoy it!  I think it is a very good house for making babies!  Ha ha....I am a scheming wanna be babcia.

Best wishes for their lovely home! And you have a real designer touch for interior design -- everything you did is so balanced and charming and really suits the place and its new owners! Don't forget to grant their new home a name ..... always settles the atmosphere and claims their own hearth! Homes need names!

The Blog Tech & his Sweetie are 2 very lucky young people to have such a lovely & "grow-up" first home. I think most adults who have worked for many years only dream of living in a home like this. You really outdid yourself with this project. I think all the furniture you picked out was fantastic, but I esp. loved those day beds. Where did you find them? The prints from Maine are a great touch. I always think artwork warms up a home. I hope the Blog Tech realized how much of your love for him exists in his new home. When the time is right, I hope your wish for some grandbabies comes true. Happy birthday to the Blog Tech.

Oh, the word babcia is so familiar! We say that in Ukrainian, too. My granny was Polish.

Gosh, you made it so beautiful. What a wonderful birthday surprise for the blogtech!
The whole thing is just beautiful. How did you know her taste in everything? I would never try such a thing..I'd blow it..I just KNOW I would! You did a fantastic thing for them.
New girl friend...

New house...

Someone wanting to be a babcia... :-)

Hope it all works out, this time.
