Our condo is really for sale. It’s official. It’s listed at our realtor’s website, at Craigslist, and at MLS. You can take a visual tour here. I’m of two minds — of course I want to sell it! But still, we really do love our condo, and it will be hard to say good-bye.
We’ve had about five viewings so far, so keep your fingers crossed that it sells quickly. Or not. (See, it’s that whole two minds thing).
We’re totally going public with this, Cal has mentioned it on his podcast — it’s really happening!
Laurel and SherVin from Novell met with us to talk about the final plans for the laneway house. The concepts we approved at a previous meeting are now being turned into blueprints that the city will approve. What we saw this time was basically what we had approved before, but the constraints of trying to get the most in the least space have led to the mechanical room and the laundry being moved. Laurel told us about the challenges of getting everything exactly right, only to find they were .2 square feet over the limit, and it was literally back to the drawing board. It is definitely designed right to the last square inch. The plans are still everything we wanted, and we are still very excited.
The blueprints will be before the city by mid-February, so everything should be ready for a start at the beginning of April. That seems so far away now, but I know it will be here before we know it.
