My favorite houses had the cathedral ceilings with wood beams (my house has that), beautiful wood work (I want some), they were old world, classic, traditional charm. I am not a sleek and modern person. I want unique, quirky, different. I love the new trend of barn doors. We have a lot of ideas if we ever decide to build a house. We know what we want and definitely what we don't want. It was really nice to see my husband get just as excited as I already was about seeing houses. He was just going to go Saturday, but after having so much fun he decided to go Sunday as well.
The condos downtown were awesome. The first one, the master bedroom (which was the size of my daughter's room...not big) had a fantastic view of the our downtown skyline from the bed. It was 3 stories and the kitchen living area was on the second floor and the two bedrooms were on the third floor. The first floor was a foyer and garage. The condo was bigger than our house square footage wise, but I think they count the garage in the square footage. The second was supposed to be the size of our house, but it was small. It did have a cute kitchen/living space, but the 2nd bedroom was on the ground floor right by the front door. Not cool! The third condo was FANTASTIC! It had a two car garage, 4 floors, 4 bedrooms, a theater/game room, two living areas and a huge kitchen. It also had it's own private elevator. The view was of the three intersecting interstates and from the balcony you could see the downtown skyline. It also overlooked Bricktown and our riverwalk. It also came with the price tag of $830K. Yikes. It was sure fun to look though.
Here are a few pictures I took with my iphone (so ignore the quality).
I want a laundry room, unfortunately I have a laundry closet, but I could do these awesome barn doors instead of my swing out doors and save space.
My ceiling is like this now, but it's all brown. I would love to do this treatment to mine.
Looking downstairs from the 4th floor of the condo. The white frames on the right is the windows to see out of the elevator.
My favorite entry. I love the brick pattern. I have no idea what my kid is doing.
The $1.75 million dollar house.
I would love to have these lighting fixtures in my house. Oh, and more barn doors down below.
I can't wait to go and see more homes tomorrow.
