We are now homeowners in the UK!

Yes, the pile of paperwork, a pile of cash, and far too many hassles are over and we finally have the keys to our new flat in Fulham. smile_teeth  thumbs_up  smile_party

We have quite a few photos uploaded – you’ll need to guess at which room is which though. Here’s some info to help understand the photos and to know more about what we just bought:

  1. It is the 1st floor (2nd floor for the Americans), which means someone lives below us.
  2. There is a loft, so it is a 2 story home (the main floor with the loft above it)
  3. There are 3 bedrooms: 2 on the main floor plus the loft
  4. The room near the road is the lounge/living-room and is the only one where you really hear any road noise
  5. There are 2 bathrooms: 1 on the main floor with a tub, one in the loft with a standing shower
  6. The kitchen leads to spiral stairs that go down to the garden
  7. A woman lived in it during and since WWII and we bought it off of the guy who bought it from her. He gutted it, built the loft, put in a new kitchen, new garden, new carpet, and paint while also fixing all the cracks and other things that appear in a place after almost a hundred years. I think it was built in the 1920s.
  8. Milo loves the carpet since he doesn’t slip on it like our current hard wood
  9. It is 1313 square feet – bigger than our houseboat and our cottage that we had in the US!
  10. It’s about two and a half blocks closer to the Thames, which means it’s closer to Bishops Park too.
  11. It’s roughly where the A219 number appears on this map:

    Daisy likes it too!  She even picked out her sleeping area.  Good toast to the new house!
