It’s been a hot minute since I posted anything over here in my little corner of the web, but I am so excited to say we are moving back to Cambridge from Toronto. Toronto?! you might ask. Last you heard, we were in the big CA! But then last spring, I was accepted into a Masters program up here in the Great White North. So Northwards we came!
But now, we’re coming back! I’ll be starting my Ph.D. at Harvard in the fall (VERITAS!) and Parker’s got good things in the works too. But honestly, what we are both looking forward to is a serious revamp of our place. See, we found the perfect apartment. But it needs a little lovin’!
As we go through the place, I’ll refer back to this floor plan to help us out. OK, here we go!
When you come into the front door, you walk into the kitchen. We’re psyched about the quality appliances and the space! And we are counting down the seconds until we can paint those cabinets.
Let’s head back to the bedroom, which is through a pocket door from the kitchen. The previous owners left these big IKEA Pax units. They are in great shape, but we wonder if we need that much of our floor space taken up by storage? We really have very little stuff.
The bathroom is the room with the most potential for improvement. From the ancient washer and dryer, to the hilariously shallow almond acrylic tub, we’re going to be looking for some solutions in here for sure.

Now back up through the kitchen to the study. We are heavily contemplating some demo to remove the wall between this room and the kitchen to open the whole place up. But for now, it will be a great place to get some work done, even with its strange shape.
View from the kitchen:
Looking at the window; shared wall with kitchen (whose days are numbered?) is on the right.
We can’t wait to give everything a coat of white paint! More about that soon. We’ve got a month until we move, so lots of time to plan!
