Well, I’m mostly moved in, though the bulk of my furniture has yet to be delivered, one of the toilets has a mysterious leak, and I’m still painting at my dining room table. Luckily, there is a gorgeous pool here with lovely tropical landscaping here, which has relieved some of my crabbiness at the slow furniture delivery and plumbing goblins.
At least my Internet got installed without a hitch!
Here’s the future nail cave/glitter storage/hobby room:
It’s a bit bigger than a large closet, but I’d like to think of it as “cozy.” The somewhat sad thing is, this is the maid’s room. Maids actually live in these. When the real estate agent told me that was the purpose, I felt really depressed. It’s separated from the living space, behind the kitchen and laundry room. It does have its own bathroom at least. I can fit myself, a desk, and some storage shelves. If it’s photo-worthy when I’m done, then I’ll post After pictures to go with the Before shot.
I’ve never worked in a space quite this small, but after living in Japan for as long as I did, I’m pretty sure I don’t have claustrophobia. I guess I’ll find out!
