Our New House in Lake Elmo

We finally signed the papers for the new house in Lake Elmo. We almost didn’t close because the relocation company hadn’t signed their HUD settlement paperwork. That’s a piece of paper that tells everyone how much they owe and what credits they have.

Most of the things in our apartment have already been moved over to the new house. Tomorrow we return the apartment keys.

Here are some pictures of the new house. It needs painting to match our taste better but we don’t need to do it right away.

The House

The Entryway - to the left is the living/dining room

The Kitchen

The Screened-in Porch

The Screened-in Porch has skylights

The Door to the Deck from the Screened-in Porch


The Family Room off of the Kitchen

The Master Bedroom has 2 huge closets

Balcony off of the master bedroom

View from the master bedroom balcony

We were quite surprised to see that we had a lake view as it was not mentioned anywhere. We’ll be trimming a few trees to get more of the lake view.

Main floor guest room

It’s a little odd that the guest room is tiled to match the tiles in the main floor bathroom. Across from the guest room is a two-person shower – again, another surprise as we hadn’t noticed it when we first viewed the house.

A tree house for the young at heart

The sellers left us champagne with 2 glasses

We’ll have to christen the house with this champagne much as one would christen a boat.

We also have deeded access to a lake. It’s a small area but it’s sandy so one can go and sit, swim or take a canoe out in the lake. Or — one could fish.

Now we wait for our furniture to arrive from Seattle in 10 days or so.
