Ramon and I spent the last two weeks in Oakland, packing up the final remnants of our stuff, meeting with various contractors, and picking out paint colors. White walls, white countertops, white everything is what Bay Area house buyers are looking for, apparently. Which doesn’t completely work for our house since we have so much woodwork, but we are trusting that our real estate agents know what they are talking about and going with white as much as we can. The stager thought the white trend had something to do with the Apple stores.
We’ve lived more than three years in this house on Spanish Flat with furniture and artwork that we inherited from the previous owners. It’s nice to now have our own things around us that we carefully selected and gathered over the years. The house now feels like our own.
We have a few things brewing this week regarding the progress of the permitting process, but I don’t want to divulge details until things are more concrete, so stay tuned for an update next week of where things stand.
