Just a little sneak peek...

I have a couple of pictures that Carmen took of our new place, back when they first looked at it.  So just consider these "before" pictures :)  But I know some of you are dying to see what our Thai house is like so I thought I'd just post a couple of shots.

Its 'partially' furnished, so today (and this coming week) will be a busy time of shopping for the other necessities.  There is a bed in the master bedroom and a wardrobe; a dining table in the kitchen; a teak furniture set in the living room and the landlord is throwing in a fridge and TV to sweeten the deal (which is fantastic!).  We'll have to buy an oven, a washing machine, a bed for Callie, a desk and a few other things to get us started.  But, its a good start!

Here's the living room, as you come in the front door...

This is the kitchen, just off of the living room/laundry nook....

And here's our cute (and in much need of an overhaul) little backyard, just off the kitchen...

The landlord is having the place cleaned and the yard done for us today.  So, we should be able to move in tomorrow (Sunday) which will be great!  We're going to do a bit of shopping today and hopefully find Callie a bed (at the very least).  They actually have 'yard sales' up here in Chiang Mai too so we might get out to do a bit of hunting for deals as well :)

So there's the sneak peek.  I'll add more pictures once we're moved in.  Happy Saturday everyone!

Wow, even though this doesn't look huge, it looks very nice.

Karl is somewhat jealous, "I'll never get a place this big in Japan!"

We're so happy for you...enjoy adding your "personal" touch to making it "yours".

My first thought, coming from my it's autumn in Saskatchewan mind, was, "Oh, it looks so cold!" and then I thought, um, yeah, they're in Thailand! All those bare floors will be very welcomed I'm sure! Can't wait to see what you do with it, Bon. Love you!
