I am so happy for you Cathy. I find it incredible that you were able to find a perfect house and shop/garage for you and your husband. That is a dream and isn't something that is easy to find. Studies have shown that often we call it downsizing but we actually mean just rearranged. Happy Moving!

Thanks everyone!

DH and I went and looked at flooring today. I'm leaning towards vinyl plank, and am waiting for a quote from one place. We'll do the install ourselves so that will save some.

Here are some pictures of the area I'll be converting. I'm going to leave most of the cabinetry as it it.

This room is 17' wide. There are three couches in the living room in this picture.

And looking back towards the kitchen and main entry.

My LA will go in the bedroom - don't need to make room for it in the "living room" area.

Wow, things really happen fast sometimes, don't they? Very happy for both of you and hope when you're ready to sell your current home, that happens as quickly!

Must be meant to be - congratulations! Cant wait to see your dream come true!

You mentioned looking into some vinyl plank flooring - we have it and absolutely love it! We went with Mannington Adura Luxury flooring (high end vinyl planking). It wasnt inexpensive, but well worth it and we went with having it professionally installed because... hey, we’re getting older! We had it installed in 2016 and it looks just the same today as it did then! We have 3 high energy little dogs always zooming around the house so it was extremely important to us that the flooring could handle it and is easy care. Not intending to be a commercial for the floor here, but wished we knew somebody who had it just for reference since flooring of any kind is a considerable investment! Anyway, we’re happy!

Wow, it sounds like it will work out so nice and lots closer to work too? Closer to work means home sooner and more sewing time! Nice, can't wait to see the final play room!
