An update on la Tiffani II

I think I mentioned that we have received one notice of delay for our move-in date to our new condo, la Tiffani II.  The new date is July 23, 2012.  The 20 day delay isn't really a big deal, and after over a year-long wait I am hoping it will fly by.  We are able to catch a glimpse of our new condo every day, and believe me, I take note of the progress!  From what I can see, it seems to be coming along really well.

Back in late November, Derek and I were out for brunch with our friends in New Edinburgh, and on the walk home decided to get an up-close-and-personal look at our soon-to-be home.

Here's what we saw:

This is the North facing side.  We face East towards the river.

The short, gray building to the right of the picture is the indoor pool.  

Even on a cold, dreary, November day the park across the street is inviting.

The paths are awesome for biking, roller blading and running.  And maybe one day pushing a baby stroller?

Here is the view of our condo from the park.

Across the river is our current building (the white one).
Kind of neat that we are just moving across the river and will still be able to see our current home.

Fast forward about 3 months and we find ourselves at the end of February.  Here is what we see:

I think that looks like pretty good progress for less than 3 months.  I can't wait to share pictures from the inside of our new home, looking out!  Hopefully there won't be anymore delays, and the pictures will be lush and green!


  1. I am excited too! :)

    From the outside, I could tell how nice the place is. I am definitely looking forward to your new photos - from the inside.


  2. Thanks Lisha! I try to be patient, but when I see the building every day it's all I think about! I tell my pregnant girlfriends (there are a few!) that it's like my own growing baby bump! I've been super impressed by your diy undertakings...Derek and I are so not handy, so the new-build condo was the way to go for us! Still, I love being inspired by all the home-renovators!

  3. I can't wait to see your new place! What furniture will you have ended up choosing? Will you have vignettes? Where will that beautiful knife set you have go?

  4. I can't wait to invite you over to the new place, Christine! I am not sure what furniture we will end up choosing - we will probably wait until we are all moved in and then see how things feel. I have big plans for that beautiful knife set...maybe it will be part of a vignette! xo

  5. Is it just me or does having a "knife vignette" sound wrong to you too? The new place will have a great feeling due to all the love that's gone into it :) can't wait!!

    1. hahaha - just wait, you will see! I can't wait, V!
