My offer on the dream apartment was accepted!!! A mason confirmed that the cracks in the foundation were normal for a 1907 building and of not any structural concern, and the seller has agreed to fix all of the other issues in the inspection report, leave some of the fixtures and furnishings I liked, tile the laundry room floor, replace the cellar door to the outside, and build me a little storage space for my bike!
That’s not really my new home, I’m just goofing outside the hotel in Copenhagen last week. That’s my camera bag.
So now, comes the tricky part. In order to buy the place, I need permission from the Danish government. I don’t have a Danish bank account, and I can’t get one until I have a tax number, which I can’t get until I have a work permit, which I can’t get without a final contract, which has taken forever and a day.
I’m leaving Denmark tomorrow and I’m meeting with a mortgage broker this afternoon. My Danish contract starts May 1, which is also the scheduled closing date on the apartment. I’m drowning in details and logistics and it seems like like it’s going to take a miracle to get all of this lined up from halfway around the world.
I didn’t post photos of the dining room last time, so here you go…
The doorway to the living room has original pocket doors.
Did I mention how much I love the countertops?
And it has underfloor heating!!!
Its a stunning house! Just keep feeling the love your feeling when you see it or think of it and it will all happen for you. Keep the good vibes going in the right direction. I did that with mine. There were glitches and my bf wanted to stay there to work them out. I said no……this house is sold…..they really want in and I really want out. Its a done deal. It took a week after I left it to make it so but everyone involved busted their butts to do it. Get the champagne chilling. It will happen. Hugs and Good Luck!
I absolutely love it! Congratulations! I know everything will go well for you. Looking forward to hearing more about your new adventure!
gosh i’ve been catching up and am so excited for all that you are undertaking! best wishes to you and the incredibly life changing (and fulfilling) journey. xo
