The first blog of 2014 has to be the " Renaissance of Condo 4B".  We purchased our first condo at Bend of the River development about 2 years ago.  We have so enjoyed our life here that the opportunity presented itself to improve our life here.  So, we sold our one bedroom unit and purchased a two bedroom, two bath unit on the water.  We now have "water front property". 

 We now have the water about 50 yds. from our door with a view east and west along Lake Barkley(Cumberland River).
So we have embarked on the complete remodeling of Unit 4B. Being a condo, this entails the interior of the property.  We are removing everything except the Sheetrock, including appliances and other fixtures.  We have the services of expert electrician, painter and floor covering specialists.  I want to let all know that Lowe's Store offers all veterans a 10% discount on all purchases, a significant savings.  We have invested significantly at Lowe's and enjoyed the discount. 

Our lake view offers every changing water and views.

Sunset view with tow boat cruising by.  All these pictures were taken from our back door fronting on Lake Barkley.  The prime reason for locating here and living with "new" water. 
Living room with inherited furniture.  Stone fireplace is good and will remain.
View to dining room area prior to renovations.  Behind the curtain is the great view we purchased.  The condo is just a place to enjoy the view, as shown above.

Everyone will enjoy the faux distressed cabinets.  We are replacing all appliances, floor and counter tops. The cabinets will be painted and new hardware installed. 

We have plans for unit 4B to be our new Home, with the sale of our current dwelling maybe this summer.  Relocating to the Lakes area has been a long term plan and hopefully it will be a reality this year. 

This concludes the "before tour".  We will try to keep the blog updated as we proceed.  I am sub-general contractor, always under the guidance of the General Contractor, Denise.

Happy sailing,

Denise, Barry, Bella and Bailey.
