Closing on co-op (seriously, New York, why do you insist on making things stupid?) is in a week and four days.

Tomorrow I'm meeting with the contractor to go over the place one last time and make final decisions about the work that needs to be done versus what I want to do. So many ornamental things that could be done, so little money to do them in. And then there are money savers - I have no need of nor want for a granite kitchen counter, for instance, so I don't want him to spend the extra bucks on it. Soapstone or even stainless steel would work. This is a 1905 building, after all and I would love the inside to match the outside as near I can get it.

And hopefully before March my internship will start paying me as an employee so I can keep the place once I have it. llllll(-_-;)llllll

I really can't wait to see what you do with it!!!! :)

Soapstone is gorgeous (and so much easier to clean than granite) as is stainless. I think stainless would be gorgeous in that apartment. :) (And also easy to clean - forget stainless cleaning things, just use lemon juice!!!!)

Good luck with the internship - I'm crossing my fingers for you!
