I’ll leave it to Katie to fill you in on the details, but the quick update is that we finally moved into the apartment. After 48 hours of airing the place out (fortunately there are a lot of windows to allow for a good breeze), and some major steam cleaning (sofas, pillows, both mattresses, and the carpet for the second time), the place doesn’t smell like smoke. At least not much. There’s a little lingering smell, but we’re hoping our new ionizing air purifier can take care of that. So far it seems to be doing a good job. So it’s with great relief that we are now spending our first night in the apartment.
The main thing worth mentioning right now is the view from this place. I just took these photos a couple minutes ago and I still can’t believe this is the view from our living room.
