Odds + Ends


floor protection

Since the floors are finished, it’s time to start moving in furniture! Needless to say, we are super excited. Over the moon kind of excited. We were at the storage unit last night assessing the mass of furniture that was once our cozy, two bedroom apartment, when I got a phone call from my dad saying he was going to come help us for a bit. The more the merrier when it comes to moving, right?! Five minutes later he pulled up in this beauty…

Two hours later, our storage unit was completely empty, and less than 2 hours after that, everything was unloaded into the middle of the living room floor. Obviously, we are excited about the furniture coming out of captivity, but we’re also fond of the idea of not shelling out $130 a month for storage. Later today (assuming Greg can get off from work a tad early), we are going to be unpacking, cleaning everything, and moving each piece of furniture into its permanent place.

To prepare for the moving in process, we picked up a roll of paper at Lowe’s for about $10 (it’s near the big plastic sheeting, not the painting drip cloth, like we originally thought), then used it to line the walkway from the back door to the hallway. This way, our new floors won’t get damaged in the moving process.

We also set up a “tool table” in the kitchen to have a designated area for tools, furniture pads, etc. while this chaos is in progress. Oh, and that’s our Christmas tree in the box in the corner. Can’t wait to decide where to put it!

I best get going and finish prepping the house for Operation: Move In!
