Well I don’t know about you but I’m glad the weekend is over!
We spent pretty much the whole time packing, lifting, hauling, stumbling down flight after flight of treacherous stairs…moving all our crap out of the apartment.
But hooray, because we finished!
We’ve been sleeping in our new home for a few nights.
It’s so quiet…no trains…or Harley Davidson next door Saturday night ALL NIGHT party!!!
Anyway, I’ve already made some changes to our new home and can’t wait to share some pics with you.
Remember Maddie’s closet?
(BTW, I really appreciated all of your great suggestions!)
This is how I took care of it.
We need every inch of storage space in this house and there’s like 3′ of wasted space behind that door.
I will come up with a more permanent fix later…
Right now we just need to get stuff put away. It’s a little overwhelming!
We’ve decided that the first project is the Master Closet (instead of my workshop).
It’s just useless without bars or shelves.
This is my closet until I complete that project.
But I can’t start on any projects just yet, because we are going to epoxy our garage floors before we do anything else.
Which means that we had to move everything out of the garages and into other spaces!
We are hiring a painter to do the Epoxy. Yeah! It’s too hot and I’m kinda over the Do-Everything-Myself phase.
It’s a good thing to because I really need to get this house organized and put stuff away.
The problem is, we don’t have anywhere to put anything away.
The problems with building built-ins in every house is every time you move, you have to build
something else before you can put anything away!
Maybe this time I’ll just build some freestanding bookshelves…
They probably wouldn’t fit in the next house and I like the look of furniture that is built exactly for the spot it’s in.
So this is how we live until I can get some new built-ins built!
It just goes on and on…
Why do we have so much crap?
