House Miscellanea

Tuesday, May 29th, 2007

So I'm the proud owner (well co-owner) of a fantastic house! The closing was pretty simple, we just signed our live away for 30 minutes on countless sheets of paper, and we even got the keys at the end!

Moving day was pretty awesome. The weather was perfect for moving: sunny and 70s. When I went to Budget to get the truck that morning I was think thinking it was way bigger than we needed. We got a 24 foot truck for our move from the City to Brighton and almost filled it all up, but without layering too much. This time my dad took care of playing tetris with all the boxes and packed that truck as much as we could. When the truck was absolutely stuffed, we had to use Rachelle's father's and brother's pickup trucks, my parent's minivan, my Cherokee, Rachelle's Accord and her mom's car. It was a zoo but we got everything packed and over in 1 trip and in about 2.5 hours. We were a little slower in unloading though...

I'm slowly getting things done and to my liking (network jacks in the office, cable tv run to the laundry room, locks all keyed alike) and Rachelle is busy picking out paint colors (even though I think white is fine). We're really lucky the place was in such nice condition, we didn't need to do anything for it to be livable. That makes it much easier to concentrate on tweaking things to the way you want them. I'll put some pictures of soon.

#1 - May 30, 2007 at 6:12 AM in laundry room? Must be nice. I guess you plan on spending a lot of time doing laundry. You will be painting that place for the rest of your life there. Good luck with the house. Email me your address when you get a chance.

The laundry is on the first floor right off the kitchen. So when we get a small kitchen table soon we can sit in the kitchen eating dinner and watching the tv that is on the shelf in the laundry area.

That makes sense. I thought you were a little crazy there for a minute.
I want TV in my kitchen but the only extra TV we have is a 20 something year old 20 something inch behemoth. I don't think it'll just fit on the counter.

:) We already have 1 guest bed (queen) and have been offered another from a co-worker, so you'll have a choice of beds.

Ah...choice of beds. Must be nice. Don't let that get out. You'll have everyone staying there!
