And, so, for the curious – THE CRATE:
Our moving guys were quite professional and super-nice. The driver introduced himself, shook our hands, and then introduced the three guys working with him. Once the crate was open, they immediately got to work bringing all our boxes into the house. I checked off each box as it left the truck, and Darren directed the movers where to place each box as it came in.
The living room was filling up fast!
The sleeper couch had to be brought over the balcony, as it was too long for the staircase. No problem!
Once everything was in, the unwrapping began…
The movers unwrapped all the furniture, set up the bed, and placed everything else. They were very careful, and nothing was scratched or dented –including the walls. It all took about 3 hours.
Then Darren and I got to work on the rest of the boxes. We started in the living room first,
then the kitchen,
and finished the day working on the built-in bookcase in the living room. We decided to go for an “organized disorganization look”.
The next day, Darren worked on setting up the electronics in the living room, as well as sorting out the rest of the boxes in the 2nd bedroom. We finalized that room and the closet through Thursday evening and the weekend, and hung up some pictures throughout the house. We were all done by Sunday!
The house is great – with all the storage, all of our things fit in very easily. It helps that we have a garage space, as well, where the bikes are stored, as well as the Christmas tree and some empty boxes.
