The Move

We picked up keys to the house Monday the 17th and haven’t stopped running since! All the projects really stood out when the place was empty and each little bit of work we do brings up three more projects that have to go on the to-do list. I keep saying we’ll get everything done eventually, but Zach’s brother-in-law politely reminded us this week that home-ownership is a never-ending project. Thanks Bil.

So, here’s a quick photo recap of what we’ve done so far…

New Keys

Don’t recognize the vehicle? She’s new… Bessie Buttercup is now our main mode of transportation whenever we need to haul anything.

The first piece of furniture we moved in? Zach’s new desk. A danish teak piece we found at Lounge Lizard… our new favorite place to shop!

Project number one: Paint the living room. We liked the latte color that was in here, but in the evenings it felt really dark. So we stuck with the tan family and lightened things up a bit.

Had to get the painting done quickly so Zach and Seth could install the new built-in cabinets they made for us! Those guys were hard workers.

And of course, having the cabinets in meant the fireplace looked old and dirty… so we painted that too. See SOLD! for the living room before and after comparison…

And finally, some new shelves in the kitchen. I love that my Corningware matches the paint colors in there!

Yep, that’s right! The house (finally) closed and we’re actually moving! We don’t get keys until Monday, but I already started the packing today… the guestroom is in boxes and all ready to go. Who’s going to be our first visitor?

In the Concordia neighborhood, we’ll still be in northeast… a short bike ride from McMenamin’s Kennedy School and all the shops and restaurants in Alberta. Plus, just one block from Alberta Park – the dogs will be thrilled!
