The Big Storage Unit Move

Today was our big move, getting lots of our boxed items transferred from our second floor over to a storage unit. Our goal is clear out our second floor as much as we possibly can, so that we can start to do more significant work on the floor and walls in the master bedroom, guest bedroom, and (eventually) our front office.

The Night Before the Storage Unit Move

Tomorrow morning, we have a crew of movers coming over to relocate all our boxes into a storage unit.

It’s part of our larger plan for the second floor, to literally clear out as much as we can… so we can start to do some serious work up here: ripping out the old floor, putting down insulation and conduit, adding new plywood, and also getting some walls set up.

Happy Eight Year Anniversary to Us!

Today marks our eight year anniversary, and we spent a little time after work just hanging out on our front steps. We shared a little bit of wine to celebrate, and also shared some tissue so we could blow our noses together.

Basement Painting is Dangerous Work

Though we were both a little tired from the work day (and were feeling 50/50 about hour “house night”), Liz and I sucked it up and suited up. We both were at work in the basement, with her painting and me clearing out the back area again.

Inside Outside House Day

The day shot by really fast. House days tend to do that. Even though we try to aim to finish by 3PM, we always go over – propelled by the momentum of the day. It’s a good and bad thing, as we put in a solid day… but spent most of the day working.

Debris Day (Bagster, Round 5)

It’s a funny thing – over the last few days, I’ve done a lot of research into dumpster rentals and disposing of things like concrete/brick/sand. You can’t just throw this out with the regular trash, as it all goes to a different place.

Adding Studs

On Sunday, Bob and I spent a good part of the day working in the basement – adding in studs to the support beam, and prepping for the wall that would enclose both the stairs and the bathroom.

Reboxing Our Boxes

Today, Liz and I spent the morning and afternoon tackling the second floor. We’ve decided to refocus our efforts on the second floor, and the best thing we feel is to clear as much space as possible.

Lunch Date at Revival Food Hall

Liz and I have had a “lunch date” on the calendar for something like 4+ weeks now. Things have been a little hectic the last month or so, but things finally slowed down enough to where we were able to meet up for a quick little get-together, downtown. She didn’t tell me where we were going, and just said to…
