WEEK 23 Part 2 Remodel a House and Don’t Divorce or Die Doing It.


Now let the games begin...

Three trucks pulled up each loaded down with crates.  My stomach was churning as it always does just before the unloading begins.  You just never know how the inside of the crate is going to look when it is opened.  My stuff has been sitting in storage for nearly 6 months and before that it had travelled from Hawaii to Texas.

Here goes...

The first two crates are opened and our stuff looks intact..

George mans the item check off list while I direct where to put our stuff.  Since I don't want all the boxes unpacked and they only have to unwrap the furniture, it should move along quickly..

In a blink of an eye we have 2 crates unloaded and on our third..

No. 4  No major problems so far..

Zipping right along..

Six Crates Emptied now time to pull up the second Truck around ...will we be so lucky..

I spy with my little eye...MY MATTRESS   Do you think anyone would mind if I quit and took a
These guys are keeping up the pace...

Oh Shit..PLEASE, PLEASE let my Grandfather clock be in one piece

sigh of made it..

Now  this crate is not looking so good. 
The contents look like they have shifted, I guess I will find out if anything is broken when I unpack..

More crates to empty...

Now that there has been 14 crates emptied it is time for some lunch. 
 I nip round to Little Caesar's and pick up five 
Hot and Ready large Pepperoni Pizza...
They are only $5 each ...what a deal...

Then it was time to get back to the last of the crates...
Don't know where this showed up from since I have never seen it before..

I have a large oversized couch in this cardboard box..not holding out much hope but we will see.

Holy Smoke the boxes are all the way to the ceiling..

My little ole Office I think...

My new wooden floors took a beating when they unwrapped the large pieces of furniture. I guess the moving company will have to come out and take a look and figure out how to repair them.  My couch is in one piece.

Can't find the box with all the parts to the furniture (feet, screws, bolts, etc)

Glad no one will be sleeping in this room

Our room is not so bad..

Another bedroom packed to the hilt..

This room and our bedroom are the only ones we can actually move in..yikes..

Outside the back door..
There is a method to my madness having all this put outside.

More out in the shed...

Even George's Mancave got filled..oopsy..

After these guys left

We managed to clear the floor in the office..

and make some space in the Family room..

It has been a long day and time to call it a night.
I can hear my bed calling my name.

The only thing I have learned

or as George's would say
TOO Much Shit...
until next time.  If I survive..

WEEK 23 Part 1 Remodel a House and Don’t Divorce or Die Doing It.

Week 23  Part 1 24 Oct thru 27 Oct 2011

What a great way to start the week especially for me..a wonderful hot bubble bath in my new tub.

George got home and it was back to work. Time to install the Kitchen Extension Cabinets.

         We also got some molding up in the family room ceiling and floor

Then onto installing new vent.

I was the laborer today..hold this, cut that…you know the drill.. Glad the day is over

Today I am my own boss.

Today is going to be all about Paint, Stain and Sealers

I started off the day painting more molding..

Then it was onto the first coat of stain on the guest bathroom ceiling. Still not quite on board with the stain effect but George really prefers that to paint. What the man wants the man gets.

Not really but this is the only time he has fussed about a design.

Cleaned and sealed the last remaining mosaic.

George came home and completed the molding in the family room and office

and installed the light in the laundry.

Today we focused on the Master bedroom on anticipation of getting a bed to sleep in real soon…a matter of Days…yippee

We had to fix the molding on the ceiling and baseboards

Then I cleaned the floors with the recommended wood cleaner

Put our new bed frame in place

and finish the closet organizer.

Today we have to get floor space cleaned and tools put away..we are one day away from our Household goods being delivered…

I packed up our clothes in the Man cave

Cleaned the Family Room

Put tools in cupboards and tried find a place to put all this crap before tomorrow…

It has been a long hard day and I am cutting this week’s blog short because tomorrow we will be shifting gears from Remodeling to Chaos…

The end of a busy few days

What I have learned

I love, Love, Love my Bathtub

I am excited and dreading tomorrow all at once.

It has been a long journey to this point

but we still have a steep climb ahead of us….

Until Next Time..
