October 3, 2006: Move in day!
- Amazingly, Gary of Shmoover Mover is the same person who moved me into Laning Chateau 3 1/3 years ago. This isn't Gary, though, but the other guy, who was really a riot and told all sorts of stories.
- Highly recommended for your bay area moves!
- They liked my Mexican chairs. Here you have Gary.
- I had an appointment at 3:30 and they were still moving things in, so I told them just to shut the door after they were done. When I came back, it was like a kid on Christmas morning, looking to see what was under the tree. This is what I found - box and furniture placement are those of the movers.
- Le bedroom
- Office (I did tell them before I left where I wanted the desk and bookshelf)
- It is with great happiness that I note that the microwave DOES fit under the cabinets.
- Table and mantle. By this point, I had moved the boxes to where I wanted them, and also moved furniture a bit.
- The TV will go on the 1939 sewing macine (that brown thing that looks like a table - the sewing machine is folded inside). The CD racks were 95% full back in my studio; I plan to get rid of half of the CDs so that A) it'll be easy to look for and find CDs and B) I'll have room for some new music.
- The chair didn't stay there long - I moved it into the office, where it serves as my desk chair. I think it lived in this spot for all of 5 minutes.
- The round pine table is where I work
- The exciting :-) placement of bedroom furniture: shelves for random stuff; wonderful clothes rack or whatever you call it ("never have to hang up today's clothes again!"); chintzy cheapo plastic and highly functional pseudo chest-of-drawers from IKEA
- I love the garage. Ladder, trolley and useful chair to climb on for reaching top shelves all came with!
- Shelves built-in along the back wall, and plenty of room on the side for free-standing shelves. Wire shelves on wheels had been in my kitchen at Laning Chateau, but here it'll be storage shelving.
- Toolboxes, power drills, and two boxes of screws and all that stuff now have an honorable home.
The purple bag and the black bag next to it are the earthquake/emergency supplies.
- The view of the house from INSIDE THE GARAGE! I know this looks like every other picture of the house I've taken.
