Moving!

Sat, 2015-07-25 18:02
Some quick house updates with pictures from twitter/g+:

The broken AC that I was very worried about turned out to be a small burnt out part that cost $88. Since I had visions of replacing $10k worth of AC, this was a huge relief.

The walls still have holes, although the cabling work is mostly done as is the plumbing. Drywall repair is going to be $$$ but we budgeted for that going in, so that's ok.

My friend A points out that we have lots of space for ceiling cats.

The wallpaper is gone by my hand, including the horrible painted over wallpaper. I declined to remove the cheerful wallpaper in the Harry Potter Room below the stairs because it amuses me.

I found some mildew in the drywall. It seems like everything's dry behind in the wall, so I'm hoping we can replace the insulation we ripped out and close it back up, but we'll probably have someone look at it first.

Alas, since the walls aren't closed yet, we can't get painters in. In the end, it's looking like I'll be painting the basement myself while John's out of town.

The carpet is gone, except for the living room.

Nothing's been done with the living room yet because it's full of boxes and we need somewhere to move them before the flooring guys can proceed.

The floors are going in now. We did some of the removal, but have hired folk to put in the new stuff. It looks great so far!

Not sure we'll have floors by the time the moving truck comes on Tuesday and deposits the remainder of our stuff in the new house, but our lease is up so we'll just have to deal!
