Well, the house is almost completely packed. Well, it feels like that since my living room is stacked full of boxes and my kitchen is completely done. (Except for one drawer of silverware) The garage is even more packed with boxes than the living room!
We were supposed to close escrow yesterday, but still no news. Waiting for the buyer's lender to release funds so that we can close on the Three Rivers property. It's really coming down to the count. We are scheduled to move next Friday and I have to be back to work on the following Monday! That means that I will be in school most of next week getting my room ready. I'm having a hard time getting motivated to do anything at school because all I can focus on is moving.
Here's what's left of my sewing room...
And this will be my new sewing room! Unfortunately, there really aren't any walls in this room. Every wall has either cabinets or windows. The one wall that has a bit of space happens to have a water spigot near the bottom, so you can't put anything against that wall. I may put my folding cutting table in front of that.
It looks kind of HUGE in the picture, and it is huge for a laundry room, but when I think of setting up a table and machines, I don't think it is actually as big as it looks in these pictures. The cabinet you see in the back corner behind the exercise equipment will be my fabric cabinet. It is actually smaller than the one I have now, but deeper. The shelves arent very wide, but they are probably 24" deep, so I will have to find a way to fold my fabric differently to get it to fit and so that I can see everything.
Also, I am going to have to store the dog and cat food containers in here since leaving food outside attracts bears and raccoons. There is a small closet on the back patio and I'm wondering if it would be safe to keep the dry food in there. I will have to ask the neighbors what they think. Any of you have experience with storing dry animal food in an area where bears sometimes visit? They say they havent seen any this year, but usually do have bears come into their yards a couple of times during the summer. Summer's not over yet and its been a really dry summer for us. I won't be surprised to see some bears in August.
We have decided to paint the new house before we move in. Who knew that painting was SO expensive! It would have been cheaper for me to take two months off of work and do it myself!! Still, I think I would be too afraid to paint the ceiling of a two story house!
