Post Move Pics

We've been in our new home since 7/3. Lots of progress in the unpacking, but still far to go ...

Looking at the main room as you first see it when you enter from the front hall

On Wednesday, we got all the stereo components hooked up so we can now fill the shelves in the entertainment center. The glass front cabinet is new. We bought it at a teak place that's going out of business.

My office has become a box dumping ground. The office chair arm was a casualty of the move. Can't use a rolling chair, though, at my desk. The floor is sloped so the chair rolls away from the desk when you sit down!

This room was once the main entrance to the school. The gray wall covers the double doors that were once there. It's home to paintings for now. We're getting an IKEA wardrobe for the right-hand wall. I picked up that teak wall unit off of Craigs list just before we moved.

The Hoyer lift we used for transferring Skip until we had the lift installed on Wednesday (yay!).

Long, skinny storage room. We're going to put 2 more courses of shelves above these for things we hardly ever use.


Skip's spot in the living room. She can back her chair in. It's a great spot, at the intersection of the two a/c vents blowing air into the room from about 10' up. The dogs can get up on the bed on the table to the right. There's a ramp going up to it from behind.

Looks like a really nice place. I get the impression you will both be happy there.

Cranky, I'm just catching up here, after being gone for a week with the new grandie. Love, love, love your new place!! You'll soon have it pulled together and you and Skip will enjoy it. I especially like the old brick showing through, the bead board, that half window -- oh, I'm such a sucker for all the old grandeur! Good luck in the new place and keep sending pix!
Peace,
Muff

Cranky said...

Light - I agree with you on both counts.

Muffie - we love the old character of the place, too. Thanks for saying "bead board." I didn't realize that's what the grooved boards on the wainscotting were called. Good incidental learning for today. I love the wainscotting. It's particularly great in the big hallway outside our bedroom, where the wood is still unpainted. I'll include a picture of that next time I post snaps.

Moving is daunting, but it seems to be coming along bit by bit. It really is a lovely place with wonderful old school character - pun intended.

Cranky said...

Webster - thanks!

Very pretty, love the gas stovetop!!

Patrick said...

How has getting out and about been? Urban vs suburban? Unless MS short term memory loss is becoming contagious wasn't moving about country mice moving back to being city mice?

Caregivingly Yours, Patrick

Mazel Tov, as my people are wont to say, on the new casa. Many more happy years in comfort and prosperity. Jeez, I'm doing the whole Jewish benison today...

Cranky said...

Sherry - thanks. I know, gas is a "must have" in my book.

Patrick - being in the city has been mostly positive. I think that's a good subject for a future post.

Gary - today's incidental learning: the meaning of "benison." Thanks for the blessing!

Andy (awb) - saw your message in email but now here, not sure why it didn't post.
