Day 5 @ the “new” house
Now that I am getting better I was able to finally start working on unpacking and getting the house set-up to live in. Well at least temporary until the basement is finished. Sorry, you will be hearing a lot about the basement, at least until it is finally completed.
I cleaned up our master bedroom, the bathroom and got rid of all the boxes. It actually looks like a regular bedroom. Yeah! Now we have to figure out where to put all the extra clothes that was in our walk-in at the house in Whitby. It’s a good thing I am not using all of my closest. At this house De-Ann and I have separate closests, but combined they aren’t as big as the walk-in at the old house.
I also cleaned up Faith’s room which looks great except that we still have to purchase some kind of railings to put on the bed so Faith can sleep on it without falling out. In the meantime she is sleeping in her play pen with all her stuffed fuzzy friends. Now I just need to put up some of Faith’s pictures on her walls.
Shawn’s room is empty except for a crib and a book shelf, but when he comes to our home permanently we will start to put things that will make his room his own. Oh ya, I need to get a closet organizer for his room because the former owners took the one that was in his closest with them…ya I thought it was weird too…but they did.
The kitchen is now functioal and De-Ann has done a fantastic job of purging all the things we don’t need or haven’t used in the last 4 years we were in Whtiby. Yeah De-Ann!
The dinning room is still a storage area, but today I took most of the day taking all the items out and organzizing them into corners of the room (De-Ann’s office & storage) by where they WILL go once [say it with me] “the basement is finished!” Oh ya, I also washed the floor in the dinning room.
The only room I wasn’t able to clean-up today was the garage, but I do know how I want to organize it. Probably will get to it next week slowly a little bit at a time. I really want to set-up my work bench and put my power tools in place. Can’t wait.
Well, that is day 5, can’t wait to update you on day 100, which I am hoping will be the description of our new finished basement.
