When we first designed the project, I kind of expected it to end with a big moving day. I even fantasized about hiring movers for the first time in my life. Unfortunately, with Em’s injury set back, our altered timeline means our lease is up at our current place before we can move into the new one. The solution is to move all our stuff into storage at the new place and couch surf for a few weeks while we finish up the work. That means I’ve been hauling boxes, one car load at a time and storing them in the finished bedrooms. At the end of the month, we’ll uhaul all our furniture into the garage. Towards that end, our new house now hosts our most important possessions: board games and yarn.
