Prepping for New Floors

Prepping for New Floors

Last week, I had to get everything ready in the house for the new floors. This meant emptying shelves of their contents, taking down decorations and other breakable things, and moving as much furniture out of the way as possible.

I also got a storage unit near the house, and had movers help me move some of the couches and other large items that will ultimately be replaced into the storage unit, which buys me time to figure out what to do with them. Several of them ended up in the basement, replacing older, more worn out items that then went to the storage unit.






Finally, I had to carry in all of the new wood so it could have at least 72 hours in the house to acclimate to the temperature and humidity before being installed. Four pallets later, the garage was clear and I’d gotten a good workout in! I also finally got my fourth parking spot back in the garage, so once the floor installation is done I can move the Mercedes back in from the guest house.
