Dale, Ryan and Justin did much of the super heavy lifting and shimmied some pretty awkward pieces of furniture up the stairs. The rest of us schlepped box after box up and down the stairs. What a workout!
We wrapped up around 3pm and crashed on the couches and enjoyed a beverage and some snacks. And Caryn helped me make the bed which was an awesome idea because when I fell asleep on the couch around 8:00, there was little that would have motivated me to make the bed at that point.
So, the good news is that we are all in, partially unpacked, especially in the kitchen. We've spent our first night in our new bedroom and cooked our first real meal in the kitchen (flank steak with carmelized onions and balsalmic reduction-yum!). We've moved all of our clothes into the new closet and took delivery of the new dining room table. We picked up our three new favorite chairs for the counter, a gift from Caryn. And we changed the locks--a sign that we're done with the contractors. The old place is spic and span and ready for it's new owner.
Here are a few of the "after" pictures from the move:
