Shifting In / Shifting Out • Kath Eats

Right here is a photograph dump of pics from our transfer from our essential home that’s getting renovated to our rental cottage the place we’ll keep for the following 5 months!

Packing Up

Now that we’re settled into our rental home and the primary home building has began, I really feel such a aid! Whereas that is all very thrilling, the entire technique of shifting out was not one thing I used to be wanting ahead to. However we survived!! 

Part of me is aware of that the toughest a part of all of that is going to be the month of August after we are in between houses and sofa browsing, a choice we made to save lots of (plenty of) cash.

We’ll be going to my mother and father’ home for the primary half of August and presumably dwelling with Thomas’s mother and father, associates, or one other shorter time period rental till or renovation is full. After all I hope the home shall be prepared forward of schedule, however everyone knows that can undoubtedly not occur! 

However our basement nonetheless has numerous area to obtain the entire objects we delivered to the rental, after which a minimum of it’s going to all be underneath one roof ready for us to maneuver all of it again upstairs!

Right here’s a photograph dump of pics from final week as we packed up one home and settled into one other. 

Wednesday: Shifting Out

Final Wednesday was the primary evening we have been planning to sleep on the cottage, in order that imply all of our private objects made the transfer that day. I additionally took the entire bedding off and made positive every part was out of drawers and closets earlier than the movers got here the following morning. 

“Don’t neglect me!”

“Acquired you Gus!”

Shifting Into The Cottage

I took tons and many masses over of unfastened objects in laundry baskets and luggage. I unpacked every load as I took it over so the home instantly felt settled (apart from Thomas’s garments which took perpetually to get put away! Ha!)

Having a truck is the very best factor ever!

The toughest a part of shifting in was we did a sofa swap. We put the cottage sofa within the again bed room and introduced our mattress cozy sofa into the lounge. Positively the fitting name! 

It’s been enjoyable to have one-level dwelling! Going into Birch’s room at nighttime is a lot simpler with out stairs. Gus is loving no stairs too! And I like having a washer/dryer steps from my bed room. That is all making me rethink our everlasting three-story home….!

How cute is that this entrance porch!?

I feel we want just a little playhouse for again right here….

Night time One

Many due to Thomas’s mother and father who picked up Birch from faculty and had him for an in a single day sleepover. Thomas and I labored till dinnertime, showered, after which went downtown for some refreshing margs and dinner at Passiflora. 

We even snuck in a lunch date at Botanical the following day. Tremendous useful since we tried to maneuver the least quantity of meals attainable so the fridge was naked! 

Thursday: Movers Day

On Thursday Thomas met the movers at 8:15am. Two Males and a Truck did an important job! The two.5 hours they spent shifting all of our tremendous heavy and hulking furnishings price us $525 + ideas. We’ll need to do it once more after we transfer again in. However there was no method we may have accomplished this ourselves. The one factor apart from our sofa that isn’t within the basement is our eating desk, which is in our neighbor’s’ basement. 

I’m truly actually happy with how nicely every part match into the basement. My greatest want was that every one closets and drawers have been accessible and they’re! And our household room continues to be playable too. The visitor room is even sleepable if Thomas must sleep there within the remaining stretch of the reno in August. 

All of the beds and bedding!

Get To Work

Thomas wasted no time getting the home prepped for demo.

Whereas I carried our final remaining kitchen provides downstairs and Eileen did some mopping (haha), Thomas taped the fireside off, porch flooring, and had his plumbers there inside an hour taking down fixtures. He even had our vary bought on shifting day! 


I’ve so many feelings about seeing this home empty. It’s not goodbye; it’s simply goodbye!! 

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
