Having acquired a home (yay!), Mike and I now need to make it habitable. Aside from adding a dishwasher, we can’t do much with the inside of the house, since we’re having it repainted and refloored, so we’re focusing on the outside and the garage. In particular, Mike is starting work on the garden/back yard, and I’m trying to figure out the garage. We’re planning to make a woodworking studio for Mike, a weaving studio for me, a weightlifting workout area (ideally with room for a power cage), and oh yes, store all the random stuff that is in our current garage. Fortunately it’s a large garage, but that’s still quite a bit of arranging.
I’m also working on schematics for the rest of the house. We’re going to measure all the rooms today so I can play around with furniture layout, etc. in Visio. I’ve already worked out the layout for my sewing studio; now I need to figure out the master bedroom, living room, and dining room. Knowing where everything goes will allow the movers to position the furniture for us.
Amidst all of this, I am still working on the yardage for the CNCH yardage gallery. I have nine days left before the entry deadline, and have woven 4.5 yards. I’m going to see if I can get another 3.5 yards woven in those nine days, making an eight-yard piece total. Eight yards at 22″ wide is approximately the same as four yards 45″ wide, which ought to be enough for the recipient to make something nice of it. It will be tight, but probably do-able. And I think that will finish off the Infinite Warp. (Hallelujah!)
The last of the contractors (painters, plumber) are coming on Tuesday to give us estimates and timeframes. After that, we’ll know approximately when we can move in. I’m guessing it will be at least two weeks for painting and another two weeks for flooring, so we’ll be moving sometime between late May and mid June.
