Having acquired a home (yay!), Mike and I now need to make it habitable. Â 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. Â In particular, Mike is starting work on the garden/back yard, and I’m trying to figure out the garage. Â 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. Â 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. Â We’re going to measure all the rooms today so I can play around with furniture layout, etc. in Visio. Â 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. Â 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. Â I have nine days left before the entry deadline, and have woven 4.5 yards. Â I’m going to see if I can get another 3.5 yards woven in those nine days, making Â an eight-yard piece total. Â 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. Â It will be tight, but probably do-able. Â And I think that will finish off the Infinite Warp. Â (Hallelujah!)
The last of the contractors (painters, plumber) are coming on Tuesday to give us estimates and timeframes. Â After that, we’ll know approximately when we can move in. Â 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.
