Preparations …

Tools organized and ready to go: Check!

Trailer frame purchased, trailer built and painted: Check!

Miter Saw and Compressor staged: Check!

1400 Square Feet of Southern White Pine Flooring – Stained: Check!

Monday we will grab paint for the ceiling, walls, and trim as well as a few more last minute items. Additionally, we will pick up a few apple and pear trees, and more brambles. They will take a few years to get established, so we would like to get started sooner rather than later. Tomorrow I hope to post a rough drawing and plan of the property. We are in the initial planning stages, so I am sure the plan will change.

We will try to keep the updates flowing every day to track our progress this week. Here is a rough agenda:

Monday: Purchase paint and last minute supplies.  Take our first load of “stuff” to the farm (Tools and supplies). Arrive at the property in the afternoon. Get the dogs temporary fencing setup. If there is time, start removing carpet and trim.

Tuesday:  Second load to the farm (most, if not all, of the flooring). Remove remaining carpet and trim. Paint ceilings throughout the house and start cutting in the walls.

Wednesday: Third load to the farm. Finish cutting in and get the walls painted. Get all the trim painted while it is uninstalled.

Thursday: Forth load to the farm. Start flooring install: Kitchen, Dining Room, Family Room.

Friday: Fifth load to the farm. More flooring: Entry Way, Hallway, Taylor’s Bedroom, Guest Bedroom, and Master Bedroom.

Saturday: Six load to the farm. Finish up flooring, transitions, and reinstall trim.

Sunday: Move loads all day, last minute packing.

The move should happen on the following Monday or Tuesday. We also have a pretty good punch list to work on, which I will try to fit in as I go. The next week will also bring some planting (brambles, trees, etc.).

Finally, I am wrapping up a day of preparations, check lists, and visits to reclaimed material stores with a super fun and always rewarding sore throat!! Yeah!!
