Moving Day

This past weekend I headed out to my friend Bethan and Chris's to help them move into their new house. For the past 6 months they have been living in a holiday trailer while they had a house moved onto their farm and fully renovated.

The house is just about complete, and it was to to get things moved in. There items had been packed into a SeCan trailer. It was packed right up to the roof and we thought that it was going to be a long job getting it all emptied out.

Most things just got thrown into the rooms and left to be sorted out later.

All of the kitchen items needed to be washed. So again things got stacked up, and the dish washer began to run non stop.

However, the kitchen is so beautiful! The tile work is unique and her cabinets are not only functional but really gorgeous. They are built to that no matter how hard you shut them, they do not slam shut. A pretty cool feature.

We did get a few of the rooms partialy set up. The sitting room got the floors washed, cow hide down, and the couches some what in place. After all we needed a place to sit and rest after all the heavy lifting we did!

We feature wall in the sitting room is a real stunner. All of the rocks are original, and there are even some neat features in it. There is a piece of pot ash built in, as well as three hammer heads that Chris's grandpa found and had built into the wall.

The last room that we got set-up is the dinning room. The boys kept hitting their head on the chandelier, so we figured that we had better get the table in place so that it was no longer a safety hazard.

The house is just about complete now. I will try to take some pictures of it once it is all completed. They sure did a great job with it. Much deserved for them after living in the holiday trailer for that long!
