Since today is June 1st and I get my apartment on June 1st, I went and picked up my keys today. I also took one assorted box over to get started with the move. 🙂
I went over with a measuring tape to get some idea of where everything will go and to decide if everything will even fit. It is a good thing I’ve still got 2 weeks before I move in to figure things out. The floor plan I got from the site is close, but has differences for some of the measurements and layout – just slight – but enough that I will have to make changes on where I had decided some things will be.
Of course I took my camera with me and have pictures of all the rooms from different angles. I guess I’ll have to take more pictures once I have furniture in it.
Starting tomorrow, I will be taking Chester with me when I go, so he gets used to the areas we will be walking, as well as the new living space.
My view isn’t great – I see the parking lot. BUT, in the winter when it is -30C, I can start my car from inside and it will be nice and warm by the time I get downstairs.
This picture above is one where I will have to make new plans. The floor plan made it look like it was a longer space and I was thinking my china cabinet would fit beside the cupboards. It will fit – but it would be tight and too close to the patio door (which opens at the wall). Instead I may put a plant stand there.
The weather forecast for tomorrow does not include rain (finally) so hopefully Chester and I can do some exploring on a walk or two when we go there with another box or something after work.
