I Got the Keys

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.
