Moving is not easy

A few months ago Jo and I decided that we'd like to sell our house of 21 years and buy another in town that would be our forever home. In 21 years, you collect a lot of stuff.

Too much stuff as it would turn out.

Since we hadn't done it in a very long time, I'd forgotten just how big a pain in the rear moving is. So, on top of all of our house stuff, I had 3 cars to move. One of which, Betty, was in parts all over the garage. Most of it was already in boxes, bagged and tagged. But a lot was kept in a cabinet on shelves. Those many parts would need to be carefully boxed up and cataloged. That takes more time than you think!

SO, there was also the matter of having actually DOWNSIZED on the garage. Yeah, dumb on my part, but I planned to build another garage next to this house just for housing the newly restored Betty.

The problem is that the car was not ready and neither was I. 

 

Caleb to the rescue as he would be repainting Betty and since we were now NOT in a big hurry, could store her at his shop until we were ready! Perfect.

 

So, boxes packed and everything made it to the new house safe and sound. All that's left to do is get all of my new shelves built so I can get all of these parts off the ground which will free up space in the new garage for both of the other cars! 

 

I like it when a plan, you never planned for, but none the less comes together.

That house is gorgeous!  

 

We've been in our house now for 19 years.  We will probably stay for a while, but we also know that we probably will leave it someday, and that will be a mental, physical, and emotional challenge.

Ha! The Trogdon house!? We very nearly put in an offer but it seems life had other plans for us. Glad it went to another 2002 owner! Don’t change a thing!

We're loving the house. Only problem is we're going to need more garage space. It was this house that first made me think I'd have to put either the 911 or 2002 up for sale. Fortunately, we'll be able to build another garage (oversized one car) next to this on the hill. So...hopefully I'll be posting about that soon enough.

Wonderful. Don't take me literally when I said don't change anything. As I understand it, a lot of care went into getting that property listed as historic, but even the original architects added that second floor master and rad sauna. Sure some purists will grumble but the nice thing about this forum is there's a whole second category of people that restomod things to taste.
