Scenes From The Move

September 12, 2011

Life changing!!!

Say goodbye to our darling Craftsman house, which we rented for a year. It helped us fall in love with Cville and had the best front porch a girl could ask for –

IMG_0426-3BlogIMG_0427-2Blog

I cleaned for hours as FAST AS I COULD! My goal was to not have to return after the moving truck left. I made it just in time!! Every room was wiped, swept, vacuumed and steam-mopped.

Hello new empty, freshly painted by fantastic Justin the painter new house!!

Doors will be painted white tomorrow!

Justin’s family owns the Jimmy Johns here in Cville and he brought us lunch!!

IMG_7042-2Blog

I had a veggie + cheese sub – lots of veggies and cheese!

Salt and vinegar on the side

IMG_7044-2Blog

Gobble gobble I was starved!!!

IMG_7043-2Blog

Highlight of my day: COMCAST CAME!! Within their time period. And we have internet!!

Lowlight of my day: washing 1,000 dishes.

Karen has convinced me that if a dish goes in a box, a roach poops on it. She washed every single dish of hers when she moved and I decided it would sure feel clean to do the same. Don’t think I’m gross for not doing that in the past! Wrapping paper is clean, right!?

IMG_0439-2BlogIMG_0441-2Blog

I own too many bowls!

IMG_0440-2Blog

But I have never owned a pot rack!!

IMG_0442-2Blog

Our empty house was soon a mess. A HUGE mess.

IMG_0444-2Blog

–> finished basement!!

IMG_0448-2Blog

–> Future brewery!!

IMG_0447-2Blog

I spent many nights worrying that the dining room table wouldn’t fit. Turns out it fits like a glove!

IMG_0443-3Blog

LAUNDRY ROOM!!

IMG_0450-2Blog

Other than the kitchen, Seamane came over to help with the move and we put together the master BR – so I can rest later tonight. It’s on its way to being so cozy!

IMG_0445-2Blog

Spare bedroom

IMG_0446-2Blog

Future guest room – to be painted!

IMG_0449-2Blog

Would it surprise you to hear that I had the kitchen put together enough to make dinner? I made the dinner I was supposed to make last night!

Our new dining quarters

IMG_7052-2Blog

On the menu: Spinach Noodles [from Whole Foods] coated in Krissy’s Clementine Cashew Butter (OMG!) along with snap peas, tempeh, shitake mushrooms and orange.

IMG_7055-2Blog

Matt said the clem-cashew butter on the noodles was the best nutty noodle sauce he’s ever had.

IMG_7061-2Blog

It was really really good. Slightly sweet, slightly orange and very creamy!

IMG_7059-2Blog

IMG_7054-2Blog

I was less tired and sore when I ran my half marathon last year. This move has totally wiped my out. My feet can barely stand and I’m so thirsty! Perhaps I should have been drinking Gatorade during my marathon of a day : )

Can’t wait to do it all again tomorrow!!

Looks great! Congrats on your big move. It feels great to be out of one place and into the next, doesn’t it?!? So excited for you guys! I love the colors you picked in your new house-they’re so happy and cheerful! Gorgeous :D I’m impressed you had the kitchen ready-it took us like 2 weeks to be able to use it. Though they were finishing the house around us so I guess that’s an excuse! They still are finishing the basement….I’m ready to wake up and have it be just us!

I can’t believe you got all that done in one day and were able to cook in there right away. I guess the movers help though in placing all the furniture. Holy cripes – you washed all the dishes?! Better you than me ;)

The different room colors look incredible and the house is looking so good.

I’m not sure how you got the kitchen in place so quick. I’ve moved a ton and it’s always a day or two before I can get squared away enough to get anything done. I think I’m just lazy!

“Highlight of my day: COMCAST CAME!! Within their time period. And we have internet!!” <– That rocks. The day after we moved in and ours was hooked up, it was the best thing! But it wasnt Comcast and said company did NOT come within the window. At all. As in, I waited around ALL day for them. Grr!

Congrats to you both, the house is beautiful! It’s fun to finally see the entire front of the rental house, I always had a picture in my head when you’d show the porch but it looked different than I imagined!
The comment about the roaches + Karen had my cracking up. I don’t think you’re gross at all to not have done that in the past. If I was moving across town there’s no way I would’ve washed all my dishes!

Where did you get the laundry hampers? It looks like they are canvas on hooks. I have velcro that just doesn’t seem to want to stay stuck. ;) I would love another option.

Thanks for bringing us along for the ride!

Mind if I ask how much your rent was for that house? I only ask because renting an entire house in several parts of California is SO EXPENSIVE… but still cheaper than paying a mortgage :)

I don’t really feel comfortable sharing the exact amount, but it was..between $1300 and $1700

woohoo for a smooth move! i bought bottles of gatorade for our friends that helped us with our move in july and it was a lifesaver. granted that day was wicked hot (over 100º + humidity), but still. so much activity lifting and bending and going up and down stairs etc etc. it really is a workout.

Ahh…just as I always do, despite my mantra to slow down – there you go, frantically working to get everything organized and settled on the day of the move! Terrific progress, esp. on the all important (spacious-looking!) kitchen! And, the robins egg blue paint is looking so fresh and lovely – I’m looking for a Justin the painter in my neck of the woods.

Wishing you many years of happiness in your new house, K + M!!!

I would really like to try that cashew/clementine nut butter sauce. I wonder if it might make a good Thai Coleslaw?

I’m with Karen… I always wash my dishes after a move. Even a just across town one! But… I use the dishwasher. ;)

The house and paint color look gorgeous!
We are going to move next month, and I already know I will be nowhere near as organized and settled as you! (and I’m pretty organized!). You’re awesome!

I got this one from BB&B and it’s great because it has a place to hang clothes to dry and a shelf on top!

there’s something about those Jimmy John’s veggie subs. I see them and I want one! I get it without mayo and with extra spicy peppers! The new house looks great- love the floors! You guys were super speedy movers!

I’ve moved four times since college, and I confess that I’ve never — not even ONCE — rewashed all my dishes after packing them! But now that there’s phantom roach poop to deal with, I might have to after my next move…

Would you tell me what kind of kitchen counter tops were in your rented house and in your new house? Were they the same? I like that woody look with the white contrast. I’ve looked into getting reclaimed wood for part of our counters, but I’m afraid of it scratching too easily.

135 KathEats September 13, 2011 at 4:04 pm

They were both IKEA butcher block but we didn’t install either of them

136 Jaime September 13, 2011 at 4:21 pm

What was your experience with them? Do they seem to hold up well against scratches or water?

Hi Kath! I tried reading back but couldn’t seem to find this info- so you guys owned your first place, then rented in Cville, and now are you renting or did you guys decide to buy this newest place? It’s gorg, love all the colors and special touches!

147 KathEats November 8, 2011 at 8:57 am

Hey Katie,

We owned our house in Charlotte, then rented the Craftsman in Charlottesville for a year and then just bought a house this September.

You can see the three houses on this page: http://www.katheats.com/kerf-favorites/home-neat-home
