We closed on our new house yesterday at 4pm. We have already torn out carpet, begun removing baseboards and made many trips to the hardware store. We don’t intend to move in until late next week. We are laying new downstairs flooring, painting, and cleaning. We have carpet installers, appliances and miscellaneous servicemen scheduled all through the week. After move-in, we plan to refinish cabinets, bathrooms, and install storage built-ins. I was so excited to rip up the carpet I almost forgot to take before pictures, i’ll post them later.
