Home: Moving In and Setting Up Shop

I have no idea where we're going to put half this stuff.

After much anticipation and a couple of weeks of waiting, we're finally in our new home. We were pretty fortunate that the movers were able to make the entire move in one day, and we're already out of the boxes. I say "out of the boxes," but we're stilling working through some organization. Like most urban homes, we're low on closet and storage space, but so far, we're finding ways to make this space work. Here's a peak of what's been going on.

On our first night, Kathryn noticed this sweet effect of our house numbers casting a shadow on the wall.

I noticed this sweet DC Vote sculpture. Taxation without representation, indeed.

Our kitchen is no longer a wreck thanks to Kathryn's work.

We've gotten pretty good at putting together IKEA furniture.

This is what the grass looked like just before we moved in.

This is after my first attempt at trying to cut the grass with my new electric string trimmer. It's a little patchy, but fortunately, there's no city ordinance on patchiness.

Getting the hang of it the second time around.

When we were back in Illinois, my dad gave me this sweet tool cabinet and tool set. It wheels into our utility room perfectly.

I used the drill to hang this hose rack. Already becoming a handy man around the house.

A few days before move in, this is what a trip to Home Depot looks like.

A few days after move in, this is what a trip to Bed, Bath, and Beyond looks like. Both of those carts are ours by the way.
