Well we successfully completed the move to the new house and have been settling it. It was a very rough move and I definitely learned my lesson. Last year we moved and hired a guy and things went very smoothly. This year as we were only moving a 1/2 km I figured "hey I can do this". After 4 days of lugging stuff over and up and down stairs during one of the hottest summers I can remember, I was dead! Lesson learned, the money spent last year was well worth it and the only way I'll ever do it again. ;-) Thanks to all those who helped with the big stuff on the Saturday to help us complete the move.
The new place is fantastic. Still a few small reno's going on and while we were moving in they were up to their ears in the reno's, they ended up being a few days behind so I had to dodge them throughout the move.
No indoor photos, given that blogs are very public, but I did send some photos off to those of you who are close enough. But here is an outdoor look;
|The front. The garage is being used by the owner but I have full access. The house looks older, and it is, but the inside has been completely renovated and has tons of room. I call it "the tardis" cause it's bigger on the inside.|
We had quite the horror story with Bell and Rogers. There was no sign of a phone cable going to the house or into the house. They finally found the cut phone cable and ran it up to the house and I later wired a phone line into the house but while we were running the underground cable we hit on rock. After some digging we discovered it was interlocking brick. Some more digging discovered a completely overgrown walk way. Like I said, character.
|The recovered walkway.|
|The backyard and the old, beatup, 22 year old vertical back in the air. Little worried about how the metal roof on the garage is going to effect things to the north but we'll see.|
|The 6 meter quad awaiting the tower to go up (in the left of the picture laying on the lawn).|
So fingers crossed lots of photos in the next 2 weeks and more blog items that talk about interesting stuff besides moves and antennas. :-) Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
