Whaaaa, moving is so much work! Okay so we haven’t really begun to pack yet because our focus has been on the purging, organizing, sorting and getting the house in ship shape for showing. Since I took the photo’s the realtor will be using I thought I would share a behind the scenes tour of our home.
Welcome, please come on in!
Our Back deck with my jungle of plants, sadly some will not be coming with us.
The Dining Room looking towards the back deck and the kitchen.
The living room
The living room from the dining room, as you can see the first floor has a very open floor plan and great windows!
The Master Bedroom
What use to be our guestroom is now our staging area with packing supplies at the ready.
This pretty well concludes the tour of our home for the past 6 years. I’ve left out a few areas including the full basement because it’s not much to look at right now. Below is what it use to look like when I had my carpet design office down there, now it’s another staging and storage area but will be a great space for whomever move in here next.
There is still a lot to do, including getting stuff out of here which we are continuing to sell. Rather than a yard sale we will be participating in a Flea Market to sell the remaining items this coming weekend. A few furniture pieces, art and craft items, tires, tools, electronics and other odds and ends will be going. Now that the house is pretty much ready to show we will on alert to vacate for the realtors at a moments notice. I’m sure that’s going to be fun! I’m trying to keep a positive attitude but the limbo part of this process is particularly tough on me. I’m a very home based person so I feel I’m being invaded but it’s what we must do to move on. I’ll be back next week with reports on the flea market and the realtor’s listing info. If you know anyone who you think would love to live in this house in Gaithersburg, MD please get in touch!
