Moving Day 1

We are already settled in our new home, but here are some photos from our move.

I sold my van in order to make the trip without having to return for it.  We rented a large UHaul truck as well as two trailers.  I pulled one trailer with our pickup truck and my husband pulled the other with the UHaul truck. We left on Wed. Oct. 29th  Thurs. Oct. 30th (I had to edit this)

The trailers and trucks were packed full.  We also had two Chihuahuas, who rode with Eric in the big truck, and my collie who rode with myself and my daughter, Laura, in the pickup.

I did not have room for all my wood supply and had to leave behind some, including most of my pallet wood and my pallet wood triangle which was the top of a treehouse I made many years ago.

Here's a before and after of my shop...

This photo was taken just as we were about to leave our driveway:

It was really tough to load and pack everything ourselves.  I must say it took a lot out of us and we were happy to be finally driving away.

To be continued...


  1. wow! What a brave thing to do. Someone is very lucky to move into your home.
    Happy it all went well for you all.

  2. I had to leave most of my building materials when I moved the last time so I can totally relate! Never mind. You'll have a blast collecting and building in your new home. xox

  3. Good luck to you on your new adventure!!
    Keep us posted!
