Getting in the Groove

The week before Thanksgiving, we had the big move.

P1180406

The guys from Buckhead Movers backed down the driveway between the swing set and the basketball goal  and parked the truck just inside the 3 point circle (isn’t there a penalty for staying  in the lane too long?).

They carried out furniture, boxes, rugs and weren’t even bothered by strange people with cameras.

P1180408

Goodbye old living room!

P1180432

Hello, new house!

P1180433

They backed right up to the front door and started unloading.  Before too long the new living room was starting to look familiar.

We started breaking in the house over the holiday weekend.  The band room got a gentle start with an acoustic rehearsal.

After the soundproofing we had some serious acoustical issues inside the room, but the cork flooring really helped. No more echo chamber!

And the soundproofing worked so well, that while this was going on in the band room, a group of teens were enjoying a movie in the great room.

A day or two later, another band came in and amped things up a bit.

P1180452

Bye bye bongos!  Here come the big boy drums.

P1180450

Everyone seemed to like the way it worked.  I’d say I did a good job, but I wouldn’t want to…

…toot my own horn.

Meanwhile the teenagers felt inspired to use the newly landscaped backyard and stone terrace as a soundstage to make their own movie:

It is really fun to see everyone using the spaces I’ve planned and dreamed about.  We’re really getting in the groove!
