The week before Thanksgiving, we had the big move.
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.
Goodbye old living room!
Hello, new house!
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.
Bye bye bongos! Here come the big boy drums.
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!
