House Hunt: It’s official

April 6, 2010

It is with great joy and excitement that I announce to you:  This morning we signed the lease on the completely renovated 1000-sq ft ranch house that we fell hard for a few weeks ago.  Even more exciting?  Our landlord gave us the keys when we signed on Tuesday, even though we planned for May 1st occupancy.  Um, yeah – he’s pretty much awesome.

Now for the planning! House Hunt:  It’s official

Excited about the fabulous kitchen, I used the text feature of Picasa to plan out where all our kitchen goodies will be stored.  Settling into this space will be a breeze.

Only one dilemma:  where to store the plastic cutting sheets/boards.  I just can’t seem to find the right spot.  I guess I’ll spend 5 minutes figuring it out once I’ve unpacked everything else.

As for the other rooms – I’m still drafting floor plans for them, but moving furniture around is easy and fun.  So I don’t mind if they aren’t figured out prior to the move.

What do you think?  Is this over-the-top OCDness setting in?  Am I going to far in my pre-move planning, or is this sensible and efficient?  I love that not every shelf in every cabinet will be utilized immediately.  Hooray for empty spaces and good [supposed] fung shui

      Good point! I’ll be storing them in the pantry, and also in a cute little jar on the counter :)

    Yea for an awesome kitchen with lots of cabinets! Cutting board ideas….I leave mine propped on the counter by the sink. I’m constantly using them (like 3x a day!) so they are always handy. A friend of mine has this:
    only flip it over on the counter next to your sink…then you’ve always got a place to chop!
