Moving in

The 43 Folders discussion group has a good thread going about moving into a new house. Excerpts (with a few additions of my own):
  • Label well the first boxes you're going to need: Sheets and towels, critical dishes, etc.
  • If you're going to paint, do it before you move in. And if you're ripping out carpet, paint first -- the carpet will act as a drop-cloth to protect the floor.
  • Do your furniture layouts using scale drawings and furniture cutouts; it's faster than using a computer.
  • Rekey all of the locks. You never know who might have keys to the existing locks.
There is also extensive discussion on the current state of the art regarding land-lines versus VoIP versus cellular phones.
