Today has been such a great day. The weather has cooled down and even rained a little bit and it's starting to feel like Fall. The house is also coming together. We finished putting in the door and floor moulding yesterday and today we moved everything back into the rooms. For a week there we had three roommates worth of room furniture and crap in the middle of the family room. Now that everything is out of the family room we'll get some couches out of storage tomorrow and finish that room. It'll be nice to have a communal room again where everyone can can hang out an relax.
I purchased a new bed frame and nightstand yesterday as well. Now that those are build I feel much happier with how my room is laid out. I haven't had a TV in my room for a while and I think that I'm going to go without one for now. Maybe in the future I'll put a nice flat screen in, but my old TV took up more room than it was worth. I also put my desk in storage and am going to try to live with just my laptops. I leave my work laptop at work for most of the week, so I'll have to get my personal one back from the parents house. Although I still feel like I'm living in a closet I do enjoy the extra space that I have by giving up the desk and TV.
I also ran all of my speaker cable through the attic so the installation looks a lot cleaner than having speaker wires running all over the place. I don't think that I could do without the stereo system, but I did give up the huge CD changer and CD burner. I have the receiver set up so that I can plug my laptop in via USB and listen to any music through the room speakers. Pandora is much better enjoyed through stereo than through the laptop speakers.
We should have out full kitchen and dining room tomorrow once the fifth roommate tears out the temporary wall in the dining room that was his room. It'll make that area look huge and I'm looking forward to having another room to relax in. I don't really miss the dining room, but it'll be so nice to have it back. Also, if the weather stays cool the fireplace is in the dining room and it'll be used for the first time in many years.
Ah, it's so nice to have the inside of the house almost done!
