moving in

So, I don’t know how many of you have ever moved into your house using a row boat, but it’s not easy.  Thank goodness Jess changed the design of the bed into three pieces.  We took three trips with the bed section perched on the nose of the boat. Jess rowed and i kept a hand on the bed so that it didn’t fall off and go straight to the bottom. (there is some joke about sleeping with the fish, but i’m not that kind of guy.)

We took it slow. When we got to the island Jess held onto the deck so we wouldn’t fall away and I, carefully, lifted the portion out of the boat and brought it inside.  Water makes everything move weird and it’s taking some getting used to. I’ll talk more about that later. For now, we have our first and probably biggest piece of furniture installed and it feels good.

One Response to “moving in”

  • Marvin Says:

    Probably most of the furniture moved by rowboat is done when people are moving out – like in Nashville a few weeks back!
