I’m honoring this holiday by not laboring myself, how about you? I was on the road for a last minute business trip last week that took me over 1000 miles in 3.5 days! Since I love to share projects I’ve completed, today I’m share photos (Before & After’s!) of a Quick Moving Monday Unpacked In A Day job I did about 2 weeks ago. I love how satisfying unpack jobs are, either working with the client or on my own I get to “Play House” and help them get settled into their new home!
This was a 1 person corporate executive relocation and I unpacked this 2 BR/2BA apartment in one long day. This was a tight fit and the client was told she would have a 3 BR but only a 2BR was available for now…
When I arrived the boxes were placed in the general rooms they belonged in but you just never know what you are getting into and so I always feel a mix of excitement and anxiety (not stressed and worried-just that sense of the total unknown) as I get started on a job like this…it was a tight fit to begin with.
The project went like this…
Above and Below::open plan Living Room and Kitchen/Dining area were full of boxes. This is where I started, getting the larger items and boxes out of the way first.
Everything was unpacked, lamps and accessories placed and boxes broken down/removed.
The Master Bedroom was a very tight fit with the over sized furniture (king bed set) but with ample closet and storage space all non-essentials were moved out and the room now feels bright, cheerful and relaxing.
The guest room went from awkward to comfy and cozy. I re-arranged furniture so the chair and an additional piece would fit, unpacked and made up the bed.
Kitchen, from empty cabinets to thoughtfully arranged and easy to access items in the “zone” they will be used.
I was super pleased with the results but more importantly, so was the client. Here’s what she had to say when she arrived home that night…”I just went by the apartment and you are amazing! When I got there I was completely blown away. Before you came I just wanted to cry, but after you left I felt at home. I can not believe you found a way to get all that furniture to fit and the back bedroom looks awesome. I think you have done a fantastic job in such a short time. I can’t thank you enough.”.-Terri H.

It’s always my pleasure to do my job and leave my clients feeling happy! If you ever need help with a move, keep in mind my unpacking services might just give you some peace of mind in an otherwise hectic situation!
