The last thing I wanted to do was paint first. I needed to live in it a bit & see what colors really spoke to me. My place is 100 yo & the new "color of the year" just wasn't gonna cut it.

What I DID do...have my home blessed. Ran a deed search to get a more precise build date (I knew 1935 was way off!) and lastly....took my time & let the place speak to me. What I may have changed on day one...I'd never change today!

Great tips. Moving pretty much always takes longer than you think it is going to take. So, be smart and plan ahead. There is lots of packing and organizing you can get out of the way two months in advance of your move. Thanks for sharing your innovative ideas.

Live in a very warm climate - so thankfully don't have to do most of this! Except repainting and checking caulking/seals. Just bought a new place on a slab and the weep holes need to be re-drilled and it has no insulation but will be installing it.
