We started the day early.  Putting together the battery rack. 

It’s always good to read directions 

Progress one tier at a time. 

With the rack complete time to open our presents. 

All tucked in there so nice and tight. Snug as 6 bugs in a box 📦 

Martin started on his own to lift the little monsters. Then our big strong neighbors stopped by to give a hand. No need for that engine hoist we put together when have great friends. 

They would bring them in one by one by wheel barrow. Then lift them into place. 

After all was done a big boy chat is always good. 

Funny how they all talked with their hands on their hips. 

We unloaded fabric and machines. 

Martin and Ron put together this wooden magic machine mover. Worked like a dream.  Otherwise you are two Chinese people shuffling along taking baby steps. The person on the motor side has all the weight and the frame at their feet. 

I rolled out the floor clear coat while Martin worked on the rack of batteries. 

Some big girl decided to do exploring on my newly rolled floor. I came unglued for a moment then while I cleaned her paws we laughed. More character is what this home needs. This floor can tell so many stories. 

After that adventure I came to help Martin with the bus bar connections. 

Bolts, washers, lock washers and nuts. Repeat, repeat, repeat and repeat. Together we busted it out in no time. Now he is still reading directions and torque wrenching the nuts.  He has looked forward to this day for two years. 

Fabric is put away. And two of my Cubbies are built. Three more Cubbies to go. 

It has been a super busy couple of days and we will continue on this pace till closing of escrow June 20. We head home early tomorrow. Mulqueen is coming to break down my quilting machine then we head back up Tuesday for them to deliver it. The elephant gets smaller everyday as we take little bites here and there. 

While I was blogging Martin finished up the rack. 

Ta daaaaaaa…..,

Till next time…..
