Fall is the BEST season!Posted: October 2, 2010
So we sold our house for really sure this week. FAB! Our closing date is Nov 19th which really sucks because that only really gives us 4 days with our new house being empty. I wanted about 2 weeks so it could be all painted and mostly furnished before we moved in.
Now comes the parts that I find fun:
2-making floor plans of the new house
3-making finish and furniture plans, possibly even elevations
The crap part about that is that I now have a mac and even though it is SUPER awesome, the drafting software that I know how to use (AutoCAD) is not available and I’m not interested in running it off one of those parallel drives. What a pain! I’m going to give Google Sketchup a try. I’m installing it right now and I hope it’s actually accurate and precise because otherwise… my eyes might bulge.
In other news, things are picking up work-wise. One of the designers is away on long-term leave and we are also a little understaffed so I’m taking this opportunity to take on new kinds of work to try and advance myself into something that will be more fulfilling long term than what I am doing now. So far I’m having fun because it’s all new (ish. It’s stuff I’ve done in other jobs and in school but that I haven’t done in some time) but I’m sure that eventually it would get annoying just like any job.
Today is the perfect day for a nature walk! Gatineau seems a little far for a pre-nap walk. Any recommended trails? Pref. int he east end.
On this day:
