Packing for a Move

Welcome to my website. I’m hoping to provide you with some useful packing tips. My name is Ellen Monday. My family and I moved from a very large home to a large home. My point being, although we still live in a large house, we did downsize. It was almost like packing for two moves because we had belongings going to the new house and some going to storage. We had to make decisions about what we wanted to keep, store and get rid of. I have some tips on how we made those decisions, and the best ways we found to pack. Items that were going into storage were packed differently than those we were moving to the new house. Boxes had to be carefully and clearly marked so we didn’t end up storing our everyday dishes or something tragic like that! Hope you enjoy my blog.

Frame Tents For Residential Use

Aaron Carroll

A 20 x 20 frame tent offers plenty of unobstructed space that will be sheltered from the sun and precipitation. Use the following pointers when shopping for a frame tent and setting it up on your land.

The Purpose

Tents that will be set up on residential land can be used for social occasions, intimate family gatherings, yard sales, and more. Your purpose for using a tent may drive you toward purchasing a particular tent color and pattern.

Some frame tent models may contain trim that hangs down along the top part of the tent. A tent that contains fabric trim will increase the amount of privacy that a tent furnishes you with. A 20 x 20 frame tent will supply enough room for you to place a picnic table, dinette set, or other simple furnishings that you will use when seated under the tent.

The Frame Pieces

The metal framework pieces that a tent contains will hold the tent fabric taut. The vertical frame pieces will contain tapered ends. These ends are designed to be installed directly into the ground. If a tent is going to be installed on pavement or another hard surface, weighted items can be used to hold the vertical frame pieces in place.

The Location

Commercial tents and quality residential tent products are designed to be leakproof. Thick fabric with a tight weave is used to construct high-quality frame tents. After you purchase your tent, choose a part of your property where you would like to use the tent.

You may decide to erect the tent near your home, for instance. If so, make sure that there are no dangling branches or any other obstacles that could damage the tent or block your view while you are seated under the tent.

The Installation

If your tent will be set up on grass, remove loose debris from the ground and use a lawnmower to trim the grass. If you have selected a paved surface to install the tent on, sweep the pavement and use a water hose to rinse off the pavement.

Remove all of the tent pieces from their box. Locate the pieces on the diagram that is featured with the installation steps. Ask a loved one to assist you with the installation of the tent. The other person can hold onto the fabric and framework as you install the tent. Before you place furniture and other items under the tent, make sure that the tent is stable.
