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.

    13 April 2015

    Pre-fabricated storefronts add architectural beauty to your commercial building without requiring you to hire a designer to create an original look. Choosing metal as the material for framing and columns reduces maintenance, but you still need to eventually add a new protective cover of paint or clear coating as the current layer chips off.
