Tips on Moving Into your Custom Home

Once you’ve secured a loan, lot for your home, and made your dream home complete with a hot tub, there are still a few things you’ll want to consider. Unpacking can be as stressful as packing up and moving. Here are some tips to help you get a head start on unpacking and make your new house feel like a home as soon as possible.

Be Systemic

  • Yes, it may be annoying to label twenty boxes with the word “Kitchen,” but when you’re looking for a cereal bowl in the morning you’ll know exactly where to find one. Inventory lists are helpful, but if you don’t want to get too in-depth, you can always list a couple of the most important items in each box. By writing a list of  a couple of items on the side of the box, you’ll never have to tear through ten boxes to find the coffeemaker.

Keep Related Items Together

  • What you’ll want to unpack the necessities right away, especially kitchen items. Even if you’re not ready to cook a 4-course meal right away, you’ll still need bowls to eat cereal out of and a microwave to heat things up in, at the very least. Getting most of the kitchen set up an the boxes cleared away will make your new house feel like a home much sooner.

Separate the Necessities

  • Pack an overnight bag or suitcase. What things will you need right away? What things will you need in case the moving truck gets delayed? When you start moving into your Birmingham home, you’ll want least one change of clothes, toothbrushes & toothpaste, toiletries, chargers for your electronics, and towels and sleeping bags if there’s any possibility you’ll get to the house before your things.

Remember, you don’t have to unpack everything at once. Just unpack a couple boxes at a time, and you’ll be all moved into your Birmingham custom home in no time!
