Finally got the radio room suitably "emptied" in preparation for the cleaners to take a whack at it.
They've been working in the kitchen for several hours, and are almost done in there. Next is the "master" bedroom, then the bathroom, then the front bedroom, bathroom and finally Radio Central.
Oh, and the living/dining area.
They're very thorough and "bubbly/perky" young ladies.
The gardener came again today with his big truck, and hauled away a ton of trash. The city also came by and picked up all the stuff we had by the curb. Long Beach gives you three "Large Item" pick ups per year, and we still have two we can use.
I think the cleaners will have to come back tomorrow, as it's already 1210, and considering how thorough they are, I just don't think they'll be done by 1700. The quote was for "Monday and possibly Tuesday", and I'm guessing they'll need at least part of Tuesday to finish. I also have to drop, disassemble, and pack the tripod/mast my discone is on, and the mast on the side of the house holding the weather station and another small VHF/UHF vertical antenna.
The photographer is coming by on Wednesday, and the house gets listed Thursday.
The realtor told us the market in this part of town is "crazy hot", and he had the sales figures to back it up. He thinks we should get some good, solid offers the first week, and it should definitely be under contract well before the end of July.
That means we'll be outta here by the end of August, possibly the middle of August.
I have quite a few items in the garage that the movers will not ship, so I'll either rent a trailer to pull behind the Jeep, or a big "Box Van" like I rented when I moved here to Kaliforniastan some 35 years ago.......
-More to come-
Holy smokes, the house positively sparkles!
They even managed to make Radio Central here look good.
My hats are off to the young ladies who showed up on time, didn't take any breaks, and worked seven hours straight to clean the house.
We not only paid them the agreed upon price (which my wife haggled down before they came), but we also tipped each of them $20 each.
