So tomorrow we’re swapping our boys’ bedroom with my study, so they have more space. That means dismantling my 100kg raising desk AND moving a 500kg (when full) fish tank.
Trying to get ahead of the game a little bit tonight.
I. Hate. My. Life. This is gonna be a complete and utter nightmare.
@kev I had to move a full tank on carpet a few years ago. I ended up going to the hardware store and bought some wooden dowels, cut them roughly for the depth of the tank stand.. then slid a number of them underneath the tank. The squishiness of the carper allowed me to slide the dowels undereath the stand relatively easily. This allowed me to slide the tank over the dowels. Egyptian pyramid-building style. once the tank moves and you uncover a few dowels.. move those up front, slide, repeat.
@kev getting the tank out of that pocket in the corner of the room looks tricky though. Maybe if you left the dowels un-cut first and slid them underneath, it might allow you to slide the tank across them towards the center of the room by reducing much of the friction from the carpet. *shrug* I dunno. I was dealing with thick carpet so YMMV.
@unicornfarts I’ll be emptying the tank before I move it, so that’ll make things easier. Still 100+kg without water though. Ahhh I’m sure it’ll be fine. 😳
@kev Wait, ~64sqft space is gonna be a shared bedroom... AND it's bigger than what your kids are in now?
I'm calling child services.
Let me guess. That tiny closet was your favorite place of the bunch.
Everything is huge for a child. Any space is a big enough space if you can jump while your arms are high and still not touch the ceiling.
600ft² is half of our old house. But we weren't always in our bedroom. We could run in entire house and we were lucky enough to have parents who let us draw on the walls.
It wouldn't be a healthy brotherhood if there wasn't conflict. My brother is few years younger than me so when he got mad, I would let him to punch my back. I can't say no to a free massage.
Siblings will fall apart, either during childhood or during adulthood.
@trhr houses are smaller in the UK. I couldn’t tell you what the sqft of the tool is, as I don’t deal in that metric, like most of the world. 😊
Both rooms have plenty of space for two little people though.
@kev Have you ever considered that the reason 🇺🇸 is the innovation center of the world is because we have to convert between imperial and metric in our heads on a daily basis to help you understand us?
