Jeff and I got the keys to our new place yesterday and we are going over today to do a walk through of the apartment. We will also bring along our trusty tape measure to determine the amount of space we have. The point of measuring is more for me than for him; I want to figure out ahead of time where to put our furniture. I also want to see how accurate my designed floorplan is.
When we first applied for the apartment, I was so excited about living there that I drew up a floorplan in Illustrator from a combination of information I found on the internet and my memory, complete with floor coverings. I know its a bit over the top, but not for me. I love organizing and planning, its just in my OCD nature. And in this case, I don't think it is a bad thing.
