    Yeah, buying a house is very similar to swimming in a steamy hot vat of puke while 32 people jab you with cattle prods.

    Ok.. Its worse than that. I made it through it though. One of the most stressful things I've ever done.

    :werd: hopefully 24 hours from now, i'll be saying WOOOHOOOO ITS OVER!

    and then i'll realize that i still have to move...


    and then i'll realize that i have no closet rods... so all my clothes will be in a pile on the floor....

    and then i'll realize that i have no blinds/drapes... so everyone will be able to watch me at night...

    but then i'll realize that damn, all i have is a kitchen and stairwell light..... so no one will be able to see.... not even me.

    :cry2:

    go to the local home depot or lowes, study their floor plan and become very familiar with the store...
    you'll be going there a lot and its a huge time waster wandering around looking for random shit...

    blankets for bedroom drapes FTW...

    is the electric still hooked up?
    if it is take care of that asap
    it sucks being in a new place with a stupid candle and no tv/music/fan/nothing...

    alright, not sure what closet mate is, but if you need rods with shelves and all that shit go to home depot and look for the white metal deals...

    they are metal wire shelves that come in various lengths with shelf brackets, and attachments like rod hangers etc etc etc

    you can basically make any size shelf you need with any sort of attachment you could ever dream of...
    they are sturdy as hell and have a nice smooth white finish...

    i have them all over my apartment and love em

    2 pieces of advise...
    1, buy a stud finder, it will help a lot
    2, buy a small/medium set of bolt cutters...
    bolt cutters are the easiest way to cut these shelf things to the proper size...

    get more than enough brackets/rods/shelves cause you can return them

    and do yourself a favor and get the pretective end caps...
    if you do cut them, and have them anywhere near where you could impale yourself on the end of the shelf, you WILL trust me... i fucked myself up pretty bad putting a shelf about head level with no pretector caps...

    Screw all that. Custom-made cedar shelving FTW!

    Even I did that. Smells great and looks awesome. Easy to do.

    very true, but when you protect yourself from something, you bang it on something else. or at least i do.

    Things like this show how diffrent the laws are. Up here I think I spend a total of 2-3 hrs to bid, negotiate, and close on a property. As for you closet the sell 2" round closet dowel, all you need is a hand saw and two brakets and 5 mins.
