I started taking pipe organ lessons earlier this year and just had opportunity arise to buy a used practice organ for my home. After much deliberation (especially about where we could make room for it), the decision was made to get it. This weekend's first "adventure" was tackling our bonus room upstairs - taking everything off the shelves and moving them and other things - lots of dusting and reorganizing ensued.
ASIDE - We REALLY like games! So that's what our shelves are full of!
Dear friends and family members arrived, ready to haul quite a large instrument upstairs.
Time to start unloading . . .
Slowly the organ makes its way to the house . . .
Now to figure out how to get it up the stairs . . .
. . . all 400 or so pounds of it . . .
Up we go!
A little concern at the landing.
Settling into it's spot . . .
Time for much-needed refreshments!
Then back up for some repairs . . .
. . . and then the professional showed me how it's done.
