The storage unit arrived today (hurray!) and is parked in our driveway. Unfortunately, after Sydney took the measuring tape to it, it was not in fact 8x8x12, but rather something a bit shy of that. They may have been measuring from the outside or any number of ways, but the fact of the matter is that our bookshelves will not fit like we thought they would. We have fewer cubic feet than we thought and we will have more trouble using the space efficiently.
Sydney’s a bit tired of setbacks, and we’d both like to get on with things, so we’ll hope for a smoother path over the weekend.
