On the Job with C: Arranging the bookcase

We are one week away from our big install in Fairview.  From a weedy large lot to a new 5000+ home, we will have lots to highlight here soon.  At this point in the game, all the large items are purchased and are being inspected and prepared by our receiver White Glove Delivery.  Now, I’m busy shopping for accessories, mainly for the several bookcases throughout the home.
