moved out, and barack obama moved in. >> i sent out a questionnaire to the advance team right after the election, and there's a huge list. what brand of shampoo, what brand of soap, what type of carpets, bedding. you want foam pillows, or feather pillows, mattresses. >> reporter: for security reasons, no outside movers are allowed, so the entire staff must pitch in. >> all 95 staff members, no leave is granted. >> reporter: and it's no small task. the white house is a three-story, 132-room mansion. while the ground floor is open to the public, the first family occupies the second and third floors. with 16 bedrooms, 35 bathrooms, family rooms, and a private kitchen. it's about 20,000 square feet of living space. which means the trumps will be downsizing from their 30,000-square-foot penthouse in
new york city. >> the white house is the white house. it's just a spectacular place, and, you know, it's something that represents something very special. >> reporter: with all the precision and the preparations, ultimately roshon said moving day can be emotional. he still remembers the feeling of saying good-bye to george and laura bush. >> i remember inauguration day, in the morning, to say farewell in the east room, and there wasn't a dry eye in the room, including the bushes. >> that was elizabeth vargas reporting. the official beginning of the year of the rooster. still a week away. why you can start celebrating today.
