New Appliances...

Monday I decide to give our builder a call to find out where we are on the new house. It seemed like so much still had to get done for it still to be finished sometime next week, but he says we are still looking at sometime next week. I expect we will do our walk through the end of next week and there will be a few minor fixes before it is totally finished and handed over to us. While on the phone I ask him my long list of questions. At some point he comments that he better spill the news now..... the storage at his office was broken into and three of our appliances were STOLEN!!! Ugghhhh!!!!! Anything that could go wrong with the build of this house has gone wrong. He is paying for us to pick out new appliances, so at least we won't have to shell out even more money!!

Last night around 7:00, after hubby got off work, we went to Sears to see if the original appliances were still available. The refrigerator had a transition number, but is basically the same as what we had in storage. The washer was available, but the dryer was not available (at least not in the color we wanted, they ONLY had white), so picked out a new washer and dryer. The original washer and dryer we picked were a top of the line Kenmore Elite top load without the center agitator. We ended up with a front load, but it is still top of the line Kenmore Elite. The front load sits a lot lower to the floor and with my back problems I really need the stands so I don't have to bend over as much. We are hoping the builder will pick up the stands. We just sent him a list of what he needs to buy, so we will see!!

Hopefully this is the last of the problems we will run into with this build! I can't wait to be in our new house!!
