Re: Getting it in the house

I bought a new dryer today and struggled to get it in the house. We had to take it out of the box in order to get it in the front door. My house is 100+ years old, so things like doorways and stairs are a little more narrow than you might find in a more modern house.

Now that it's in the house, I have no way to get it into the basement where it belongs. The stairs are too narrow, and they turn 90s degrees halfway down. I have no idea how I'm going to do this.

The only thing that confuses me about this is that there's already a washer and dryer down there, not to mention a furnace that was only installed a few years ago! How did they get there? The house wasn't built around them!

This house is tricky. We had to dismantle the other stairway just to get our beds upstairs when we first moved in.

I remember a similier situation with a huge Kenmore frig, I was 10 and my family and I where moving into a smaller house. I was the biggest out of 5 (but not the youngest) so I had to help him lift this huge thing onto the pattio fromt he moving truck and I just couldn't do it and I slipped leaving all the weight on my dad! When he finally wrestled the thing down he punched me so hard that I skidded across the lawn. This is know to this day in my family as "The Refrigerator Punch"!
