The entire OP is a bit iffy if you ask me... 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 [it] 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.
