The one in front is a tricked out Audi A6 with blackened windows. The one in back is an Audi S8 V10, also tricked out also with blackened windows.
Was the government there to bug my home? Perhaps, because we went inside to find the trim carpenters. And one of them looked exactly like Jason Bourne (aka Matt Damon).
I was too intimidated by the extremely loud hip-hop and the tough looks of these gentleman (the broken English led me to believe they were Easter European immigrants, perhaps Russian?) to take a picture. We got in, got some measurements and popped out. It does appear that they do very nice work. And, clearly, trim carpentry pays well.
Measurements were necessary because we bought the rest of our appliances yesterday!
I heart Sears. They were having a great sale this weekend, and on top of sale prices they were offering 20% off if you bought 4 appliances or more. And an additional 5% for using a Sears charge. Plus they threw in free delivery. (Which they will do up to 60 days after purchase.)
The husband calculated out what we saved yesterday. Compared to list price on these items (not including delivery charges or tax), we saved:
****** $3,400 ******
Here's what we got:
Refrigerator - Kenmore Elite 31.0 cu. ft. French-Door Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator Stainless Steel
|It is a monster, which is why we stopped to measure. It will fit!|
|We loved how the icemaker is in the door only.|
Washer -- Kenmore Elite 4.3 cu. ft. Steam Washer w/ Reversible Door.
|Washer/Dryer were our best deal, by far. We got both at about 1/2 retail.|
Dryer -- Kenmore Elite 8.0 cu. ft. Steam Electric Dryer
|Got them in white. Red and purple were available -- but much more expensive.|
(You may recall that there are issues with microwaves above gas cooktops. See here and here. So we are purchasing our own and installing after closing.)
|Unlike the fridge, which was across the room and not adjacent to other appliances, the microwave is right next to the double ovens. So, I was a little concerned abou the matching. Which is why we went with the GE profile.|
Stand-up freezer -- Kenmore Elite 16.7 cu. ft. Upright Freezer
|Our love of Costco necessitates a separate freezer. We'll put this one in the garage.|
We can't be more excited!
