After weeks of clothing rationing at IBB we have finally got a working washing machine and a dryer. After arguing with every used appliance dealer in Rochester about why I thought it was important to have a matching set I managed to find these for 275.00. I know I could have gotten a better deal off of Craigslist but I need to have them for today because it was the only time I was going to be able to arrange a truck for pick-up. Considering the fact that they are used, I’d say that they are in pretty good shape. I actually think that it was the store who did the most damage to them, not the previous owner. For instance when they took permanent marker and wrote some kind of inventory number on the top panel. Good thing the Comet took them out. Or when they scratched the paint moving it around the store with their rickety dolly. If I had to do it all over again I don’t think I’d go back to them.
My dad came to visit in order to install them. IBB has never has a dryer before. so we needed to put in a vent and run a gas line, which wasn’t easily done. After several hours and two trips to the hardware store we were finally in business. However, the new appliances really don’t help to hide the fact that IBB still needs a major electrical upgrade, but for now at least we are headed in the right direction.
