Thanks Roger! I appreciate all that you said. I am going to call the co I bought it from today and hopefully even intercept the FED EX guy and return it at our door!
I seriously questioned the size when we were on the phone.
As far as going up to Scamp
, yikes! We were thrilled to find one for sale
used that was only 2 hours from our house. It would be a 2 DAY drive there - and 2 DAY drive home. (one reason we were happy not to need to buy a new one). And plus, like I said, my husband can do almost anything - he has already put in a silverware drawer, a big drawer under the closet door, shelves into where the big closet is, new carpet, changed location of some funky electric, a new "back splash" - that vinyl tile that looks like pressed tin, etc. (I've done some work too - painted all of the doors, changed hardware, cleaned cushions and sewing window treatments) - just not nearly as much as him! This way it helps him to feel like he "owns" it more.
Which is perfect b/c it was my idea to get this.
We went out last night and were looking around for a location for the AC unit. He's going to find a very small one locally (hopefully today). I think we found a good spot - below the table (Frank will move the spare to the front). This way it will cool the space when the table is up and then when it's down it will still be able to push out that open space. We REALLY don't want it in the window.
Wish us luck! And thanks for all of the help on this everyone.
