Drum roll please....

After much time, thought, and energy, we bought our washer and dryer set today!! First of all, we shopped around a lot, went to Sears, and HHgreg, as well as price shopped online. HHgreg had the better prices, and they offer free delivery/haul away (with a mail in rebate ). They also are able to play with their prices a little bit as far as adding/reducing pedestals, warranties, etc. Overall, it was a great shopping experience with them and I would highly recommend them. When we walked in the door my only MUST HAVE was a washer/dryer set that had reduced vibration/noise. Our laundry room is on the top floor, and I didn't want the whole house shaking with every load I did. We also didn't want to spend a fortune. I had been set on Maytag Bravo top loaders as they usually run a little less, but lo and behold we ended up with a front loader, 3.7 cu. Samsung model #WF220ANW. After researching it online, while in the store lol, it had some really great reviews, and they were on sale for $599 each! It also has a great sanitize feature, which is important since I work in the ER and get every bodily fluid imaginable on my scrubs. I still liked the maytags, but they were not on sale, and I didnt like how they felt opening and closing them... dumb I know but they slammed hard and were loud in comparison to the Samsung we ended up with.
On a further note, we stopped by the house today and the stone front is up :) Also, drywall is finished, with paint on the way in the next couple of days,cabinets are sitting in the garage, flooring is set to go in this week and next, ceiling has been "stamped" or w/e it is to make it have the decoration, and driveway is to go in soon enough. Anyways, here are some pictures of the progress!

  1. We went with a Samsung front loader as well. Lowe's has them 28% off so we couldn't pass it up and it was what I wanted. Progress on the house looks great and your stone looks amazing with the siding color!

  2. Love all your choices. Good luck with your Samsung. They are what I picked up last year on Black Friday for about the same price. It does a good job with reducing vibration, however it uses a lot of water to do it and it can add up to 30 minutes to the wash cycle if it can't balance the load well enough to reduce vibration.

  3. Congrats on the laundry set! =)

    Love the house! Is that the Kentucky stone? Looks good!

  4. Yay for washer and dryer! I heard overall that front loaders use less water than top loaders. My husband and I will definitely be looking into front loaders when the time comes.

  5. My wife is a nurse as well so she had the same thought about the sanitize functionality. We read up and discussed with some friends that have it. Apparently that feature is great, if you're willing to wait forever for your clothes to get clean. Also, forget about any energy saving when running in Sanitize mode. I 90% sure we didn't bother getting it and we're happy with the set we have.

    $599/each is awesome for a good front loader! Great job. Also awesome to see your drywall is coming along. It was yesterday that you guys were just in framing!
