We Bought a Sectional!

Well, we have been shopping around for a sectional for a while now and today we finally pulled the trigger and bought one!  And boy did we get a great deal!  We went to a direct furniture store around us called Crawford Furniture.  We had done some research and found a sectional that we liked online so we went to check it out in person and we loved it!  My fiance and I were having a hard time agreeing on style vs. comfort.  This one is both stylish and comfortable so I think it will suit us well for many years to come.  We picked a neutral tan polyester microfiber that is washable for the fabric.  It will be delivered to us sometime in May after we move in.  We are so thrilled and excited to cross something off of our list of things to buy.

We also were able to go to the house and walkthrough today again with our PMs (yes we have two, one is in training).  There were a lot of guys out there working today.  They were putting our furnace in today which is great because that means the house will soon have heat.  There were stacks of drywall EVERYWHERE!  The house is being inspected tomorrow by the town for insulation and then they will start drywall on Wednesday.  I am hoping to walk through again on Friday to see the drywall.  My fiance and I are both off from school this week so we are trying to see as much as we can this week.  I unfortunately didn't take any pictures today but the only difference was that we now have insulation.  We also measured for our refrigerator (the opening is a standard 38") and measured to see if this sectional would fit in nicely.  And it will! Otherwise, we are enjoying our week off.  The next major purchase is our appliances (fridge, washer and dryer) which we plan on looking some more this week while we are off as well.  Hope everyone has a wonderful President's Day!


  1. Congrats on the purchase of the sectional...let me were focused on style and your fiance was focused on comfort. We went thru the exact same thing while looking for a sectional for our finished basement. I was all about comfort and my wife was about style. It is amazing how many sofas look great but feel like you are sitting on a rock. Anyway, congrats on checking that one off your list...thats a big check mark :)

  2. We want both in a sofa. Daniel is just as picky as I am and we both fall asleep on the couch.

    Happy appliance shopping. After getting the fridge I've decided to wait for everything else until after we close. It's too stressful. Plus washers and dryer are always on sale. One thing our PM told us it that the majority of fridges will fit. Just watch it if your looking for the really big commercial ones. I think the height is 72 inches. That's what he told us is the max.

  3. That's great. We're contemplating a sectional, too because I have a similiar issue. My husband REALLY wants a recliner, I really do not want one. We have to find some kind of compromise, but it's not going to be easy. In a way I want him to have one since he's pretty much giving me free rein over the whole house, but I really hate the look of them. We're going to look at furniture in the next couple of weeks, so we'll see.
