I'll add in two cents for appliancesAvoid:
Sears - Worst warranty service/technicians I've ever had the pleasure of experiencing
Electrolux - Multiple issues with dishwasher/stoveLike:
Bosch Dishwasher - Works well and very reasonably priced
Whirlpool front load washer/dryer - Would avoid the bottom tier stuff though, mid to higher end seems to be great. Also the stands for these things are highway robbery, $300+ each, probably easier to make your own.Meh:
LG fridge - Freezer seal is starting to let go after about 7 years. Personally I hate french doors on a fridge, if you haven't used one before I would make sure you really want them. There's way more to go wrong and I haven't seen one that hasn't had seal problems after a few years of use.
Frigidaire Stove - Seems kind of cheap and flimsy, lets a ton of heat out through the window. Probably a cheapo though, came with the house.
that place on Des Meurons is mostly garbage, don't bother. Bains/Midland on St Mary's are both good, Stalwart if you want to sell the S2 for a fridge.Projects:
Need to get a bathroom fan installed before winter as my bathroom is molding a bit. Electrical part of this sucks but whatever, $$$.
New garage/pad and a new fence. Still deciding between getting it built or doing it (structure) myself. @Vince
hurry up with your ticket pls.
