We were so excited to see the delivery truck show up with our furniture!
And even more excited that they came before the rain began again!
Will it fit through the front door?
Not looking very hopeful at this point.
Not only is the sofa large but it is also very heavy. The set that we purchased was made locally of Belizean hardwoods. Tom said he has not ever lifted a sofa this heavy that didn't have a mattress inside. The frame and legs are connected so the legs couldn't be removed to go through the door.
Tom directed them to the side door...after lots of maneuvering the sofa finally made it into the house.
They had to disconnect the stove and move it out of the way so there was more room to negotiate. At one point the second guy was having a hard time getting through the doorway on his end...the first guy said "hey, what's the jam up?" and the second guy laughed and replied "mi cell phone!"
After all of their hard work getting two large chairs and that sofa in the house they asked it they could pick some plums from the tree in our yard. We gave them each a bag to fill...they were very pleased with their bounty!
My photos are not the best...my camera battery was recharging when they drove up so I had to use Tom's cell phone. Once we get the furniture arranged the way we want it I will post pictures of the living room. We are so grateful for the generous gift that was given to us so that we could make this purchase. We are going out on Friday to look at a table and chairs for the kitchen.
We have been here a full year now...and this house we are in is finally feeling like a home.
