Should I sell my Chambers stove?
I have loved Chambers stoves for years and have 3 friends with them so I've used them and understand them. When we moved into our house 5 years ago we knew that we would someday do a full kitchen remodel and I knew that I wanted to buy a colored Chambers stove for that kitchen. I looked online for about 2 years when a yellow one in great condition with a lot of pots came up about 2 hours from me. We had not even started the remodel but I knew that the colored ones were hard to come by. (BTW I live in a Chambers rich area - just not colored ones.) I bought it. I probably overpaid a little for it but whatever I loved it. It has been in my garage for about a year now.
We were supposed to start our kitchen remodel this past March but decided at the last minute that we would rather move than remodel. Our new house, we move in mid June, will also need a full kitchen remodel but it is years away. The new house is a little stretch for us financially so we just have to live with the kitchen as is for a while. I'm okay with that. My question is:
1) Do I move this 500 lb stove to the new house and continue to store it until we remodel? or
2) Do I sell it now? (knowing that it is unlikely I will find another one when it is time to do the remodel). We could use the money but it is not a make or break kind of thing. DH would really like a Chambers Imperial - but he doesn't realize how extremely unlikely that is.
- There is not a good way to put the stove in the new house as is. The new house has a 1940's electric Thermador with a griddle that actually works great (although we prefer gas). And the configuration of the kitchen doesn't allow for a home for the stove. (Although I could possibly put the Chambers where the refrigerator is and the refrigerator where the Thermador is - but then the fridge would stick out from the cabinets).
Tell me what to do oh wise ones!
