One of the problems with rehabbing an old house is that doorway to the basement is tiny. Really tiny. And the hallway (if you'd call it that) leading to the basement is really tight. That makes for getting a couch down there all but impossible it is turning out. See that drawing above? That's of one piece of a couch that Nat really liked. We were going to get it for our basement. But....guess what? It won't fit. Bummer.
