How We’re Saving Big on Home Renovations with the Albert Lee Warehouse Sale

Homeownership is not for the faint of heart, and as many of you know, we’ve had some struggles along the way. Not only is buying a home expensive but so are all of the things that come with it! When we moved in over 2 years ago, I had major plans for updating our kitchen, especially the outdated appliances from the 1970s. Then we spent thousands and thousands of dollars on unexpected repairs and surprises, those plans were a bit foiled. 

Enter the solution to my appliance dreams: the Albert Lee Warehouse Sale!

Take Your Measurements

Before heading to the sale, it’s important to take lots of measurements! You want to make sure that the products you select will not only fit in the spaces inside your house, but also through doorways, stairwells, and corners to where it will be installed.

Here are some measurement tips and tricks for specific appliance applications from Albert Lee Appliance:

Washing Machines

  • Measure the space available
  • New washers can be deeper than older models
  • For front load washers, what door swing will work in your home?
  • Do you want to stack your laundry? Don’t forget a stacking kit!


  • What type of power supply does your home support? (Electric, Natural Gas, or Propane)
  • Measure the space available, as new dryers can be deeper than older models
  • What type of door swing will work best in your laundry room?
  • If your new dryer is deeper, you may need an optional side vent

Kit Ranges

  • What type of power supply works best for your home? (Electric, Natural Gas, Propane, or Dual Fuel)
  • Some ranges are not convertible to propane, so make sure you are purchasing the correct fuel type
  • Make sure you have adequate ventilation for your new range


  • Measure your current space, including height and width, available. Avoid measuring your current refrigerator as your space may support a larger unit!
  • Measure the maximum depth you would like the refrigerator to stick out; new units can be much deeper!
  • Confirm what door swing you will need for your space
  • Most top and bottom mount refrigerators are field reversible, meaning they can be hinged from either side


  • All dishwashers have different loading capacities
  • For best results, bring a sample of your current dishware to be sure that you are satisfied with loading capability and capacity
