Of course you can! I would link to my "sofa saga," but that thread is too long and dramatic.

Here's the before... "FlexSTEEL" sofa that was light on 'flex' and heavy on 'steel'.



And AFTER... Full reclining wall-away La-z-boy. Yeah!




Ahhhhhhh....




And the dramatic installation thread... Sofa Replacement

Sarah, how has the La-z-boy sofa held up? I want to replace our couch with something like you bought. And thank goodness we don't have a curved couch to take out!!

The bathroom wall behind the fireplace would get VERY warm when we'd operate the fireplace for several hours. My hubby installed this vent in the wall; it allows some warmth into the bath area while allowing air to circulate in the wall.

Ernie--it's actually a little over 34', but the model is called a 33C.

Today we finally swapped out all the halogen ceiling bulbs for LEDs. I can't get over how much COOLER the LEDs operate.

Hi Sarah

Would love A pic, did you go with warm or natural white? Want to change out ours, but don't want warm white if too yellowish?
What towbar do you use? We just bought a Wrangler...
Brian
