Alex and I anticipated that our house in Germany may not accommodate our bigger furniture so we opted to leave it in Texas. We did not anticipate however, that a double bed might be out of the question!
Our belongings made it over the threshhold, just to be halted before the looming staircase. After sizing up the situation, we thought by taking one...possibly two steps out we would be able to angle our boxsprings and bedframes up the steep stairway. Two days and eight stairs later the problem still remained. Not to mention, the screws on every single stair had been stripped to the point that even extractors couln't reverse them out. So with a little metal cutting, hole boring, wood burning and sheer brute force Alex tore the stairs out. But alas, it was all in vain.
