gas fixtures

So the dryer i bought was electric, the one that arrived is gas. i guess that’s ok, because i have fixtures for both and i think gas dries stuff faster or something. The problem is in installation. i think the delivery guys would have done that part for me, but i was missing a flex something or other, which i picked up at lowes today. i tried to put it on, but… well i’m not exactly sure how to do [...]

Fixing up the loose ends here.In other news, I bought a washer and dryer.
