We had 33 wood frame windows replaced in our previous home (Pennsylvania) - it cost $11,000 including labor. It seemed like an insane price at the time but some of the windows were custom sizes, so now I think it's fairly reasonable.

Turn off the ice maker. It's a little known fact that the only time they break is when you are out of town and they fill your house with a foot of water.

What do you mean by "pulled the trigger" - did you order it, is it installed, is it too late to return?

If you're really stuck with it, I would do black cabinets, white countertop, modern brass fixtures, white toilet/sinks/tub, white subway tile (I know these are elements that some readers complain about - but they work!) and warm it up with some textiles, plants, art. GOOD LUCK!

this happened to me a few years ago. i don't remember the specifics (other than a tremendous amount of water), but i know it turned out to be a defective sensor on the furnace that is supposed to regulate the amount of water that is heated up...or something? get a professional in there - water damage is he worst :( good luck!

katstrode - i second this recommendation!

we bought the overstock version a few months ago and it's a dead ringer for the parson's. it's held up really well so far, no problems at all.

don't be fooled by the poor photo quality on overstock, the desk is white, not off-white:
