Our home: the laundry room

When we began our search for an apartment, the first few we visited were lacking in a vital area: the laundry room. After peaking in their laundry facilities we quickly realized it would take a small fortune to keep our clothes clean there. Besides that, the thought of juggling a laundry basket and toddler down the extremely steep stairs wasn't all that appealing to me.

When we found this house, it didn't have an area set aside for a washer or dryer, but the property manager said that we could improvise if we wanted. So we did.

Welcome to our laundry room

The washing machine is in the kitchen but there wasn't an inch of space for a dryer. I'd decided to just go without one until Joshua and his dad came up with the brilliant idea of putting it on the back porch.

I LOVE it! While I hang the bigger clothes and towels on the clothesline Rosalind helps put the little stuff in the dryer and thinks it's just the greatest thing.

It's amazing what will work with just a little creativity! :)

What a creative idea! We had a washer in our kitchen once, it was very convenient.

Hey Anna, I miss you so much! She's a mulberry! Today I went to Classical Conversations, it was so much fun!

What a good idea! Both our washer and drier are in our kitchen, but then our kitchen is rather large.:) Don't let Rosalie know she is really doing a job some people don't like.:) She looks so happy to be helping.
Can't wait to see you all!

I can't wait until we can have our laundry on the main floor. Why it's in the basement is beyond me - trekking it all up and down stairs over and over again is just silly. Blessings, Whitney
