- i can't have a washer + dryer in my house-
When we bought this lovely little fixer upper, the washer and dryer came with a backstory. The former owners had the w&d in the garage. Let us count the ways why that's a no-go. First, the water hookup for the washer freezes in the winter, sooo I would have to turn the water on and off in-between cycles and pray that it doesn't freeze and blow up. Second, there was no dryer vent. Seriously. WTF. That is crazy dangerous and there was hella dryer lint all over the inside of the garage. And to top it off, there is no entry to the garage from the house. Ya, so that means one would be going in and out of the house in all types of weather to do laundry. Hell to the no. At some point someone must have told the sellers they may want to install a w&d hookup in the house to help sell the house. They chose the kitchen. Besides not being a fan of that location, the space wouldn't accommodate a full-sized washer and dryer. So naturally we called the plumbers and electricians to do their thang, installed storage around the washer and dryer, and presto we have a place for laundry IN the house! This makes me stupid happy. Landscaping, flooring, exterior house paint, fence, so much before & after goodness comin' to the blog!
(also, notice the extra storage for wine, sometimes i think i'm brilliant ;)
