I never thought I would be brought to such a state of gratitude over a washer and dryer, but it has happened. I am beside myself with happiness for the ability to wash my chore clothes and throw rugs at a moments notice!
I found this washer and dryer set on Craig's List and I finally got the plumbing installed to accommodate them.
Now I just need to figure out a better clothesline. These gates do work pretty well though. You can swing them to point the laundry in the direction of the sun.
Unfortunately it 's a rather long walk from the washer to the gates. It's about an 1/8 of a mile to the top of the hill.
But I'm not complaining. It's so nice to have fresh clothes to put on in the morning and blankets that smell like the outdoors.
