Pretty excited about a recent development in my laundry room -- my dryer is upside down!
It started out several years ago right side up, sitting on a shelf I built for it, right above our new front load washer. The washer only lasted a couple years, so for the past 6 years we've been using our temporarily hooked up washer of my parents -- 30+ years old, never a problem.
FAST FORWARD TO A FEW WEEKS AGO:
I decided it was time to deal with this issue. So first we determined that the front loader was a goner, and we would embrace the oldster as our chosen machine.
we couldn't just slide it in the washing machine spot because the shelf wasn't high enough. No problem, I'll just rebuild it higher!
as it was I was tiptoeing it to reach everything....
And then it hit me -- what if the machine was upside down?
The dials would be lower, and the barrel would be about the same.
I took out the old shelf, cleaned up the whole area, painted it, added side shelves this time, and put in the machine upside down. Viola!
And although my tiny little laundry room isn't quite completely done yet, making some headway on my halfdone house inspired me to keep going
(we had taken a several year break after severe house burnout)
So...adjacent to my very tiny laundry room will be the world's smallest bathroom!
Just a sneak peek. I'll keep you posted!
