Double Washing Machine/Dryer Set-up

Anyone have this? Two washing machines/two dryers? Do you dream of owning such a set-up?

I've lived through washing machine and dryer breakdowns, and never does it come at a more inconvenient time. Having to load-up sopping wet items and make an emergency run to the homes of family or friends to dry, or to the Laundromat (which grosses me out). Everything is always so dirty and un-kept at public laundry facilities.

Anyhow, am seriously looking at investing in another washer and dryer, then stacking them as a space-saving measure, that way no more being left high-and-dry when a machine breaks down.

I do have two sets. When I started having significant trouble with my back I decided to have a laundry room upstairs. There was really no room but I made room. Took out the tub in one bath and put in a shower. there was a closet at the end where the tub was so that gave me more room. I now have a stacked unit and am so happy about it. DH wanted to leave the downstairs one too so we did. Occasionally he will use it for shop rags our if I'm doing lots of sheets and blankets but the upstairs set has been a God send.

Sounds so handy, Joyce. I envy you. For years , whenever I came across a picture of a large laundry room, I thought, what silliness, but as I give more and more thought to the idea, it makes total sense to me.

My dream laundry would be a large room with a sink, a large table for folding, a wall or bank of glass-fronted cupboards, and a double washing machine and dryer set. Having additional room to leave the ironing board set up would be an added bonus!

Breakdowns really get me down.

My downstairs laundry room has a counter and cabinets, a big cedar closet, large set of built in shelves and plenty of room to leave the ironing board up, but it's pretty dark even with two lights. Upstairs I have an ironing board up all the time too in my sewing room.

We have such a tiny little house, so no room to leave my ironing board up (how I wish I could), but I promised myself as the dear children start leaving one-by-one, I'm going to repurpose their rooms to meet my needs. (Snicker, snicker, snicker)!

If only it wasn't such a bitter-sweet time, Joyce...
