Speaking as a traveler for work those little stackables can be a god sent in a tight space. In the day when i came back to where ever i was staying completely covered in mud or what ever the task was for the day. Having a washer to even wash one pair of pants and a shirt right there and then saved those from being ruined and stained for life. So though they are not a family or even a great couples washer and dyer they certainly have there place.

never understood those stackable units ,they just seem useless
She was tiny lady, her clothes were so tiny she could do a ton of laundry in one wash. When she passed she was 68 lbs. about 40 lbs to lite.

We are getting a full size stackable unit, that way we have some room in the laundry to store the ladder etc. I have that at home, love it! They are stacking them for us, they need to install the metal brace that keeps the dryer on top of the washer.

We moved our laundry from the basement to a spare small bedroom. My 20 year old unit finally died in the basement and hubby moved our laundry up to a spare bedroom , I love it being upstairs.

Main reason I wanted a 1 story house .My laundry here is 12x15 and the modular home builder thought that was strange ,but not to me .I use it for my computer my sewing machine and a craft room and to be honest I wish it was bigger .;)I thought ahead for every thing ,even handicapped swing doors .I could always sell the other 2 lots but for now it is for me .I made a list a whole year before I retired about what I wanted and what I needed in a new house .Did tons of research and then drew out the house and Norris homes built it .Basement contractor could not understand why I did not want stairs to it from inside and why would I want plumbing put in ,you always have to think ahead and that could be future living space and no one would have to break up the insulated cement slab .There were tiny mistakes I made but they have been somewhat changed as the years have gone by .

My biggest mistake was laminate floors but they were in back then and if installed correctly they can be good but this installer from the flooring place was the worst .Doing vinyl plank myself and seeing how great they are making my house work much easier .Yesterday I installed all the new smoke detectors ,10 of them all wired up and have the new ion lithium battery back up with lights in them and they talk .I will donate the old ones to habitat for humanity .Nothing wrong with them except you have to change the back up battery once a year .The new ones are good for 25 years and not cheap but well worth the cost .Peace of mind is worth it .Thought of stacking my front loaders but with my bad back and being short it was better to put them on the drawer stands .Been lucky with the whirlpool ones as no problems with them since 2004 when I bought them .I just wish the lawn edging and weeding was easier .The need to come up with a ride on mower that edges the lawn at the same time ,I have seen people on youtube that make up their own .

IF YOUR RIDING MOWER HAS A BAGGER ATTACHMENT I' D LOOK at that area as a place to place a bar /cutter straight edge slide it in and lean it forward . using the front bar to place the bar on and the back bar to secure the cutter use a hose clamp to set it and run your walks and driveway . You do seem to be a ambitious crafter
