Lake House Washer/Dryer

Lake House Washer/Dryer

One of the last appliances that I needed to buy for the lake house was a washer dryer. It will primarily be used for swim suits and towels, since we don’t keep a ton of clothes at the lake house, but it is still very nice to have. Space is absolutely an issue, since the space designed for laundry in the lake house basement cannot fit a full size washer and dryer. Given this, I bought a combined, stacked unit with a shallow depth that can fit in the space provided without blocking the entryway to the basement when you come down the stairs. I picked a compact Whirlpool unit from Home Depot:


Once it’s delivered, there is still work to do. When the major HVAC remodel was done last winter, we disconnected the dryer vent, and we also ripped out the dryer power outlet. The current state of things is not exactly ready for prime time.

Once that is done, the appliance remodel at the lake house will truly be complete!
