The Laundry Operation

After weeks of planning and construction in his man-garage, Paul has finally completed his marvel of laundry-related architecture: A combination bench (with storage compartments) and not one but TWO clothes drying racks.

Today marked the culmination of his endeavor. Moving his masterpiece from the man-garage to his newly remodeled bathroom took the whole family’s efforts, but they paid off handsomely. Here are Sage and Paul celebrating their triumph:

Now I’d better get off the computer and go hang some laundry…


  1. Hats off to Paul and Sage ~ and to you for posting this energy-saving triumph. I resist the idea of using a drier all the time, but our HOA frowns on clothes lines. I could, however, put a wooden rack like Mom used to have out in the lanai. It would catch the breeze while being unobtrusive. 🙂

    1. That’s a great idea! In addition to this New and Improved drying rack ensemble, I have two other drying racks, and I use them all the time when it’s too cold to hang laundry outdoors. Even if I didn’t care about the environment (which I definitely and passionately do), the drying racks would be worth it for how much they reduce our energy bills. I hope you find one that you (and your HOA) like!
