My New Washer and Dryer
My new washer and dryer. They are both awesome, but the dryer is phenominal. I have never had a dryer that dried this fast. My bed spread was dry in 34 minutes! In my old dryer it would have taken an 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Lighter loads use to take at least an hour. I guess in 20 years I never had a good dryer and assumed that was just the norm. This dryer dries faster and things are dry in less time than it takes to wash a load- I use to always have to wait on the dryer. Oh and another cool thing instead of a beep at the end to let you know the wash or dryer is done it plays a little tune. Ok I am in washer and dryer heaven :-)
This is my utility room. I purposely did not take a picture of the yucky concrete floor. Hubs is in the process of tiling it- Ok so far he has only borrowed a special saw to cut the tile from a friend and done some measuring but I am hopeful by the end of the month to finally have a floor in the utility room plus some new shelves and a folding table. If it gets finished I will post pictures of the newly remodeled utility room.
