    Wow, your place is 100 years old. I'd love it!!! Let me loose there!
    Space is often an issue though in the older homes, I think.
    This is the first house I've ever had of this age, GSD's, and yep, the laundry is outside off the back deck. Can access it completely undercover, but sheesh, it was a spin-out when I realised where the laundry was.
    After being here for over 6 months now, I actually love where it is. I can do washing (and in winter drying) through the night when electricity is cheaper, and the sound can not be heard anywhere in the house. A massive bonus with sleeping children!
    DA ... I do ... seriously. I have no sleeping children ... the dogs don't care about how/when/where I do the washing. I want the European cupboard laundry inside the house. It takes up bugger all room if you design things right. But firstly .... I want my hallway attic ladder & ceiling storage area. Treats anyone ??

    Well I wish for you to get your attic space and inside laundry too

    Like DA I am a sucker for the old Victorian homes.. normally they have beautiful large bedrooms and fire places and gorgeous ceilings, but teeny living areas and bathrooms.
    That is spot on pugger. Massive bedrooms, fireplaces everywhere (that don't work!) and small lounge and bathrooms. We've had to knock walls out and totally change the floor plan in some ways, and the hard part is trying to keep that older style whilst doing so.

    Occy, of course we don't beat them on rocks. We attach them to the dogs and let them run around the yard in the wind. That dries them. Then we place the clothing between the mattress and the bed-base, and that irons them! PMSL.

    My Mum looked at a unit with the European wll-enclosure laundry GSD's, and it was a brilliant idea. Worked well too. She didn't get that laundry, but I think she would have been very happy with it had she have got that one. It was an ingenious design.

    Roll on attic ladder and storage space.

    Just about Occy. If I'd been smart enough, I would have grabbed my Grannie's mangle & clothes boiling copper as part of my "forward planning" schedule. I'll economise where I have to, but I hate my outside laundry.

    Meaning, actually positioned inside the house. You don't have to walk out the back door or somewhere to access the laundry. That's what I mean anyway.
    For instance, my laundry in this place is situated as part of the house, but you can only access it by walking out the back kitchen door, along the deck and into the laundry. Make any sense? Lol.

    First house I've ever had with a laundry, um, outside. As I say, freaked me at first, but now I wouldn't change the floorplan of where it is whatsoever.

    No stream Occy, but if we're desperate the river is across the road and we can just go and whack them around in there.

    I'd love to have an outside laundry! The last couple of place I lived had outside ones, it was great, in this house the laundry is half way down the corridor, and I have to walk through the living room to get outside - only trouble is that I have one of those pig in mud doors that slot into the sliding door which means there is enough room for me to walk through it, but not enough for the basket so I have to turn it on it's side and do contortions to make sure nothing falls out! Same thing bringing it back in *sob*
