    My laundry is in a cupboard inside the kitchen. I think it (and the bathroom) used to require going outside. House built in 1926.

    I would like a greywater system that allows me to send the laundry water out onto the back lawn without leaving the back door open (for the siphon hose) which lets flies, mozzies in. And hot or cold air in or out as you'd rather not depending on season.

    Then again I'd like an extension that gives me a proper kitchen and dining area. Sigh. I'm stuffed if I know how those 1930s house wives did any cooking at all. It's only one stage removed from camp fire in here.

    That's EXACTLY what I'm after !! I've been to a few "open houses" recently & those cupboard laundries are all the go at the moment. If we want to renovate, the only way is up in this house. We have a heritage overlay, so we're not sure how much of a 2nd story we can get away with.

    When I was in the USA a couple of years ago I was amazed at the "cupboard" laundry in a hallway. It is so common there. Great idea, I had never seen it before. Would save on all the crap I tend to store in my laundry if I only had a closed in alcove and some shelves with a washer/dryer in there.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    Our laundry is in our bathroom. Most apartments (well, the ones we looked at anyway) have the laundry either in the bathroom or a hallway cupboard.

    We used to live in a house where the laundry and toilet were originally outside but had later been added to the house. So you basically went out the back door, done some steps and into this added on hallway thing that had your laundry, a wood storage area (!!!) and then the toilet. It wasn't insulated so it was either freezing or boiling and there were spiders everywhere - I used to make hubby go out to the toilet first and check for spiders before I'd go out there! He was thrilled when we moved

    I've come across quite a few houses down here where ppl have renovated and placed the laundry facilities in the bathroom. That was spin-out. tell you what, it made sense though. Those home-woners would simply get undressed at showertime and throw their clothes straight into the machine or basket whish was hidden away in an alcove behind what looked like another door. Great concept if space is limited but the bathroom is big enough!

    You've caught my disease. It's called having dyslexic fingers.

    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.

    So that's what it is, Anne?

    I'm glad it has a name. I thought I was just being in too much of a hurry. But dyslexic fingers sounds much grander, so I'll go with that. Lol.
