Before: (Although you have to imagine that the cats' litter boxes were in that space, as I moved them before I remembered to take the picture.)
Old washer and dryer before:
Shelves cleaned off and ready for work:
Establishing before shot:
After: our new dryer will be vented directly outside. Currently, our dryer vents up several feet over several feet and then makes its way out a very tall side vent. It's incredibly hard to keep this very long vent from clogging. This one will vent one foot over and out. I love it! You can also see the shelves are gone.
Here's the new plan, as planned by our handyman, Wesley Johnson. Instead of moving the pipes and the electrical, over several feet, we will run them through a new hole in the wall and into the exact same connections.
Now we will purchase our washer and dryer. We are excited for a whole new world of laundry.
