I turned an old bathroom in the upstairs of the house into a laundry room, now the laundry has to go a maximum of 15' to get washed and dried. I have the biggest washer and dryer that will fit in the house...cut the laundry time in half and knocked the electric bill down about ~20$ per month also. Having unlimited hot water from a coal boiler and cheap electric helps also.

In the winter when the EFM is cranking I do hang up some of the heavy stuff in the basement. The rest of it never comes downstairs.

I feel your pain ! That was the route I was headed on until divorcing a city girl cured mine. :lol:

Now I'm lucky that Melissa is a country girl that appreciates the value of coal stoves and clothes lines. ;)

Dryer is in our basement. In the winter, I used to cut a let off of my wife's panty hose and slip it over the dryer vent hose. Just laid the pipe on the cellar floor. It worked great. Trapped the lint and added moisture to the very dry cellar.
Also, use a vintage clothes rack over the register.
