Just FYI. This would greatly bulk up our laundry room. We have people who do 
laundry at midnight, start to finish, and some who put laundry in even later 
and switch to a dryer on their way to work. Or earlier even earlier in the 
morning when they go out to run. One couple does laundry at 11:00 pm while they 
watch news from Africa in the living room next door.

In relation to dryer vent cleaning, I was trying to determine who the 11 people 
were who didn't have washers and dryers. I could only name 6 whom I had seen 
using the machines. I was told about the night shift.

Also, I would add that just like the size of the unit not necessarily being 
predictive of the number of people in the unit, the number of hours people 
spend in the laundry room doesn't seem to be related directly to the number of 
people in the unit. One household of one person seems to be there for hours 
more than one day a week. One with two adults and two children is there for 2-3 
hours once a week, or less.

(I have my own machines and only use the room for large items but I pass by
