hi, I'll echo what Patti said, and we might also want to note that it is an energy savings/environmental benerfit doing laundry in the CommonHouse.: it is astounding how often people w home washer-dryers will 'just put one thing thru the wash.' Doing laundry n the CH inclines against this-- for sure. As to other questions: we do have a rotating laundry line. Agree that a 1:1 ratio of washers:dryers makes sense. We recently installed a deep laundry sink, and have a small folding shelf.

Besides the fact that simply owning less machines per community decreases carbon footprint, there is a huge savings per household when resources are pooled to buy top of the line, energy efficient, commercial grade machines to share.
