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.
