We have three washers and dryers, for 25 units, and I'd say roughly the same
proportion of people who own their own. We have only the occasional backlog
of laundry. But if we were all in one building, I bet we'd use the machines
more. We'd also need more dryers if we didn't have so much sunshine most of
the year.

I hate the schlepping, but I like running into people in the CH. I used to
have a machine at home when my daughter was a baby, and I did miss the added

Our laundry room is conveniently located off the main entrance to the CH,
and on the ground floor. There is a window to the laundry roonm right by the
mailboxes, so people can see who is around when doing the laundry or getting
the mail.
