My kids are 10 and 14, and there is NO WAY you could ever get me to
give up my washer and dryer to do laundry in the Common House, even
if I were fully abled (which I am not -- I use a cane).  I'm constantly
starting or moving or emptying loads of laundry; if I had to traipse
over to the Common House to do it I'd be living there instead. :}

And I'm especially grateful for my own washer and dryer during periods
of household illness.  When someone has a stomach bug, you want
laundry capability Right Here and Right Now, not in a pile several
houses away waiting hours to be washed. :}
