That's a good post!

I sleep with the Windows open when I can and NEVER drive a car with the windows open (that's for smokers to open their windows-probably what keeps me from ever opening them is not wanting others to think I smoke.). (Which I don't smoke in case there is ANY confusion!)

Our house had a hoop attached to garage roof. The kids used it occasionally but eventually I removed it because it leaked in the garage. Not to mention it was ugly. When my daughter wad older and had a job she bought a freestanding hoop. Used it about a week. It was ugly and in the way for years. Then I had to pay someone to haul it away. Fast forward, she wants me to buy another one so she can lose weight! NO!

We did when we bought the house. We have a gravel driveway, so I was a little curious how well you can dribble on a sloping gravel driveway (the post the hoop was attached to was crooked too) . Anyway, a chain and a pickup truck got rid of it.

Am I the only one who doesn't have the front loader washer and dryer?? Lol!...no, seriously though....am I? Because I would love for someone to design a laundry room around a top loader washing machine.

Those laundries are pretty, but would not completely satisfy my needs. I am surprised some people wonder about sink. I need sink in laundry for many things, wash dirty shoes, boots, cloth after cleaning my dog's paws, washing his towels and blankets (no way I would do it in washing machine for our clothes or use dryer), wash dog's bowls, paint brushes, all dirty stuff that I wouldn't do anywhere but in laundry sink. Besides, it's very convenient to fill buckets for washing floors.
I need high storage for vacuum, steamer, broom, bucket, mop...
I air dry many clothes, saves energy, environmentally friendly, so big drying rack is a must, and good to have for some sweaters flat drying counter space.
Finally, my husband is builder and need wardrobe to keep working clothes (he also takes off there his dirty/dusty clothes after work, not all the world have office jobs). As well I have "less sophisticated" clothes and durable/water proof boots for dog walking (some dogs in the park get too excited and jump on you).

I have lived in Italy, as well as England and Switzerland. The leading comment above is grossly misrepresentative and sour grapes.

People can't afford driers because electricity rates are sky-high. They also have more time to hang clothes because they work less (unemployment rate is 10%+) and shopping and entertainment is closed much more often. Oh, and clothes are extremely expensive as well.

I had a newborn without a drier and it was raining. It was terrible. It took days to dry his clothes. I had racks all over the house.
Yes, most women have a great sense of style and many are in good shape. They also, with rare exception, do all of the domestic work and childcare so they are extremely busy physically, even when they work full-time.

Likely this sounds very opinionated, but so was that comment! why read something like houzz if you are only going to try to shame everyone who enjoys it?

Thanks for the article. I was also considering soapstone, but the scratches would drive me nuts. Can we have a similar article on Quartz countertop?

You lost a lot of credibility when you said this: "high carbon dioxide content, has a very negative impact on global warming." The pretend "science" of Global Warming® (since rebranded Climate Change®, since rebranded Climate Disruption®) is a high-profit making scheme paid for by government institutions. Governments drastically raising taxes and taking freedom away from people will NOT cause the earth to cool. Silly people!
