It is so worth saving an old house...town homes & apartment blocks have their place but not in an old neighborhood like the Heights, the first 'suburb' of turn of the century Houston(and earlier). Thanks to people like Brie and Scott, whose house is absolutely gorgeous, the Heights is full of families with children now who have chosen to 'save' the old neighborhood. Well done!! As for the white...a tastefully done choice, Houston is very hot in the summer, and this house is bright, cool and cheerful all the year round. White reflects heat :)

P.S. I meant the 20th Century, not the 21st!

Thanks minperkins for that thought. I was thinking about that as I looked at all the pics with washer and dryers that had countertops built in. It locks you in to certain dimensions of washers and dryers.

my laundry is at the back of the garage - attached to the house but accessed from the sliding door in the family room, across the patio and you are there, approx 5 steps. I have at times wished for an internal laundry but have been grateful for my external laundry many times. The dog food lives there, the dog sleeps there, small garden equipment lives there (secateurs, gloves, weeding fork), chemicals live there. I can dump muddy sports gear, soiled linen when kids were sick, soak clothes in the tub and it is all away from the rest of the house. Last week when the tap had leaked from the washing machine it meant I didn't have a wet soggy inside mess to rectify. Living in NSW Australia I rarely use the dryer - mostly hang washing under cover of pergola - doesn't get wet if it rains, doesn't fade in the sun and can stay out for a couple of days if I am busy and don't get back to it. Sometimes it is just too hot and bright to be bothered going to the clothesline in the backyard. Love the smell of washing sun dried - very lucky that I am able to this.
