In the Uk there normally one washer and one dryer in the kitchen just because we dont have anywhere else to put it i guess. I one thing that leave me scratching my head is the washer in the bathroom in the east.. Whats with that? Here in Pl we have a "Wash Room" with just a washer in and coats.
Seems to work. In the winter when it frezzes we put the washing in the attic to dry. Or radiators.
Poor you John.. The british summer.. How i dont miss it..
