When Frankie came by last week, he helped assemble our "laundry area" which currently comprises our total livable area in the basement (6 square feet! Woo hoo!).
After wiping off the drywall dust this morning, I loaded up the washer for a test run (towels.. .nothing too worrisome if something fails)..
Well, they made it through the washer with marginal success (slight leakage under the washer though). They are now turning in the dryer.
Hopefully this isn't a major repair and we will be able to avoid any laundromat woes!
