Project Genesis II
Growing up, we had a long closeline for hanging the wash and it always smelled so good when it was brought in. Sheets could be pinned out to their full length and were dry in no time. My mother didn't want an electric dryer so we had lines in the basement too.
When I got married there was no room for a long line so we had one of the umbrella types that worked pretty good. Now in the the house we're in , there just isn't room for a traditional closeline and hanging things over the deck railing has been OK but I really wanted some sort of line for clothes.
Last year Lee Valley introduced an accordian style drying apparatus that can be attached to the side of a house and I couldn't wait to get one.
As you can see, it folds right back against the brick and opens up to hold quite a few items. It's located right outside my kitchen door and ultimately gets a lot of use.
Project Genesis is hosted by Suzan at Old Grey Mare and I hope you'll share your environment friendly ideas with the rest of us.
