Laundry Hookups

The laundry room is a mess. I believe the small room was originally the servants quarters because it is next to the kitchen, used to have a "toilet closet", and has a back door so that the servants can enter the house unseen by the owner. This is a feature my parents used to have in the exact configuration - a room connected to the kitchen with a back entrance. They turned it into a kitchenette that opens to a back deck.

The kitchen even has a gate and double sided serving cabinets so you can get your food without touching the servants. Yuck! The '39 breakfast nook addition has no gate as a "Servant Free Home" had become the norm. What a concept.

I needed a place for the laundry so I'm putting a stackable front load washer and dryer where the toilet closet used to be.

Adding a laundry requires a LOT of plumbing and duct work. 

From left to right (non-essential in parenthesis) - dedicated laundry circuit outlet, gas dryer hookup, (main water pipes), (2" galvanized toilet vent), laundry box: hot and cold supply lines and 2" drain for washer, and 4" dryer vent ducting to the outside

I'm happy to have all that done. Boy there's a lot of tubes in there! I'll follow up when the washer and dryer are installed.
