Laundry room

Aloha…

Okay, Lets talk about service area. In this case, I’ll talk about laundry room.

I’m visiting Houzz and search laundry room+small+wet.

Laundry room. yes, i want to know how to arrange the laundry stuff.

Small. sure, we have limited space, to do this activity.

Wet. It’s always on my mind that laundry activity will involve water, detergent and washing machine. So the room MUST have the wet area.

But, after searching the laundry room, most of them have 2 big machines which are washing & tumble dry machine. Also, the have little tiny wet area and it’s only a sink.

I don’t say it’s bad arrangement, but I think every home has it’s own arrangement depends on the user’s habit.

Above good picture example does not meet my requirement for my laundry room wanna be. Here are my laundry room requirement regarding my washing habit.

    1. As many variables are limited [electricity power, room space, budgeting], than we will only use 1 machine, which is automatic washing machine complete from wash-spin-dry.  Branded top loading machine is more affordable than the branded front loading one. The twintub washing machine is the cheapest than others, but for washing require more energy to move washed-soaped clothes from one tub to bucket to rinse and lose the the detergent. Then we have to remove them to them drying tub. Alot of energy and time spent :(.
    2. Since sometimes I’m not satisfied with the cleaness of the washing machine, therefore I have to separate the white, light color and the dark color cloth and then soak them grouply into a bucket of water+detergent. Then brush some part of the garment such as inner collar, collar, sleeve and front pocket on the sshirt. It requires large wet area instead of a sink for soaking. So large enough wet area with proper water supply is a must. Sometimes, I usually use the drain water for soaking the most dirty fabric/mop. It’s great to lose the oil on the fabric. Or sometimes I use drain water to mop the exterior floor like floor in terrace :).
    3. As the dried clothes out from washing machine are not totally dry, I have to hang it on a dryer. Then, if it’s indoor, i love to have the skylight roof so the sunshine can be in but it’s safe from suddenly rain.  At least, the room has air circulation through big window.

      love the idea of drying

Ravenia#1 : Basic Plan

Aloha,

In the morning and start to post a new thing, we’re happy as we received a comment from someone in this post. Thanks Sean, for stepping by and leave comment about how houzz has influenced us :D.

Here’s the basic plan.

The front  direction is North East. The front room (white floor) size is 2.5m x 3m. The bathroom size is 1.5m x 2m. Total length-width is 12m x 12m.

The total building area is approximaly 36m sq.

The width house itself is 6m.  I’ve put the original position of windows and doors. I’ve modify the surrounding walls height 80cm, in fact, there’s no surrounding wall & fence. We have to build it.
