The Patriot | Clayton Homes - Laundry Room - the business side. Issue # 1 is that the hookups are backwards.I have decided that is not a problem. We have front loading washer/dryer, and their doors open all the way. They sit on pedestals which will become where Jim and I will put our dirty laundry. The small space is a pass through from the guest bath where they put their dirty towels, washcloths, etc. We will use it for our dirties and clothes basket storage.
