Up until now, we have been hanging the clothes on a twenty five foot line I had strung up under the porch of the cabin. It ran along the west side, but even so, it was under the porch roof, and didn't receive much sunlight or breeze.
It also ran past our living room window and so our view was often blocked by the sight of my tidy whities enhancing our supper meal.
This past weekend I obtained the last few rough cut boards to complete the porch floor completely around the cabin. This opened up that side for better access, and as such I mounted a new drying line to see how well it fit in with our lifestyle.
|So nice to have these last boards down!|
So, this time I put up a wall mounted umbrella type drying on one of the support posts. The caveat was that if I mounted it out from under the porch, we wouldn't be able to reach it to hang the clothes. If I mounted it under the porch, we couldn't take advantage of the increased sun and breeze that clothes could get from being mounted away from the cabin. There was also the added disadvantage that a mount under the porch would again disturb our ability to access that space.
|It even has a nice cover when it folds up.|
|Lots of space when opened.|
|The hinges let me swing it in and out with ease.|
|The latch keeps it from swinging about.|
|Ahhh, air dried laundry!|
