The Wife and I were walking through one of the new houses they are building in our neighborhood and noticed that the connections for the washer and dryer were reversed. It seemed odd for a brand new home since the arrangement was really only suitable for older top load models. I’m sure it was at the request of the new owners; but it’s going to be a BIG nuisance when they upgrade. Or when someone buys their house and doesn’t notice. We’ve seen similar changes many times over the years in the homes in our neighborhood. Some modifications don’t seem like much; but make a home a LOT harder to sell. You should get what you want if you’re building a custom home; but purchasers don’t always seem to be aware of the consequences.
