This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Current Issues

I'm enjoying life in my new tiny home. But something bothered me when it came to washing clothes. My sim was having to go outside and use the manual wash bucket to wash her clothes, she was scrubbing away in the rain. I hadn't got enough space left in my tiny home to fit a washing machine and dryer. So I thought, why can't I fit this into my spare kitchen counter like a dishwasher? So I got to work in making this a reality.

This is a NOT a replacer, it will add a new object

I've squashed parts of the original washer and dryer meshes to make them roughly the same size as the dish washer, and made them snap into counters.

Catalogue details:
They can be found in the same place as the original washer and dryer (Appliances > Misc)
The prices are also the same as the originals.



*I wouldn't recommend placing these on the end, as there is a small gap between the washer/dryer and the counter (where it cuts away parts of the counter to fit the object) which is visible from some angles.

Yes! Thank you. I have my washing machine under the counter in my kitchen irl. It's so common in the UK to have washing machines just built into the kitchen, it frustrated me there was no option to do that in the Sims. But now there is, thank you!
