Do you want to know one of the best perks of being a blogger? It’s when someone contacts you and says, “Hey, I was wondering if you wanted to do a review on one of our products?”
Uhhh, heck to the yes I do.
That’s how I came to have this awesome Homesteader Drying Rack from the Homestead-Store. You guys, this company has so many neat things! You REALLY need to check them out, and then give them some support because they are a homesteading family just like us trying to make a living and maintain a homestead. Dreamers and doers of homesteading must unite and stick together, right?
I received the package last Friday via UPS, and we had to leave for homeschool co-op before I could even attempt to do anything but take out the pieces and look at the directions. Saturday morning, I decided to take on the project and put it together myself. I wanted to see how easy it would be for me to assemble it instead of my husband. Well, I’m happy to say that I completely assembled it myself without any problems.
Once it was assembled, I moved it out onto my covered porch. I have wanted a clothesline for awhile now, but it’s just one of those things that hasn’t happened yet. This may definitely replace my need for a clothesline. I was able to fit a full load of laundry on it, and it sits under my covered porch so that I do not have to worry about rain. This winter I will be able to set it up in my basement and hang the clothes down there. I am super excited about this product and excited to see how much money it saves not running the dryer all summer. I have purchased cheap drying racks from stores before and this is not cheaply made at all. It is very sturdy and made of solid wood. As I was assembling it, I was quite impressed with the heaviness and quality of the wood. The ones I have owned before were super tippy and flexible.
