Good Questions: Experience with Washer/Dryer Combos?

Hello AT!

I just moved to a darling studio apartment in Chicago, Illinois that is quite small. Yet, using the AT website, I have been able to really create effective storage, clean lines and spaces, and awesome color combinations, thanks in part to pictures of the 2006 smallest apartment contest and the fall color's contest as well!

However, I have run into a problem. It's my laundry room. It's cold, filled with bicycles, and overrun with bugs! I hate doing my laundry but there is no laundry mat within a reasonable distance. I have been looking into portable washers and dryers--just little things for very small loads. I remembered that when I was in Ireland, the Europeans had really been forthright and created the washer/dryer combo! Here is a link.

Now...Here is my question--has anyone out there in AT-land purchased one of these units? Or do they know of a portable or very small washer and dryer (seperate even!) they would recommend? While I am on a budget, I would splurge on a really great quality washer and dryer, just to avoid the scary, creepy hole-in-the-wall that is my laundry room.

Thanks :)
