    Very nice!

    One of my favorite outside smells is of a nice bonfire and I just LOVE the smell it puts on my clothes after we sit near it! I bet the "fresh" scent of outdoors is nice too!

    I don't have a clothesline, since I am at college, but I have a clothesrack and I hang everything to dry on that. Mostly stuff I don't want to shrink, but it always smells so good in my room after I do laundry.

    Quote:REALLY??? The smell of campfire makes me sick the next day! LOL Probably because we drink around the campfire and the next day that smokey smell is the LAST thing I want to smell. [​IMG]

    Don't have a clothes line. 10/12 months of the year... it will get rained on, so the laundry will be more wet than it would be from the washer!!! lol

    Oh man! I have been begging for my clothesline for three years! DH bought the stuff for it about two weeks ago but got sidetracked trying to finish the coop and run. Right now he is outside finishing digging my rose bed and slapping mosquitoes while I keep sneaking in the house and getting on here. I cannot complain! Better get my hiney back out there and help him! Your line looks great! All it needs now are some quilts hanging in the breeze...

    I could not live w/o a clothes line. right now I just have an umbrella line, but soon to be replaced with iron T frames. i just have to go dig them out of an aquaintance's backyard and install them. I am so cheap that I hang out in winter until my fingers can't take the cold, and same in the spring. Before I go to bed, I check to see what the weather will be like to see if i can hang up laundryoutside. i think I;m obsessed with fresh line-dried laundry. [​IMG]

    Quote:Nice work--but I would have to say that they would not last where i live. Our usual windspeed here is 20km/hr, with gusts on top of that. It must be nid=ce to not have so much wind.....

    I have several of these folding things I take out. I had to dig up the line for our veggie garden. Still waiting on a new one.

    I have been looking for clothes line poles for weeks! All I could find was aluminum at Lowes for $40! Could you share what kind of lumber and sizes he used? I could definately do something like this if I had a place to start. I currently have a line tied from a tree to the side of my house [​IMG]
