Balhousie Wheatlands has a new state-of-the-art laundry facility. Dubbed ‘The Steamie’ after the Scottish term for washhouses, the laundry has been converted from a former stable block.
The new laundry, which has increased the laundry capacity by 50% and added eco-efficient washers and dryers, is part of a wider refurbishment programme at Wheatlands including 22 more bedrooms, two residents’ lounges, a new outdoor space and an exciting kitchen refit which is almost complete.
The laundry also has an ‘in’ and ‘out’ door system so all the dirty washing enters one door and only clean laundry comes out the other side to keep all the home’s residents’ clothes, as home manager Marjory Acheson describes, “spick and span”.
