Front Porch Clothesline
Rain, snow or sunshine, itís possible to hang out laundry with Larry Millerís clothesline system. Two powder-coated steel ends conveniently fold up against the ceiling of a porch or overhang when not in use. A 45-degree support rod with a turnbuckle tightener keeps the four lines taut when the clothesline is down.
  Miller, owner of L&C Welding LLC, in Shipshewana, Ind., built the clothesline at a customerís request 3 years ago and has been busy making them ever since, mostly for Amish customers.
  ďWet clothes are heavy, so 30 ft. is the maximum span between supports,Ē Miller says, noting that an extra line holder could be added in the center for longer spans. The legs are lag bolted into the ceiling with two bolts.
  The ends telescope so they can adjust from 26 to 38 in. He builds two sizes: up to 9 ft. 6 in. for outside porches and 7 ft. 6 in. for basements. He carries two styles, plain and one with a decorative scroll.
  Prices range from $235 to $290 (plus shipping).
