The laundry is the only room in Red House that hasn't been renovated or updated. Fake wood panelling, vinyl floor, green tiles, hints of floral wallpaper and holes in the wall from when Boyf hung the TV in another room... Yeah, it really wasn't pretty.
It's almost hard to believe that it's gotten significantly worse since.
At least we now have date for those...interesting decorating choices - November 1979. And for the record, Hyperno did end up winning the Melbourne Cup that week. I googled. :)
