Who needs a dryer vent, anyhow?

Matt’s friend Rhett recently cleaned out his dryer vent and very generously offered to help Matt clean out ours. Since this is not something that you think of all that often, actually not at all during the past five years that we’ve lived here, we decided to take him up on the offer. This morning Matt went out to locate our dryer vent before Rhett got here… and discovered that we don’t have one! What we had instead was a large pile of lint building up in our attic. Nice. My thought was, some people pay to have insulation blown into their attic and we’re getting this blown in for free!  I was kidding of course, and Matt and Rhett were quick to point out that unfortunately dryer lint is very flammable so not something that you really want piling up in your attic. Ugh. So, Matt called Joe and Joe came to the rescue! After analyzing the situation the two of them made a trip to Lowes and a few hours later we now have a dryer vent. (Thanks Joe!)

    I did not even know there was such a thing as a dryer vent for a house. Please remind me of this, Julie, when I finally buy a house.
