Shoot the Laundry

I saw this article on Houzz.  It has some neat ideas on how to put a laundry chute in your home.  

When I was a kid, I always thought a laundry chute was just the neatest idea ever.  It might actually make laundry fun.  What kid wouldn’t get a kick out of launching their dirty clothes down two story chute to the basement? Of course, laundry wouldn’t the only thing getting dropped down to the basement.  Has anybody seen the cat?
