Since our laundry room and long-term food storage will be in the basement we are looking at installing a dumbwaiter in the pantry/mudroom on the main floor.  This will ease the transport of laundry and other items without having to use stairs.

The manual style dumbwaiters are less than half the cost of the electric models.
