Solar Powered Laundry Room

Ok, I’m nuts, but most of us already knew that. Recently I have started thinking that I would like to build a solar powered laundry “house”. The Modern Day Redneck has already built a solar powered bath house and as neat as that is, I would prefer a laundry house. Currently we wash our laundry in the basement during the cold months and in the bucket outside in the warm months. We hang our laundry to dry most of the year.
I envision a house that would hold the washer, dryer, and a laundry sink, with some shelving and an indoor clothes line. It wouldn’t use traditional lighting, but would still be light enough to function in there. The power to run the machines would all be solar. I haven’t figure out yet where the water would come from. Not sure if a system of utilizing rain water would work or not. It’s just a thought for now, but if I could find someone with the know how to help me plan it, I would definitely try and make it a reality!
