A New Laundry Room


We do have a laundry room in our house. The only way to get to it originally was through a door outside and I hate having to go outside to do laundry. Feels sort of...counter-productive? The way it was added on to the house left some room for improvement though, as this big blank wall had no major plumbing lines through it, yay!

The goal was to add a doorway to this wall that led right into the laundry room. We enlisted our fathers for some help with this of course.

This is how my dad likes to makes shopping lists
Once the measuring was done and studs were removed, the drywall was cut. Grayson helped by vacuuming all the dust before it could get all over the kitchen.

Link wasn't really much help, but he was cute. Here he is poking his head through the old dryer vent hole.

Here are some more before pictures. So far we just have the door installed. We still need to insulate and re-drywall all the outer walls, re-wire some electric stuff, and paint. I'm still deciding if we should paint the floor or get some indoor-outdoor carpeting. I'll have all the after pictures up when it's all done!
