We didn’t expect to be doing the laundry room this summer. In fact, it was long down the line on projects due to the fact that it is so utilitarian, and we really needed to finish the deep cosmetic projects we’ve started. . . like the hallway, dining room, front porch and upstairs bath, maybe the patio too. But, when our washing machine passed away this early June, we knew it was time to do a quickie and put in a sink, along with painting, lighting and moving out the fridge.
The fridge was housed in part of the laundry room, as you can see from this side shot. It blocked the window and had lighting attached to the back. The hole in the bottom is due to a bored hound who was stuck in here one day. The fridge was sort of wedged into the corner, but really in the kitchen, with an odd sheetrock job around it. We tore it all out, much to the delight of our son and re-established that wall, along with electrical. Bill is putting in ceiling lights and freshening up the plumbing so we can add a small sink and counter. I could really use some cabinets and the whole room needed painting.
We had originally thought that putting in insulation would be ideal to keep the space warm because of pipes, but with little, time, we just went for it. I primed everything with two coats and then painted all walls, woodwork and floor in 2 days. Bill is going to put in a few shelves, rewire for ceiling lights and get the window in working order.
Washer should arrive today!
