Moving on Up

I am pretty sure I mentioned this before, but if not I will now.  I hate having my laundry room downstairs.  In new builds, laundry rooms are often built upstairs, so that is really all we know.  In this home, the laundry room is right off of the garage and I can’t even explain what a hassle it is.  I know, first world problems, but with 2 kids (one who poops through his clothes 238927483 times a day), and loads and loads and loads of laundry, having the laundry room in this location is just such an inconvenience.  Since this house is 5 bedrooms upstairs, we figured we would convert the smallest room into a laundry room because it really is too small to use as a bedroom.  The room was a fully paneled room which made it look dark and dated.  That was obviously the first thing to go after the carpet was ripped out.  There was some damage to the drywall under the paneling, so instead of replacing the drywall, I think we might do shiplap but we are still going back and forth on it.  I feel like I am losing sleep over these decisions more and more every week!DSC_0123DSC_0125When we decided on moving the laundry upstairs, we first thought that we would tap into the plumbing from the boys’ bathroom, but our contractor thought the washing machine and dryer should go on the other wall, so they built a false wall to make all of the plumbing work. To save some money, David will be doing the floors, cabinets, and painting.  Honestly at this point, I don’t even care what the room looks like, I just am looking forward to not walking up and down the stairs all day in between laundry loads!5458F624-1675-4F8C-BF25-4B34DB12728150C7C110-F86D-44DB-83AE-38174713C875Happy Friday, I hope you have a much more easy laundry experience this weekend than I will have!
