Oh boy, another home project

July 9th, 2015 at 12:00 pm

We have this extra room in our home on the second floor with no closet so technically is not considered a bedroom. When we first bought the house we thought of using it as a humungous closet or creating a laundry room. Fast forward eight months later we opted to convert the room to a laundry room. Two flights of narrow stairs to the basement to do laundry is just down right dangerous and taking a toll on my bad knees. My brother-in-law, who is a general contractor, is doing the work and I am super excited to have a laundry on the second floor of the house. We are paying cash for the bathroom reno and laundry room. I will post pictures when the project is completed.

    I've always enjoyed a main floor laundry...until this next rental home where it will be upstairs with the bedrooms. Of course, that is where most laundry is generated!

    Brilliant to have your laundry area near the bedrooms where most of the laundry is generated. I've always believed if men did the laundry our homes wouldn't mostly have laundry in the basement. Why aren't the washer/dryer adjacent to the main bathrm?

    Sounds like a good plan!

    The laundry room for my apartment building is right next door to me. Smile Not *quite* as convenient as having it inside my home, but pretty darn close!
