New laundry room

When you own a home there is always something to do. Even just the maintenance takes time. But when you add honey do projects you can keep busy for years. That is the case with our 100 year old home. We have lived here for 43 years. It is a wonderful old house with beautiful woodwork and lots of room. There a a few things they did not consider when they built houses 100 years ago. Closets,bathrooms or laundry areas.Well the kitchen was also very basic. Over the years we have done almost every thing you can do to a house besides build a new one.

A year ago we talked about how to put a shower in the main floor 1/2 bath. Decided to use what was the laundry area and the 1/2 bath to make a larger bathroom and move the washer /dryer to the back porch. Making the bath bigger is next winters project.

 We have been working on this space for a year. There was no hurry and last year the out side siding took priority.

There was a lot to do in this space.Floor repair, new windows,new walls,new wood ceiling, insulation,heat,plumbing. Mr. T is a master of all these things. I am the gopher/painter. This picture is of what we had to start with.As you can see this space was once the outside of the house. All the old siding was removed and walls insulated.

 A new wood ceiling, light and ceiling fan.

The cement was poured and the pad for the washer and dryer made. Mr.T and his helper. Nice job!

Here is a peek of the finished room.I will post more pictures tomorrow. j.link to
