Labor Day Laundry List

I thought I'd post pictures of where we are with the Laundry Room prior to the 3 day weekend, then we can track our progress. To see the before pictures of the space, please check out my previous blog It All Comes Out in the Wash.

This is a view from the kitchen into the new laundry room.  You can see that once we close in the room, you will now exit the kitchen into the laundry room, then exit through the side door to get into the garage.
The space is about 9ft x 9ft.  Which is at least double the size of the original garage bathroom.
There is still plenty of garage space all around the new laundry room.  You could easily fit a car in there, if my driveway/garage was accessible by car.  The area to the right (behind the wall of the new room) is where my washer and dryer is currently.

Here is our Labor Day Weekend "Laundry List" for the Laundry Room Expansion:

  • Insulate the walls and ceiling.
  • Move hot water heater out of room and rerun pipes etc. for it.
  • Run electricity for Dryer, Fridge and outlets.
  • Hang sheet rock - float, sand repeat.
  • Change out window.
I think this is a good starting point.  We'll see how much we actually get done because it's supposed to rain all weekend and that could put a kink in our plans.
