Laundry Switcheroo

Last Tuesday we started our laundry room project. We decided that we needed another shower in our house, since having only one just wasn't working well anymore. We had our laundry room/half bath on the first floor, and our plan was to move the laundry room upstairs to the walk-in cedar closet and install a shower in the first floor bathroom.

The kids helped with the demo in the closet.
It is adjacent to the bathroom, so plumbing wasn't too much of a problem. We wired in the electrical, and by about 10:00 that evening, we had a new laundry room.

I'm so thankful for big, strong boys to help carry the appliances upstairs. A couple years ago it would have been me grunting and groaning, trying to get them moved.

They're good sports about it.

We have added a 6 foot countertop for folding, and were able to keep Hudson's dresser and hanging clothes inside as well. I still have some organizing to do, and may add some more shelving or a cupboard, but for now it's functioning well with no leaks. It's a lot easier to get everyone's clothes put away, too.
