Well, I must admit I am just itching to demolish this room. Waiting while we finish other things and manage the budget is truly an exercise is self control for me. Huh, I must growing as a person or something...HA!
What is even more amazing to me is I posted these floor plans for this remodel in 2013!!
Original proposed layout
In living color
|Pocket door instead of swing in door|
|No door for laundry room, open to the kitchen|
Materials on hand for the bathroom portion of the remodel..
- The toilet is only a few years old and works just fine, so that will be reused.
- light fixture, towel bar, tp holder
- a vanity cabinet
- I have a countertop we can cut down if needed but would prefer not to do so
- floor tile but I would like to install linoleum that matches the laundry room portion
- backsplash tile
- I have lots of paint and accessories to decorate
To do list, materials and services needed for the bathroom/ laundry room remodel/ gut job
- pocket door, pocket door framing kit and pocket door hardware for bathroom
- New window?
- New wiring, outlets and switches (including moving them to the correct locations)
- Services of the electrician we used from our kitchen remodel--expand the panel and dedicated breaker for laundry room
- insulation...Considering some sound/ thermal rated insulation--still researching options
- drywall, drywall mud , drywall screws and seam tape
- Molding, trim and baseboards
- Build a wall recessed cubby (between the studs) storage for the plunger, etc...
- Build a wall recessed cubby (between the studs) for broom, mop, swiffer, etc
- Build/ install a wall recessed cubby (between the studs) ironing board storage
- new plumbing pipes and connections to move the sink and toilet
- services of a certified plumber to move waste line and tap into the stack, the hubbs can do the rest
- new plumbing to move the washer connection
- new dryer vent
- new wall mounted dryer plug
- utility sink--maybe...the smallest I could find is 18 inch width. I hope to fit it in the plan. Possible DIY instead of the plastic utility tub??
- Cabinet and countertop for the "laundry folding" area...Maybe a DIY pallet project? I have a super cool idea for the countertop!
- I have a DIY project for a folding, wall mounted drying rack
- Install repurposed or upcycled chandelier--'cause if I am going to do laundry I am going to do it in style!
- DIY some funky laundry art

I don't know about y'all, but I find this pretty exciting! I love having future projects to work towards. Now, if only all those unfinished projects would be finished AND crossed off the list.
