This man looks relaxed, see the gaze off into no where? He has absolutely nothing on his mind.
Definitely has time on his hands.
Yep, I think that these hands...
as wonderful and talented as they are,
need something to do.
This is a problem, that Houston couldn't solve. This mess is my laundry room, or laundry closet is a more accurate description. The location of this closet is also a problem. It is in the LIVING room hall. Very nice, it took a real genius in design to come up with this one. That would be a big pile of bubble wrap, just in case you were trying to figure out what that thing is.
The now empty room adjacent to the nightmare of the laundry closet is small for a bedroom. The plumbing is easily accessible, so to speak. Easy for me to talk about. The hunny has a very smart buddy, the two of them together can do anything, even point out the best assets for a good photo op.
The new laundry ROOM needs a utility sink, $88 including all the hardware with a pull out faucet, now that is FRUGAL! The room is also going to be a work shop for my genius girl to paint pottery. I am hoping the whole family will get in on the pottery act. I think the man with those hands could learn to throw some awesome pots on our wheel. He's got the hands. We do need to find a kiln. There is a perfect place for it right outside the room on our little patio. The walls are brick and the electric outlet is already there. Wallah. I see a future Etsy shop in our lives!
This is what the used to be laundry closet looks like now. So much better. It is going to be a very well designed pantry. It is going to be perfect because I will mastermind it. After which the man with the talented hands will carry it out and improve upon the perfect design making it ultra perfect. This change people will transform my life. Storage is a serious detrimental issue in this house.
I love construction, I just love tearing it up. This is promising! The new laundry closet is already framed, the plumbing changed over and the sink is hooked up! Tomorrow they will move the electric wiring for the dryer. Another wonderful change is that the washer will be on the left and the dryer will be on the right. A left handed man designed my house. My dishwasher is to the left of my sink in the kitchen and the dryer was also on the left of the washer. I am giving him the benefit of the doubt that he was not really that stupid.
The way the dryer was vented raises another question of intelligence. It had to go up the back of the wall threw the entire 2 story house to the roof. That is a lot of heat, and a serious kink at the tubing launch, not to mention lint back up issues. The dryer will now have direct access to the outside, sweet. I do think making my small narrow 4th bedroom/office into a fantastic utility room can only do good for us and any future buyer. The hunny will also be building some cabinets into the room and some open shelving. We will stain the concrete floor and re paint of course. Any votes for colors? I was thinking maybe a rich green. It is a very bright sunny room, the sunniest room in the house. Any decorators just itching to make a suggestion?
It looks this dark here because I took this with the flash off, it's sunny believe me. Wonder what they will get done today? You can count on the fact that I will catch them in action with my trusty little camera. This is what I call therapeutic!
One more thing. How about a GIVE AWAY! I found these real silk scarves in the closet. Some one crafty as in clever might have a use for them. There are people who sew and make wonderful things out of recycled fabrics, could you use silk?
Leave a comment if your interested and we will put your name in the hunny hat. Will draw on Wednesday evening sometime.
