New Laundry Room – Before & After

Hi Steffi, one of my 101 in 1001 goals was to complete a home project. The yoga room is almost done, but the project we started over a year ago is now basically done. I say basically because it’s not pretty, but I do have a laundry room IN the house now. We had to make a new doorway, re-wire some electrical, insulate the walls, hang new drywall, and move the washer and dryer. It was quite the project!

Before. The only way in was through this door in the backyard. The bedroom door is right there also, but that was three doors to go through to do laundry!

There’s the old entry door where you got in from outside, behind these helpful men!

They ripped off the old drywall/pegboard and found no plumbing lines through where we wanted the new door. Woo!

Figuring out measurements for the new door. That was legitimately my dad’s shopping list. On a piece of wood. Not gunna lie, I didn’t have much to do with this project other than documentation haha.

Derp! Look at this puppy! He was trying to be helpful. We covered up this old dryer vent hole and made a new one on the other side of the room where the dryer would be.

Here’s the huge blank wall in the kitchen where the new doorway was going to be.

Grayson vacuumed the dust as my dad was cutting out the drywall. This was very helpful as it didn’t make a big mess in my kitchen!

After

We still wanted to cover up the old doorway so we took the door out and put a piece of siding on the outside.

They insulated everything and put up new drywall. Right next to the dryer is where the old door was. We added a spare bit of carpet so it wasn’t just concrete flooring.

After! I even have shelving. And the kitty box no longer has to be in the kitchen. I got a little cabinet unit for my birthday as well that will go in here once Grayson helps me put it together. There’s not a whole lot of space so my parents bought cabinets that were only a foot deep, but I can put cleaning supplies and leftover paint cans in there!

It may not be pretty, but it’s functional and it’s accessible from inside the house so I’ve been very happy with it! A huge thank you to the wonderful men in my life! ❤
