Arts and crafts: mud room

Nearly complete. Everything is in its place and working.

The washer and dryer stick out about 3″ too far. That clips the drawer to the right.

I hooked up all the wiring and plumbing last night.

The countertop is black epoxy on 3/4″ plywood. It turned out better than I expected. I’ll see how well it holds up to scratches before doing the same in the kitchen.

Nothing to do now but finish painting the cabinet doors, install a decorative backsplash, and trim around the window.

    very impressive!

    my bff’s husband does all his own house things, too. he remodeled their kitchen several years ago, and it looks awesome. however, when he showed it to me he pointed out a similar measuring error.

    it’s funny how we only see our errors when everyone else sees all the other stuff that’s good and great.

      It’s really funny that no matter how many times I measured that, there isn’t enough room

        i’d think it’d be a lot more irritating than funny 😉

        my first Husband and i built two houses together – well, we hired someone else to do it, we didn’t do the actual work. but we were really great at things like that – things that are supposed to be stressful on marriages were easy for us. anyway, the refrigerator space in the kitchen in our first house was like that. we had to search far and wide to find a fridge that wasn’t too deep for the space.

      And that’s only the first room I have completed in a whole-house renovation.

        yeah … but it’s just about completed! and if the whole house was done, what would you do with your time then?! 🙂

        with the microwave in there, are you planning on this to double as your kitchen till that’s done?

        great sink and faucet for the laundry room. had a sink in the laundry room of the second house we built, and i loved it.

        I’m thinking of it as a split kitchen. A single kitchen cant be large enough In this house.

        ‘split kitchen’ … two separate kitchens? or one very large kitchen that can be split into multiple work spaces?

        One large kitchen, divided into two spaces. Lots of extra cabinet and counter top space. It’s my own idea

        i love that idea. you’ll definitely want two sink areas in there. have you searched the internet for kitchen floor plans? the second house we built had two islands in the kitchen – it was pretty cool. i’ve never had 2 sinks in the kitchen, but i’ve sure wished i had many-a-time 🙂

        i’m guessing you’ll also have some sort of seating area in the kitchen, too – and island with bar stools, or space for a farm table (don’t know the style you’re going for). so many cool options out there especially if you’re able to build things yourself cause then you’re only limited to your imagination. so.very.cool!

        The house is too small for such grand plans. That’s why a split kitchen.

        there are some really amazing ideas out there for small spaces – like drop down table surfaces. i hope you post pics of your next projects.

    My house was built in 1909. Needless to say barely room for a kitchen, let alone a split kitchen or an arts and crafts mud room. I vacillate between getting a house with room for that kind of stuff and staying in the house that I really like and too which I have become acclimated. Meanwhile the restoration project goes much more slowly because I don’t actually enjoy doing that kind of stuff myself. I mostly do it when I am so bored that I can’t think of anything else to do.

    Nice job on yours so far.
