New House Series

So, Bob and I have had plentiful requests for new house pictures. I figure the only way to do this is a room at a time, as I find time! So, the first room is the laundry room. I took these so Cindy could help me figure out where I should keep sorted dirty laundry, but now all of you get to benefit!
For those of you who live close, sorry - you've already seen it!


This picture has on of my favorite things on it. The utility sink on the right of the picture has a small drinking fountain faucet attached so the kids can get their own drinks. The cabinet guy is in the process of making a pull out stool that will fit just inside the cabinet so the kids will stop upending my garbage can to reach it!

The mud room half could still use (a) hooks which we have purchased but have not had time to install as the for sale house is still not all the way finished and needs to be worked on first and (b) a coat of brown paint on the bench part to hide all the dirt and mud that comes in with these kids!
Here you can see that it is a half mudroom and half laundry room.
And lastly, the only person who loved the laundry sorter from Wal mart was Evan! I though it was possibly the silliest contraption ever! Built to hold about 1 person's clothes! Maybe I should put it together one more time and fill it with clothes and see how much it really holds before I return it.

I am in love with your laundry room! Is that a bad love affair? Do you think Brent will mind?

Ahhhh yes!!!!!!!!!!!! THESE are the kids of pictures we have been needing!!!! Finally!!!!!!!! DETAILS! And a full room at at a time. I am finally feeling my hunger being filled. At least for the laundry room. One pic is missing. From the door facing in. Please rectify this as soon as possible. I am assuming there might be a window, and you know how I feel about windows. And how about the view????

and you are right, this is the best house ever with the drinking fountain and everything.

I also once bought the same laundry sorter and took it back in a snit. I mean, cheese! I hope the one you and I talked about is bigger.

Oh what a beautiful room! I can't believe that you have nicer cabinets in my laundry room than I have in my whole house! And a drinking fountain of your own! Although you are living in a fantasy world, really, if you think your kids are going to get a step out of a cabinet, use it to access said drinking fountain, and then put it back away? I think now.

BTW--I'm glad not to be the only one in the world with a mismatched washer & drier....

Is it common to have washers and dryers that DO match? I thought our 'set' (circa 1970?) was supposed to be a complimentary rust and avacado.

Amber--I think we are lone reeds in a world proclaiming that of course it is worth an additional $600 to upgrade both appliances so that they match....
