The projects last year with the bathroom and the kitchen remodel took almost 3 months to complete and were very intense, which led me to not want to tackle anything more than work in my garden. (In fact, some things are still left to do like put handles on the cabinets and touch-up painting, but the outside is too hard to resist!)
However, the laundry/office/back entry space has been mostly untouched since the remodel to my master bedroom. Bedroom and hall remodel 2010 The only thing that was done there was to texture the walls and paint. This room is really just a dumping ground and a pass through room, has it doesn't have a purpose except for laundry. My idea is to take out all the ugly shelves and put in some nicer ones with cabinets and such, and turn the room into an office space as well. Here are the before pictures, this is a big room by the way, so these are large shelf spaces.
|This is me trying to get a picture of the layout for you- large recessed shelves made of chip board and a funky laundry space|
|These shelves are 94" wide by 82" tall.. lots of space just not pretty.|
|Laundry room has these bifold doors|
|Took them off and gave them to Habitat ReStore.|
|First we need to move out the washer and dryer.. or maybe just the dryer because the washer is too heavy!|
|Hinge A goes into hole 3 and bracket f screws into the hypoteneuse of the circumference of the square of Pi.|

It is hard to imagine for those that don't live in an area like this, or who never had to evacuate from a fire, but there is a kind of PTSD right now. I actually get choked up when I see a fire because I know that if it gets out of control, I can't stop it. There is nothing that I can do and I could potentially lose everything that I have done to bring this house to where it is now. Whew... this is making me consider selling the house. But then I look at my garden and my greenhouse, my beautiful kitchen and bathroom and everything else that I have done to this house and think.. how can I leave? Sorry about this reflective stuff, it has been weighing on me lately.. HERE IS A SUNFLOWER TO MAKE IT ALL BETTER!
