MUD ROOM & FIRST FLOOR LAUNDRY
See there's a method to my madness :-). I'm so glad they made this an option in Victoria Falls as it wasn't in the previous Victoria floorplan. Although my dream is second floor laundry, first floor laundry is way better than going in the basement. I love that we have shelves in the laundry room. Plus you know the best part of having a laundry room in your first house...NEW WASHER & DRYER! Although we're going to wait until after we close, like leave from closing with the keys in hand and head straight to the store, I know what I want. Whirlpool WFW95HEX or WFW97HEX washers and the matching gas dryer.
The mud room will help shield our guests from seeing our laundry when they enter and exit through the garage. I would like to find a clever way for shoe storage( I'm thinking of a nice storage bench) in the mud room for the shoes we wear the most. This way they're easily accessible and we don't have a shoe pile when we take our shoes off. I would also like to put in a bookshelf to help organize the recyclables. I saw on the HGTV Green Home and have dreamed of this since.
Update to our settlement time. It's scheduled for 11:00 am May 6th. WE CAN'T WAIT!
