let the sunshine in - the laundry / mudroom

A small addition that makes a big difference. Whereas before the family had to walk outside to get to the garage, the new mudroom / laundry room now connects the main living spaces to the garage and backyard. With amble space for cubbies, washer, dryer, hanging clothes, a desk, this new space serves as the transition between outside and inside, keeping the dirt, snow and mud out of the house.

The room is about 17 feet by 10 feet. Behind the photographer there's a small desk for mail, etc.

It is a porcelain tile from Chadwicks in Libertyville IL. Unfortunately, the exact manufacturer and color number has been lost in the abyss of my filing cabinet.
