Hi there gmgeith. All of the paint colors in the showhouse can be found on this page: http://www.notsobigshowhouse.com/2011/about/showhouseinfo.asp. The color on the back wall of the laundry/hobby room is Sherwin Williams 7527 'Nantucket Dune', and above the washer and dryer is Sherwin Williams 7729 'Edamame'. Thanks for your question!

Another option is to plumb an additional secondary shutoff that is in an accessible location, such as under a laundry sink.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Tour Sarah Susanka's Newest Right-Sized House
At the top of the stairs is a laundry/crafts room. This room provides plenty of storage space and counters for folding. A sink provides a handy cleanup spot for crafts and home projects.
Shane D. Inman added this to Designer's Touch: 10 Tidy Laundry Rooms
6. Double duty. Adding a desk (either freestanding or built in) allows you to double up on daily chores. Sit comfortably while paying bills, making chore lists and planning dinner for the week, all while paying attention to the laundry.
Samantha Schoech added this to 15 Rooms That Excel at Double Duty
The Multitasking Laundry RoomA laundry room in and of itself seems like luxury. Combining it with a home office or a workshop is brilliant. I mean, why not pay the bills, write a novel or check your email while the clothes are agitating?
