Can we see the design of the whole space here? - It looks like you have put in a mud room, laundry room, dog shower, powder room, pantry and hallway, all in the space of a single garage stall. This is exactly what we need, a room that does all of that, in between the garage and the kitchen but we can't figure out the design!

What type of hinges or rollers did you use for the sliding shelf over the dog shower? Did the shelf attach on the left to anchor it and provide stability?

No, it is a two-piece friction fit counter which sets on a ledger all around. The wood is very stable and gravity helps keep it in place.

Wood Trim - Wondering what kind of wood was used for the door and window trim. Love the simple look, was wondering if this is done in MDF or something else. thanks!

What size boards did you use for the trim? It looks like the window head and jamb are different sizes.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This is the space between the single garage stall and the kitchen/dining room in the first volume, or form of the house. In a space approximately the same size as a single garage stall, Smith was able to fit a mudroom, dog shower, laundry room, powder room, pantry and hallway. "Because the owner has two big labs, we needed a sturdy, durable route to the back porch and yard for the dog traffic," Smith says. The floor is a multicolored slate that coordinates with the transferware tile composition in the dog shower.
