I've been scrapbooking even before I knew it was a thing. I have a space in my basement with a large table, work space for 4 people and lots and lots of embellishments and paper. There is never enough paper. I constantly reorganize my space not knowing if I want to be organized to stay or to go.

My sister and I did a scrapbook for our brother's 50th birthday. I focused on family history and my sister collected photos from all our relatives which she painstakingly resized and edited at a Walmart photo machine. Fortunately, my grandmother turned out to be a very good amateur photographer (surprising since she was born in 1903, ran a farm and had 8 children!) and even more fortunate was the fact that she must have carried the camera with her and got many great "day in the life" moments around the family farm. It was wonderful to hear the stories that accompanied the photos from my Dad and his seven sisters. We created, what we feel, is a family treasure and we were smart enough to create three of them so that my brother's gift turned into a gift for all three of us.

When we retired, we moved into a 2200 sq ft open floor plan. It has 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. I would like to remodel the master bathroom because there is a lot of wasted space, something I deplore.The open living space is just right for kids and grandkids, friends and when someone needs to stay the night after a party. I am building an art studio 40'x40' for my paintings. Some of them can get quiet large. That is the only thing I really need to do now but would not trade my house for the world.

I would say small (973 sq feet) since I currently have my brother, my daughter and her best friend in a two bedroom apartment. They all promise me that they will be out by the end of the year. Just kidding cause as long as my daughter and family is fine then so am I. I would love one more room if could for a den/library area.

I keep tools, etc. in baskets on shelves in my utility room. My handyman thinks this one is hilarious--my basket of round things: my tape measure, duct tape, painter's tape, packing tape, spools of string and wire, pads for under furniture, and so on. It works for me!

I hate to be Debbie Downer...... but every item in the drawer has a better and more logical place: Tool box, office, desk, wrap center, whatever.... etc. No, I don't have a junk drawer : ) .

J K for us the reverse works -- we use "pay as you throw" bags for trash, so I use the compactor for that and only put one tiny bag a week at the curb, next to an enormous trash bin on wheels every two weeks for recycling. I do have an attractive coppered bin in the kitchen and room in the garage for it though, so the volume of recycling doesn't bother me. And we rarely cook with meat so there's really nothing in the trash that stinks if it's there for a week before the compactor is full. On rare occasions if I have trash that might smell it goes in the freezer 'til trash day.

Sounds like you're thinking through your needs and options, and if crushing your recyclables saves needed space, then it's a great idea; go for it.

I use this article to give other point of view, those who trapped in bad design circle. Professionals seems pat each other's back and sure that rules (or breaking them), concepts and guide lines are excellent and novice are eager to follow them, too. Here some pictures my husband took for me, later I checked and I didn't like them, nether our daughter. The prices between 500-700k, rare house cost less around here. Who thinks they are for poor people? Or who think they were not designed by architect? And who think there school for bad architect (for poor folks) and school for good architect (custom) for 10% of population? I believe they are universal professionals in first place, then they have different work places and experience.

I would add a ninth idea except it rarely happens: “They see how the design worked out and learn from it”. Steward Brand’s excellent book, How Buildings Learn, talks at length about how architects rarely if ever actually evaluate the use of a building once completed much to the chagrin of those that have to live and/or work in the buildings. Similar points in Michael Pollan’s also excellent book, A Place of My Own

The corner cabinet is the laundry chute. The laundry room is downstairs and there is a bathroom right above where the laundry chute connects for the upstairs bedrooms. The cabinets below the chute are for storage. Hope that helps!

Hi there,

There are several options that can be used in these corner cupboard situation. You should talk to a cabinet manufacturer to see what is available in your area. In this specific situation - because of the washer/dryer on one and sink on the other, I believe we left it as blank space.

Hope that helps,

I would add that a utility sink is a must to help soak stains and wash hands.

I actually miss my basement laundry because it gave me lots of folding and sorting and hanging space, and any mess was out of view. I even miss the one I shared long ago with 5 other apartments because I could do three loads at one time, had a lot of folding space, and an had an entire room to hang laundry, plus a play area with an old sofa, table and room for my son to ride his tricycle, and a fair number of windows, not far from the front and back entrances. Now if I didn't have to share with quite so many people who didn't remove their laundry promptly, and climb 3 flights of stairs, it would have been ideal!

I now have a laundry nook in a hallway, and not having enough sorting, hanging and folding space in plain view is a problem, Oh well, it beats having to go outside and through the Bilco doors, especially in the wintertime. The previous owner did that for 50 years, and used a wringer washer and no dryer!

Wolf is the goldbar standard for ranges, like Bosch for dishwashers. I got a 6-burner Wolf rangetop about 5 years back, and I still absolutely adore it. I LOVE to cook, and very much enjoy the power of the BTUs to sear a steak perfectly, and the phenomenal control of the second stage simmer burners (on each burner) to have a whisper of heat for the most delicate of sauces, or long heating. I didn't see the need for a grill (too messy for indoors), not did I opt for a griddle section (I have a 2-burner cast iron griddle to lay over the burners), and I've never regretted my choice. Works flawlessly. Worth every cent.

I have a 48" Viking dual fuel range and I just love it. It is the center piece in a very attractive kitchen. I have the 48" Kitchen Aid built-in refridgerator (selected because it had a lower decible level than the SubZero) topped off with the Miele coffee system, dream kitchen. Thanks for the great comments.
