geunderwood - If that is your only option, You could create a interior cabinet wall divider in the cabinet to separate the broom storage from the pantry. Mandi @ Dura

My parents added a door to the outside in the attached garage when they built their house, knowing that we kids would not walk around the house and the garage to the back door, especially when the weather was bad. Inside that door, mom put a shoe/boot place and a wardrobe and rack for our coats, gloves etc. (the "good" coats went in the hall closet) Wet, muddy, and messy things stayed in the garage, not the house. If it was really cold, we just brought boots and coats in to warm up before we wore them. We have done this at our vacation home to help keep the sand out of the house. The cost of adding a regular exterior door is so worth it!.
