It is going to get entertaining try to cover all the out lets and items in the wall and still have it look appealing. But, I have confidence we are up to the job.
The one thing I wasn’t able to achieve, was not having a step up into the bath room.
They look a lot better that we have placed them on I Beams and put them in position to bolt together
The openness of the design make it seem a lot more like a place I would want to live
The openness of the design as viewed from a different angle allows a better perception and make it seem a lot larger
We add a massive amount of insulation and we are using a state of the art A/C Heat pump with the capacity for a unit with twice the floor space of this one.
Once we had the cabinets in position, we couldn’t resist hooking up the sewer and the water. Now washing things and finishing the bath / laundry room will be a lot easierBecause we planned our project so it could be moved with the season we decided to go with lamented flooring to the reduce weight.
I think I am glad that the floor turned out a little darker than our cabinets This actually happened because the store only had the square footage we needed in a color near what we wanted in this color in stock. I now believe it was for the best!
Drilling the 30 holes to bolt the units together was an all-day task. As it is a must to keep them totally straight and space properly.
As you might guess the first part of the bath room to be installed was the toilet
Having the cabinets set in place allowed us to see that more cabinet space was a must, so it is back to the stores again. By now Lowes and home depo know us buy our first name.
One more oversize cabinet made a huge difference
Running water inside makes it a lot easier to work with the taping and finishing the drywall
Now to check all the pluming and drains that we place in the walls and laundry room floor. The water lines had been tested. But this was the first time we could test all the drains at once
And for effect we added an electric stove, however I think we’ll replace it with a black model at some point
For the finishing touch on the bath / laundry room we felt that a darker color vanity was in order
With the laundry room / bath room near finish, I wish we had of had more room for a bigger shower
Nothing ever happens without paper towels and pipe wrenches, they always seen to work their way in
There is something about this corner that doesn’t look right. It may require more though!
