Remodel--Days 1 & 2

We're remodeling!!! Nothing major, though. We're adding a room into the garage to become our laundry room. Our current laundry room will become a 5th bedroom! We're so excited!

Day 1:
Notice the direction the attic ladder comes down. That will be reversed so that the attic will open into our laundry room. Just behind the ladder you can see our entry door from the garage. That will be removed. Do you see that lovely dark green door? That will be removed, repainted, and will be moved to a new spot. It will become our entry door from the garage.

You can see below where our wall will be built.

Day 2:
You can see in this first picture where the other wall will be built. You can also see the current hot water heater closet. That closet will be opened up to the rest of the room. We will install a tankless hot water system and the washer and dryer will be in that area.

In this next picture you can see where the dark green door was removed. This spot is now ready for a wall to be built there. You can't tell in the pictures, but we're also getting ready to build a new floor, which will be at the same level as the rest of our house.

Here's an outside view of where the door used to be. It's just waiting on me to buy some paint and paint it! I know it's not beautiful, but NOBODY sees this side of our house, except our neighbor, sometimes, and the meter readers, and our kids' friends. Oh, forget it! FEW people see this side of our house.

Oh, do you know the reason we're jumping into this project? Actually, there are 2 very adorable reasons.

These 2 cuties are our newest family members. They moved in with us 2 weeks ago. We don't know how long they'll be with us, but we're excited to get to love on them. He is 2 1/2 and she is 9 months.

Yes, we now have an even half-dozen!

Looks great. Share more as it goes. I didn't think you were doing the water heater. Good for you. Now you can do my laundry too.
