The House: The Laundry Room, Phase One

Now that we have three cats, we needed a dedicated space for them. We could turn the laundry room into such a space with the installation of a door.

We weren't a huge fan of the arch.

The Goals:

That closet is coming down!
  • Remove the arch and replace it with a door.
  • Repaint.
  • Remove door into the hall bathroom and replace it with drywall.
  • Remove small closet.

The Timeline:

I'm modeling the fact that the closet is coming down!
Also, I just realized how hyper-mobile my hands are.

We started this room in December.
I was able to move the kitties down on January 5th, 2017.

With the move of the kitties, the Laundry Room, Phase One is considered complete.

The Work in Progress:

Arch has been removed!

Oh look, a door. It fits.

Originally, this was going to be a half wall. Then we realized that black pipe could not be moved. We adjusted our plans.

Removing the cabinets.

We needed to move the furnace intake vent to the hallway due to the installation of the door.

Texturing walls is messy.

New color left. Old color right.

My husband did such a good job with the drywall and texture. Though I did pick the paint color.

Mig, slightly freaked out in my car.
Poor kitty does not appreciate moving. Hopefully, this shall be his last move for a long time.

The Results:

Kitties have their own room.

We have more plans for this room. But Phase Two shall be completed at a later time. The important part is the kitties are now at the house. The puppy is extremely ecstatic that her entire pack has been reunited.
