The laundry room is a mess. I believe the small room was originally the servants quarters because it is next to the kitchen, used to have a "toilet closet", and has a back door so that the servants can enter the house unseen by the owner. This is a feature my parents used to have in the exact configuration - a room connected to the kitchen with a back entrance. They turned it into a kitchenette that opens to a back deck.
I needed a place for the laundry so I'm putting a stackable front load washer and dryer where the toilet closet used to be.
Adding a laundry requires a LOT of plumbing and duct work.
I'm happy to have all that done. Boy there's a lot of tubes in there! I'll follow up when the washer and dryer are installed.
