Laundry Room and half bath overhaul!
 
Well, I am officially done my project. This started the day after my final fishing trip in mid December. This involved gutting my laundry room and half bath, installing a gas pipe for a dryer, replacing an entire exterior wall because of termite damage, framing and installing a new wall to create a room for the heater/water heater, installing tile floors, insulating the room for the first time, new exterior window, all new interior doors, rerouting all plumbing and electrical, installing a drop ceiling, and replacing all laundry room electrical. Why did I do this? Because the previous owner liked to drink in his back porch. Therefore, his dryer was in the cold garage and fridge in the house. That and I am a perfectionist and cannot just move the dryer...Oh yeah, I also like Demo!!!

Notice I used a mosaic instead of marple for thresholds...

Thank you to everyone that offered advice! I did nearly all of the work. My friend Bill did most of the tile...my Father in Law did the trim...my Uncle and fishing partner helped do the drop ceiling.

good idea to put a hang rod above the washer/dryer. job well done for sure!

just curious why your floor perimeter is raised a bit (in toilet picture, right side, and also in washer/dryer pic near the door on the right). ?

This is a split level home. The rooms are ground level and I guess they needed a raised block perimeter. That was a SOB to level and tile!!!
