Laundry Room & Office revamp

What started out as an un-repairable leaking washing machine turned into an
entire revamp of our laundry room/office. I started by removing everything
in the room including the damaged flooring. I installed new laminate
flooring, painted all walls and doors, installed new floor and ceiling trim,
new washtub, washer & dryer, and cabinets w/ countertop for the office
area. Using my Ryobi tools I was able to complete this entire remodel
project with ease. The tools that I used include my drill for installing the
cabinets, my planer & sander for trimming the doors, my reciprocating saw
and 18V flashlight for installing the drain and water pipes in the new
washtub. My skill saw to cut the countertop to size, my 2" brad nailer for
the ceiling and base trim. This was an enjoyable, though necessary project and I
couldn't be happier with the final results. Besides having a brand new
laundry area, the other side of the room now boasts a home office.

  • Hi balkoths, Thanks for the comment on the laundry/office area. We really enjoy it and all of the thermometers are back on the walls. We enjoy those too! Always on the lookout for more. :) Ollie

  • Nice work! I like the corner mount faucet idea. Reminds me of how adding under-cabinet lighting over a 7 ft. kitchen counter turned into an $800 project. (New sub panel in the pantry).You and I must have the same fashion stylist.:Pencil behind the ear and tiny rip in the armpit.
