Could the laundry area possibly be placed behind bifold doors or a curtain?
If you need to close it in, maybe a drop ceiling with the tiles would work for you. You will need help with this project because the track is quite lengthy and needs to be balanced and even when starting. It is relatively easy to do providing you have an extra pair of hands. If you need access to any plumbing, etc, this is the way to go.
