How should I rearrange my utility room?
Right now my washer and dryer are in the utility room and every thing is gas. I want to purchase an electric dryer so as to not deal with the gas line needing to get moved just turned off. So when you come into house through garage you come in trough that space on right hand are utilized, and on left side washer and dryer. There is barely enough room to walk through and for shoes forget it. So I end up with a pile of shoes and then when I do my laundry it's so dreary. Now I asked my furnace guy if I could place louver doors he said yes but there is a pipe that I would have to have moved. So currently will be looking into that because I think I am better off money wise to move pipe and place doors. Then I won't see and be creeped out buy all the gas in that space. Then the move dryer to family room and have small closet for shoes. I plan on hiring someone I'm not doing it but then closing that area into a small place of its own room. I wish I had thought of that before we bought this place. I could have it moved into kitchen eat in place but would have to move pipes around which gets costly but a great option. Plus would have a window and more space. Then family room won't be touched and pipes are accessible in crawl space so maybe not that bad. Would have to have move electrical 220 volt as well. What do you all think. I'm terrible at this but I want to know what house you would buy because we will be moving soon when H retires. So I like doing improvements that increase value. We have only been here 11 months.
