Is it strange that my favorite part of the house happens to be one of the smallest? This mudroom was created from what was formerly a cramped laundry closet as you enter the house from the garage.

It has brought so much functionality to our home as a drop zone for backpacks, snow gear, and shoes. They are no longer overflowing into the hallway to the garage, and there’s a place (or a hook) for everything.  Of course, it doesn’t look like this on a normal day. 

Since I was very pregnant and on bedrest when Mack completed this project, the photos are a bit scattered. I’m working on tracking them all down and compiling a tutorial on the built-in bench and wall treatment. I also may reconstruct it in CAD to give you a precise step-by-step rendering. At any rate, here is the original reveal, and stay tuned for tutorials!
