Laundry Room Picture

It's hard to take a picture of a small room - all of the angles get distorted. Anyway, here's our laundry room so far. Just waiting for that washer and dryer to magically appear. I guess we'll have to buy them first though.

Notice the little 5 gallon hot water heater in the lower left corner. We'll have instant hot water upstairs because Doug hates waiting for the hot water to arrive when he's about to take a shower. I told him that's just how it is when you have a two story house, but he thought this would be better. Hey, it'll heat the laundry water faster too!

And don't forget, we have this thing down in the basement that uses the warm outgoing waste water to preheat the incoming cold water. Wait, does that mean all of our cold water is going to be lukewarm? Will I like that? Will I have to waste energy making ice to cool off the lukewarm cold water? I don't like ice cubes in my water. Well compromise is what it's all about. And I'm good at that.

Anyway, I think Doug did a beautiful job installing the cabinets, countertop and sink, all from Ikea. And the walls are a very pleasant color for peaceful laundry activities. The color is called "Sanctuary."
