Mudroom and mudroom bathroom.


So, as I said last post, our power is on!! This is huge, and I cannot actually wrap my mind around the fact that we are now on the other side of this massive leap. We had to re-do all of the wiring in the house due to the 100 year old knob and tube wiring. This was not an easy, painless, or short process due to our plaster walls and the code requirement for all electrical wires to be run in hard conduit; a rather difficult combination. But, we did it, and we are on the other side, and we can now enjoy a very safely lit house with brand new wiring behind our 100 year old plaster walls.

Tonight we want to share a bit of the mudroom and the mudroom bathroom. The mudroom is the room we will walk into and out of everyday of every week of every month of every year. It needs to be cheerful and welcoming; ready to send us off into our days with an encouraging embrace, and greet us back at home with a warm hug.

Love and hugs,
