the hypothetical laundry room

In addition to cleaning out the back bedroom, the other project we need to get done before the HVAC guys start their install is the laundry room.

Our laundry room is actually the back entrance to the house, the one we use (we never use the front door). As you can see, it's in pretty bad shape. We took out the washer and dryer that were there when we moved in -- the dryer's broken, so it's bound for the dumpster, and we sold the washer on Craigslist for 45 bucks. Now we need to rip out the dry-rotted floor, take down the paneling and the drop ceiling, go down into the crawlspace below and fix the plumbing (that's the pipe that froze this past winter -- it goes to the laundry room, the downstairs bathroom, and the outside hose faucet), and then put in a sealed subfloor of some sort and any new plumbing.

Eventually we'll put in a new washer and dryer, but we definitely have to get it prepped and ready for the HVAC guys. We were hoping to work on this this weekend, but we're unsure of scheduling and things right now, unfortunately. We'll see!
