It's been a week now since my husband and I began the large task of building a mudroom in our garage. I'm actually surprised at how quickly the room is coming together.
I took tons of pictures of the progress and can't wait to show you all what the mudroom looks like today!
This is the door from our garage. The door we use coming and going. It leads you directly into our kitchen/family room combo. It drives me CRAZY because there is nowhere to put coats, shoes, and backpacks. The plan is to build a small mudroom beyond this door in our garage to serve as storage for all that STUFF!
Okay I know this looks really really bad...but this is our garage. That is the door that leads into our house and where our new mudroom will go.
The first thing we did was begin building a platform for the mudroom.
What you don't see here is that we put a vapor barrier and insulation under the subfloor.
Then we started framing out our walls.
We had to carry that heavy wall through our messy garage.
Yes, that's me all bundled up looking chic as ever! It was freezing cold that day
We added heavy insulation to make sure the room will stay warm. This is the view from inside the house.
Saturday my husband had a friend come over and help hang drywall and move the interior door.
My husband added this arch to match the rest of the doorways in our house.
Our new entrance.

Our new entry from garage to mudroom.
It's hard to believe we accomplished all that in one week!
we my husband will be focusing on mudding and sanding the interior drywall to make the walls look flawless. Fingers crossed that in another week I can primer and paint the walls.
