So last week I posted that I had removed the ceiling in our Laundry/Mechanical room to make way for a new hvac unit. In an effort to add some order to the room, we're going to plan on enclosing the furnace and sump pump to add some separation to the room's use. Currently we have a 40 gallon water heater, which somewhat sits in front of our washer's front loading door, then the dryer sits to the right of it. With the ceiling removed, we've gained some height to be able to stack those two machines. I've also got a new tankless water heater on order and should gain a few square feet to be able to give access to a new sink.
So I was at Lowes the other night and on their clearance rack was a stainless single bowl sink, marked down from $149, to $49. I went back to the kitchen area to look at what a comparable sink would be and cheapest new was $110 and wasn't made as well, so I snagged it up.
So my first stab at laying things out goes as follows, sink to the left, folding/hanging space in the center, and machines on the right. I might consider putting the machines in the center and folding/hanging to the right, but not had time to mock that up yet.
We've got concrete walls on the back and left side, so there is a half wall built out in front of each of them. I may finish out the one on the left up to ceiling height just to make it not seem weird having the upper cabinet off to one side like it is, at least next to the cabinet, but it is usable space none the less. I'm going to also try to fit the new tankless heater above that wall, but it will be a tight fit since I'll be adding a dropped ceiling down about 6" below the joists.
