    Athomenow, i feel your pain. I figured out that when my DH "won't" (can't) do something, i call a contractor, make the appointment, tell my DH to be there for the appt. and get it DONE! My guy can do a lot of things around the house but after looking at full kitchen remodel that stalled halfway through it, he finally admitted that it was the plumbing that he was not equiped to DIY! I suspected it and frankly would not want to DIY plumbing either! So.....i called a local company, got the bid, handed it my DH and got it done! Two weeks later the new plumbing was installed ( complete whole house plumbing replaced), the counter tops and new sink installed and flooring installed. Good grief! Waited 5 YEARS to finish this project. Just talk to me!

    I did the same with getting the oozy basement waterproofed. It was completed earlier this month and DH is busy
    wiring extra outlets for his new man cave corner and my new laundry area. His life is made easier by just getting some projects professionally done tho he won't admit it.

    I am mentally planning my 2015 project! LOL ! Gotta get this years' completed first.

    good for you. we contract out plumber, electrician, carpenter and it takes enough time as it is. We keep the painting and the cleaning and that's enough for me. If we want to get it done before it's time to go to a retirement home may as well get it over with loll

    Mines pretty big...it takes up almost 1/3 of the basement... I have my washer and dryer.. Magnetic metal clothes hanger-rack-thingy that attaches to the dryer and is like an extra arm to hold items to hang- pretty awesome.. cabinets above both to hold opened laundry detergents and softeners, color catchers and all that other stuff we need. mud sink for the extreme grubbies under the window, and a Propane Stove .. Yes a full working stove for canning and when the power goes out, we get really bad ice storms- once there was no power for 14 days.. across from all that is a counter top with a wall of cabinets ( for my canning stuff) , vintage metal/porcelain table for folding and right next to that is a wall clothing bar..take two steps and you are in front of the cold storage cellar/tornado shelter encased in concrete... few steps past that is the water softener , upright freezers; one for his 'hunting' game and one for me just for 'stuff' like ice cream and other yummy stuff ! across from that is the floor to ceiling shelving unit that hold excess laundry supplies, extra coffee maker, crock pots and what nots not being used, and next to that is drawers and cabinets to hold 'his' hunting gear and out of season wears... walk past that and its the heating/water unit.. few more steps is the hallway that is lined on both side of two 3 compartment laundry sorters, a few more steps and there is another floor to ceiling metal shelving unit to hold extra canning jars and 'his' stuff.. another few steps youre out the laundry room door to the secondary kitchen/bar area... and thats whole 'nother section.. i do spend lots of time in my laundry room.. We have an orchard and a garden.. Need i say more?!?!?

    Just enough counter top for folding at the machines is a great addition. Looks like you have pretty much covered your bases here though
