The current space is a laundry room off the kitchen with an entrance from the garage. The house was built in 1999. The space needs to be reconfigured to accommodate the growing needs of this family of four. Current design includes a coat closet with sliding doors which stores shoes, coats, vacuum cleaner, gloves, scarves, etc. the laundry room has a washer and dryer, clothes hampers and storage.
