Updated Summer 2019


We created a mudroom out of part of the original dining room. By adding a wall, tiling the floor, and building custom cubbies and benches, this space has turned into a functional storage space for our family that sees its fair share of mud, thanks to our fur baby Dexter!

This room is a catch-all for our shoes, coats, Dexter’s toys and leashes etc. At this point, I can’t imagine not having a mudroom- we’ve come to depend on the extra storage so much. With our exterior remodel, we removed the original door and replaced it with one with a large window with blinds, and it helps to add so much light in the dining room area during the day. *more photos coming soon!*


Benches and cubbies were handmade by Josh, and stained with Ranch Oak by Sherwin Williams. White paint is generic.
