Laundry Room Progress

I have shared with you my plans to FINALLY finish the Laundry Room here and here. Today, I met with the plumber. I am planning to move all the utilities around to maximize usable space and I have no idea what code allows for. I didn't want to spend a lot of time trying to lay out cabinets in SketchUp if the solution wasn't practical. Good news. The plumber said everything was certainly doable and appropriate! Also note. I called two plumbers for estimates. Plumber One came today, on time, with suggestions and is doing a free water test. Plumber Two wants $67.50 to arrive and more $$$$ for time to do an assessment of the situation before providing a quote.  Hmmmm.

I also visited Lowe's and collected some information on stackable washers and dryers because that is part of the plan as well. I am looking for information about them. Is it inconvenient? Problematic?  It seems like a perfect solution yet so seldom is it done.  Does anyone have any knowledge on the subject?

I did learn that if my dryer dies (it sounds like a wild screeching bird right now) before the project commences, I can replace it with the matching half now. I am having a baby shower here on May 6th so I can't begin the project until after then. There is no way it would be done and I expect my family room is going to be lined with containers with all the items on those shelves for a few weeks to be sure. Time to purge!

Don't you just love a building project?
