We have 1989 home that has a pretty small laundry room. Next to the laundry room is an extra bedroom. The washer and dryer are set against the wall that the laundry shares with the bedroom, and all plumbing/electrical is in the shared wall.
The laundry room and extra bedroom are located right off the garage door, which is the door that we use 99% of the time. We would like to convert this extra bedroom to a mud/laundry room, and use the current laundry room as a "pocket office". I realize this may sound hokey to some, but we have three young children and live in the cold, snowy, upper Midwest. This would improve the function of our home tremendously.
So my question is, how difficult or involved is it to pull the laundry hookups and plumbing out the other side of the wall? The W/D would sit just on the other side of the wall from where it is now. The washer currently drains into a plastic tub, but we would be open to losing the tub, and have the drain in the wall, as we had in a previous home. The basement below is not finished.
Thank you so much for any insight or advice you can provide!
