This area was a wet bar from the mid-'70's. Then we used it for the laundry room, and it also had the hot water heater. I have a new laundry room now, with hot water heater, mop sink, and small refrigerator to store the extra chicken eggs, frozen food, jugs of water just in case, etc.
The mess of items is in the future office--we were working on the rest of the basement too, at this point.
Once the sheet rock was installed we started on the floor. There was this lovely brown vinyl tile glued to the concrete floor. We decided to just leave it. Then we installed laminate flooring with a foam layment beneath it. That door leads to the furnace room.
This shows the painted walls--bright white! It was originally Eddie's office, but now it's mine and I haven't bothered to change the color. But there are a lot of pictures on the walls, and a couple shelves.
