Can't wait!!!! I am so tickled about the design that was created for my laundry room. because it will include the cabinetry, folding table, ironing board, handing rods etc to wash my clothes in a central location because I am all over the place without it. Lastly, placing the laundry room in the basement freed up the proposed laundry room upstairs for different usage....ding ding ding!! That's right, more space the better. I know some folks swear by it upstairs which is convenient, but I knew it would not work for me because I need a laundry work space with space.
I later learned that for those who choose to keep the laundry upstairs for convenience need to include extra joists to stabilize the floor because when you are washing clothes it causes the entire floor to shake and you can hear it through your entire house. Also, if you have little people you may have to monitor when you wash the clothes due to the noise. I have also heard that the machines are much quieter...so do your research on the machines and if you can be sure to ask for extra joists to stabilize your machines so that you can enjoy your choice of an second level laundry room.
