The Curbly House: Our Dream Mudroom and Laundry Room is Finished!

By: Alicia Feb 12, 2014

Curbly House Mudroom & Laundry Room

When we began planning our new addition, we decided to add a laundry and mud room off the kitchen to create an entry point with storage and give ourselves the luxury of first-floor laundry. This room has absolutely been the best decision we made during our entire house project. It's simple and straight-forward, but it has brought a tremendous amount of organization and simplicity to our daily home routines.  … Continue Reading

Sheesh. Apologies to Mr. Shakespeare. Anyway, as you might know, our family is in the middle of a very exciting house addition (you can follow along in the Curbly House section of this site). A big part of keeping a large-scale project like this moving forward is the ability to make decisions (hopefully good ones) quickly without second-guessing yourself.
