I am currently obsessed with adding a bathroom to our basement.  I swear, it never ends with me.  One thing just leads to another.  We currently have a laundry space that is about 6ft by 5 ft.  The space is pretty much empty except for the washer/dryer and a utility sink.  Our washer and dryer are both on their last legs.  We've had the washing machine repaired in the past (but it still acts funny sometimes) and the dryer door will only stay closed if I prop a heavy box against it.  But they work, so I've put up with all their problems.

So here is my plan.  I want to purchase a new stackable washer/dryer unit and place a nice utility sink set in a cabinet next to the washer and dryer.   Then I want to install an up-flush toilet on the opposite wall.  I already have the whole thing planned out in my head.  I am going to have blue floor tiles, white bead board on the half the wall and a lighter shade of blue on the top of the wall.

There is only one problem with my fabulous plan - money.

It seems like we have been spending money like crazy lately.  The impromptu trip to KY was definitely expensive.  Our van needed some maintain before we drove back to KY, which cost a pretty penny.  I just made the final payment on my last round of dental work.  And the list goes on and on.  It just seems like we are barely making ends meet right now.

Originally I was pushing for the bathroom project to begin this month, but we are going to have to hold off until the fall.  I am disappointed, but I don't really see any way around it.

Love the bathroom idea! House projects cost so much money and we are waiting to do some of ours too. Hate waiting, but it'll be worth it!
