Renovation project - How to build a utility room
We have done another big shop and hopefully have all the supplies we need to finish; we have the wooden batons to make the utility room, which goes up in no time, we had already bought the door.
The studding goes up (wooden frame), we had worried if this would take too much from the room, but it is surprising how big this room actually is.
The utility will be such a bonus as this will hide the electric meters, the hot water tank and the washing machine, there will also be enough room for a dryer.When measuring the dimensions, be sure to allow enough room to work on all the equipment in the room, for example if you need to get too the hot water tank or fix the washer, or require workable access to the consumer unit
That night as I do my washing, I close the door behind me, why I do this I have no idea as there aren’t actually any walls there yet!
The plaster board goes up and the joints are filled and sanded. As the walls have not been fully skimmed with plaster, just the joints, John was not able to use the metal bead for the corners, instead he has added a wooden corner trim. (which seems to be the norm in France)This room is finished in no time, it just needs a coat of paint
