Yes it was madness but has now evolved into a much more functional space. One small accomplishment achieved this holiday break.
We fortunately have a small mudroom off the garage door entryway. It wasn’t initially there on the plans well it was but it was much smaller and had a storage closet. We removed the closet and took the second larger pantry out of our kitchen and flipped it into the laundry room. This created a nice sized entry way. However up until now it’s been an empty space. Well not so empty it usually is a dumping ground for backpacks, coats, boots, hats and mittens. Initially I would take all of those things after school/work and hang up in the front hall closet and then each night before I went to back take them all back out again and lay them neatly in the mudroom in each persons pile so that we would be ready in the morning. You can probably understand why I stopped this routine.
