Layout of the house is you come in to the landing from the deck. You either step up to the dining room/ kitchen or go down to he basement.
Thought about putting two cupboards in the dining room with a couple of shoe pans filled with rocks but afraid I won't have much of a dining room left and we spend a great deal of time in that area because of eating and getting ready for school and the dreadful homework. Lol
Then I thought about putting the "mud room" in the hall closet . Take the doors off and put some kind of tray down with rocks to catch all the dripping water. But the only issue with that is I have to move my office out of that closet to somewhere else. So then thought move my home office into the dining room area and everything else from the mudroom closet in the closet I just removed the home office. But I need some ideas for a home office in my space. Sorry if confusing! I will post pics.
