Moving that wall in a few inches meant that the big cabinet in the laundry room would trap the washer and dryer in the room. You’d never be able to get them out if they needed out for any reason. We had to move the cabinet out of there and put something smaller in its place, a little antique buffet. So, the room shrank, but it grew.
Cutting all that sheetrock gets a little drywall dust on everything, but if you think that’s messy just wait until the hard part.
