When we bought this house (our first) my wife was into breeding cats, so they got the heated and insulated garage and an outdoor run. The laundry room 'wet side' was on the other side of the wall in our bedroom closet, so now the washer and dryer are in what used to be our bedroom closet, and I have the whole laundry room for a darkroom.

I'll have the garage converted into a darkroom within the year
