Closets seem to be a recent addition to New England housing, and ours is no exception. We long desired to have one on the first floor, someplace to store the vacuum cleaner and brooms, for starters. Yes, the winter coats can hang in the mudroom (that was something this Midwestern native had to learn about, back when).

Mudroom? Definitely no space for a vacuum cleaner there.

And so we slid one in our pantry, when we got to that part of the bathroom project.


My poems on the challenges of renovations, repairs, and relating as a husband are collected as Home Maintenance, a free ebook at Thistle/Flinch editions.
