Opened up the utility closet. Benefits are room for the dish washer closer to the sink, will be able to add a folding table over top after I buy new front load machines, more room in the kitchen after the right wall was removed. Better storage once I get a better set of cabinets added. The open style ones were removed as part of the project. I will re-purpose those in the garage and perhaps Nick's new kitchen when I convert the garage to an apartment.
