Laundry Room Revamp

DG Laundry 1


Over 50 years of half done and very poorly done work has left this previous rural washhouse a mess.

It was decided that a  complete got of the place including new insulation, wiring and drywall was going to be necessary to do the job right.

And easy access shower was added with some fun Mosaic tile and a thick glass shower divider. A seat tucked behind the half wall and a hand held shower make this an ideal spot to wash the homeowner’s two large dogs.

Epoxy grout was used to make cleanup easier and a bright clean laundry space was created with the use of white cabinets and an additional window.

Only the toilet paper holder was reused. Painted white, it was remounted in the same spot.

About Bert

Bert Gilbert has been a resident of the Bloomington area since 1979, arriving as a student at Indiana University. Since 1987 he and his wife, Amy Dyken, have lived lived in Eastern Greene county in an 1860’s farmhouse which they have lovingly restored from the ground up. Growing up in a 1907 craftsman style home in northern Indiana, Bert learned about home upkeep and repair early on from his father and mother who themselves renovated that home. By the age of 12, Bert had a business in the neighborhood cutting lawns and doing odd jobs. After wandering through several majors including pre-dentistry and Russian history, he ended up graduating from IU with a associate’s in Business Administration and an bachelor's in Sculpture and Painting. A couple of years of soul searching and working as everything from a black tie waiter to a cabinetmaker returned Bert to his childhood love; creating spaces and fixing up houses. Bert and Amy become empty nesters in 2010 sending their only child, Keilor, off to Yale where he is currently studying mathematics. The new found time has allowed Bert to explore his current passion; cast iron and large welded steel sculpture. He also enjoys gardening, traveling, music, poetry, and creating endless projects around the house and grounds.
