When Justin and I built our house over 2 years ago, we were quickly cutting certain things out of the house wish list due to budget! It's really easy to go over budget when building a house. The first things to go were finishing our basement, the irrigation system, and the custom wood closet shelving. All of these were things we didn't need, although I'm sure Justin could argue the irrigation system was definitely needed this summer! We've since finished our basement and added a huge island in our closet...but still no irrigation system! :)
Anyway, another small item that was cut off of our wish list was our garage entry locker/storage system. We still have the niche space that is currently occupied by a hall tree, a small table that holds our spare keys, and then about 3-4 pairs of my shoes on any given day (why bring them upstairs when I know I'm going to wear them again in the next day or two??)! Well, I've been given the OK to get this locker/storage system underway! In fact, and friend of mine from Pulte is coming over next week to talk about design and details! I'm pretty excited! I am hoping it will be similar to one of the pictures below!
