Default Utility Tub

We are planning on building a new Designer home in TV in the near future. We are planning on modifying a Woodside model and have spent a lot of time tweaking the base model.

Do you find that you use your utility tub in the laundry room? Just wondering if we really need one or not.

Thanks for your feedback.

That would be high on a priority list. Storage cabinet underneath is handy also. Not only utilitarian but a
resale plus.

We find the utility tub in the garage very handy. We use it everyday. Many of our neighbors have the tub in the garage as well.

You may be disappointed in what you can change. Make sure you communicate with your REP

I like the tub in the garage idea. Guessing that’s not too many times we have to worry about freezing in the garage that would affect the plumbing.

We removed from the laundry room because storage is premium, we added a cabinet, in our model home. Husband doesn't do much yard work or painting, and a hose will fit the bill. Future owner could restore utility sink if they like, we do not miss it.

If you wash your own floors you need to fill a bucket, rinse the mop, etc. I would say I'm at our laundry room tub 6 or more times a day doing something in there. As far as having it in the garage, mine is full and I wouldn't want it out there and it's just too hot out there but that's just me.

This is my first home with a utility sink and I absolutely LOVE it. I don't know how I ever lived without one. Well, actually I do. I used my kitchen sink for everything I use my utility sink for. But.....there are things I use my utility sink for that I would not dream of using my kitchen sink for. Those things would be hosed down by a garden hose.

Long story short.....the utility sink in our air conditioned laundry room is a huge plus for me. I, personally, would not want to live without one now that I've had the experience of having one.

I use mine frequently. I have an Iris and the tub is in my garage.
