close up play room closet behind, utility room. open it like this to make laundry closet at the back door. Enclose the water heater. use space where w/d are now at right of door as a little built in seat for bags & coat hooks over it.
Bed couch with draws, shared room, space saver. this could go in bedroom area. like the shelves idea, too. can add a light wooden dining table and a few comfy folding chairs to make cool dining area in bedrm space, if bed moves to living room area.
