That's what we have--it's heated, insulated, got shelves built into it, a broom closet, hooks on the wall for jackets, shelf for boots and shoes, stairway down to the basement, dog crate, and MUD, especially this time of year. Voila, mudroom.

Here in Michigan I think they are usually called a breezeway, but that is usually a glassed-in connection to the garage. Whatever the people before us called it, my dogs have turned it into our mudroom!

onyx'girl My breezeway is between the house and garage, unheated, concrete floor(tiled) and we winterized it, put in a heat duct and I now call it my birdroom. My Senegal and African Grey are in it with a dog crate and a bunch of plants.
Mud gets tracked in....

Juliem24 When I lived in Indiana, I heard the breezeway referred to as "the dog trot".

PoukieBear It's not so much the mud that I don't like, it's the FUR shedding!!

Thankfully, our dog doesn't mind being vacuumed. LOL.

Hmmm, I think I prefer the snow and below zero stuff to that... How do you deal with the mud and dogs all that time??

I, too, look forward to the hummingbirds. But where we used to live, on a flood plain, the chorus frogs were the earliest sign of spring we had. I drove out there yesterday just to hear them. They're great!

You know it's for real...

Spring, that is! And you know it's really here with the first muddy dog you hose down! I hooked it up and hosed down Sir Orick, who had turned into the MUD DOG! He wasn't happy about it, but I was ecstatic. Dogs are now in the mud room, Orick trying to lick himself dry, Jade howling because she doesn't think SHE should have to be there, after all...

Oops--I misspoke myself. They are in the BREEZEWAY. We moved here last October (from out in the country), and we are surrounded by (nice) neighbors older than me. Mary, neighbor on the left, corrected me when I mentioned the mud room one day. "Sweetie," she said. "We call that the breezeway." I stand corrected. She is also the lady who asked me a few weeks ago, "Sweetie, don't you like small dogs at all?" as she picked up her ****zu-poo, whatever, while Jade was trying to figure out how she could snatch the little dustmop through the fence...

Jade, stop howling in the BREEZEWAY!
