Multipurpose Mudroom 

Parents: Shawn and Randy Sweeney

Kids: Luke, 11, and Jacob, 13

Builder Shawn Sweeney understands the importance of having a mudroom. He lives on a dirt road in Shelburne with two active sons and a wife who's an avid gardener.

"The mudroom gets hit hard every day, no matter what season it is," he says.

He designed the space — between inside and out — that prevents all manner of dirt, mud, slush and snow from being tracked into the actual house. Form blends with function in this attractive room that features a vintage stained-glass window — a gift from the in-laws — a multicolored slate-tile floor and a reclaimed enameled laundry sink.

Best of all: It looks good even when it's muddy.
