As mentioned in my post last week, my husband and I have started from scratch with each area of our house. Just to give you an idea of what things looked like before with the Master Bath, here are some photos from last year:
This was a small bathroom to begin with and we wanted to maximize our space as much as possible. The prefabricated shower that was there previously was so small, my husband could barely move in it. Also, the swinging door took up a decent amount of potential space.
Since our guest bathroom has a bathtub for our son, we wanted a large walk-in shower for our bathroom. Of course, given the size constraints, we couldn’t go TOO large, but we did what we could.
As you can see, we are still very much under construction with this bathroom.
The niche in the wall is for a custom-sized medicine cabinet/mirror that is nice and large. Beneath that will be a custom-sized vanity with both drawer and under-sink storage. The tall unfinished cabinet was also custom made. The toilet will go to the right of that. To create extra space for the larger shower, we moved the entry door to the left slightly and utilized a pocket door, rather than a swinging door. For the flooring, we choose natural stone in a coblestone pattern. Still need grout…
And now for the shower:
Yes, that is the shower. Yes, that is light from our back yard coming in through it. It is still a work in progress. We plan to at least put the vanity and toilet in there soon so that it is a functioning bathroom. However, I told my husband that I refuse to use it unless the back of the house is sealed up. We don’t want any squirrels coming in to join the party!

Watch for an update on this in the future!
Until next week…
