Well now we are finally getting to what we started on. The bathroom.
The master bathroom was small and had much issues in the plumbing (as does the whole house) and we decided it would work better as the main bath in the hallway. Eventually we will use the larger bathroom for the master, but for now we will just do without. One project at a time and I tell you after this, I am talking Charlie into taking a year's break and our going on a vacation just the three of us. That is if we can afford it after paying on the cost of these home improvements.
The bathroom is turning out lovely and I can picture it in my head already. Because we tore it down to the studs and we had to replace the doorway from our bedroom we are going to paint our bedroom. Which gives me good reason to purchase new window treatments. Finally!
I have many in progress pictures but here are the before and afters thus far...
This was when we first moved in. Just a single shower where later after a short while the wall next to the shower door had buckled up from water damage and we found the sellers had painted over the existing issue so we couldn't tell. The fan ceiling you see in the top blew the air right into the insulation above and there was a lot of moisture build up and causing mold.
Just after tearing out...we were able to use a small closet where you see that door opening to gain a bit more room to put a tub in.
Yikes, no floor! Was easy access to get to the electrical below, but scary! Reminded me of the movie Home Alone!
Charlie's rough fit the new door and the tub and some of the hardware for the shower. Better to be safe and make sure it will all be in the right place as planned. Since this picture he has framed and put up the wall that you see missing in this photo. He has also dry-walled the outside of the room so that in the hallway it looks somewhat normal again. He has been doing a great job. Today we plan to put the rest of the insulation in and get the tub put in permanently.
Getting there!! Can't wait!
