Bathroom Renovations

It's been a crazy few weeks with the holiday season descending upon us, our regular crazy schedules and in the middle of it all, the renovation of our master bathroom.

Yes, bathroom renovation. I know you are asking yourself why do this now? Shouldn't we just wait until the new year? Well I tried to get this project off the ground last February and obstacle after obstacle kept me from getting it going. Finally a plan was put in place that fit a reasonable budget and our contractor had time in his schedule so I said let's do it!

The basic plan is to take out the wall between the bathroom and the little area outside and make it all a bigger bathroom. All the fixtures will be replaced but remain in the same spot, and new tile will be put in. Right now we are in the middle of the demo process.

This first shot shows the wall that needs to be removed.

This is the area that is just a waste of space and will now be part of the bathroom.

Just a peak inside the old bathroom with the "lovely" yellow fixtures.

Once again the wall that will be removed.

This is the best shot I could get of the shower and tub. The wall and door will come out so this will be more open. This tub is only 15 inches high. This means a miserable bath, which I don't even bother with anymore because you really can't get submerged. The new tub is 20 inches deep, I can't wait!

This is the status as of today. The wall, fixtures and flooring have come out. It's already much more open and spacious.

More to come ASAP! Now to catch up with other things that have been going on.
