So it’s been just over a month since I’ve updated our house remodel project. And I’m pumping this one out late tonight. We have been SO beautifully swamped with work on this house. I am not complaining in the slightest because having tons of work to do and decisions to be made means that things are moving—and fast! We had to put the entire project on hold for almost an extra month because of the loan process. We finally closed a few weeks ago and have been hitting the ground running ever since. Our contractor has told us he is confident he can be finished with everything by next week which would put our move-in date next weekend. Here’s to hoping that’s true and it all goes down soon! We are packed and ready to go, that’s for sure!
So here’s a little before and progress update on the master bedroom and bath:
So far we have:
- -knocked out walls to create a larger bathroom
- -built up studs for the new walls
- -run electric
- -run plumbing
- -installed recessed lighting
- -purchased double vanity
- -purchased shower hardware
- -purchased tile
We got rid of that mini hallway (on the left of the photo up there) that connected our room to the main hallway. It was sort of a complete waste of space and now it is going to be part of the stand up shower in our bathroom. Here is the beginnings of the new shower!
Before all the work got started on this bathroom, it only had a toilet and single vanity. No shower. Here is a comparison shot of the space now that it’s opened up:
To give you a better idea, the toilet is going to be in the same spot as it is in the BEFORE picture (above, on the left). In the IN PROGRESS photo (above, on the right) the toilet will be in the space in the bottom right hand corner. The space in the above IN PROGRESS photo where you see that white pipe is where the double vanity is going to be. We enclosed the air-intake that was exposed in the “BEFORE” shot at the beginning of this post which is where the master closet used to be. Above it will be a lot of shelving for extra storage and you won’t have to see that thing anymore! The photo below this shows where the space for the new double vanity came from…
We enclosed that little nook that was in the dining room area and used it to add more space to our master bath as well. The dining area is so large that taking away this small amount of (sort of useless) space didn’t make the room seem smaller at all. Yay! I’m envisioning a lovely gallery wall there…
And here is the start of our master closet. It’s going to be a bit on the smaller side, but again, this isn’t our forever home and it beats what was there before! I’m going to be perusing through Ikea to get the best storage ideas for small spaces. Here is what is on the other side of this wall in the dining room:
And here’s an updated list of projects completed since the last post on this room which you can read here.
