As I mentioned last week, the bath renovation is happening! I wrote about why in this post and today to project kicked off to get it done before another winter goes by. As a reminder, here’s what our space looked like now.
Planning this has been a challenge and I’m sure we’ll continue to learn lots more over the next few weeks. I think the part I found most amazing is the lack of responsiveness in trying to hire a contractor. It was a frustrating process and then getting numbers, having questions, no answers… ugh. I’ll share more with you on the contractor we finally did hired later (especially after we start to see some of their work!), but we’re feeling confident we made the right decision.
Of course I’ve been looking at bathroom pictures for months and months and completing some drawings to have on hand. To give you an idea of how much this is going to improve the one full bath this house is capable of having here’s our current and the revised layout:
That’s a double vanity, people! And I think the little toilet alcove is my hubby’s favorite part. By flipping the tub around, we can add the double vanity where the small pantry/roof is currently. This whole renovation also gets our ceiling height up to 8+ feet, so although I’m still very short, it won’t feel like a bathroom for little people anymore!
Since this is our only bathroom and it needs to be done quick, we’re not doing anything ourselves and the whole project should be done inside of 4 weeks, provided the inspections are timely and the weather holds up ok. We already have a small delay due to the weather this week, but fingers crossed it’s the only one.
For today, though, it looks like this.
Any progress is good progress. 🙂
