Phase I: Main floor Bath.a.

Main floor Bathroom:
Access from a doorway off the Dining Room into a small hallway (also leading to the Bedroom annihilated by our Kitchen renovation), and a teeny tiny pocket-door.

The Bathroom, Bedroom, and Library were additions to the original home in the '40's, and the doorway off the Dining Room would have been an exterior door.

Previous owners had done a lo-end update including vinyl floor tiles (industrial grade), new pedestal sink and lo-flo toilet, as well as tub & surround. We will be salvaging the sink, tub & surround to relieve our budget, and replacing the toilet with a dual flush.

Functioning window (awning opens at top) inside the shower is kinda cool. The lower portion is frosted for privacy. Before use we stripped the old & applied new caulk creating a fresh seal to prevent any leaks into the wall.

The pocket-door wall was removed along with the hallway carpet.

Doorway off the Dining Room has been filled-in and creating a new door accessible from the new Kitchen. Walls & ceiling primed/painted flat white.

It is amazing how large this Bathroom feels now! We did not expect the difference to be so vast, and expected a small bathroom still, but the space feels open and spacious!
