The crew came in today and tore out the bathroom down to the studs, so here’s a picture of what it looks like at the window, with everything gone. You can see where the pipes are, and the wiring. It’s going to be fun to watch over the next few days, I’ll try to keep pictures up to date.
We’re changing the bathtub orientation so that it runs along the wall with the window, and the window itself will be filled in with glass block, so that it will be in the same plane as the shower tiles, forming one seamless wall. That single change of layout will open up the floor considerably, and make the bathroom feel much more open than before. We’re looking forward to it. The only possible ‘gotcha’ could be that we won’t be able to fit a standard sized tub in that space, so if that’s the case, we’ll be going for a walk in shower instead, with no tub at all. Either way, it’s going to be nice, I think.
Tomorrow, the sink and vanity get delivered!
