Change of plans

June 3, 2013

We used Mike Holmes’ book to make some old-fashion cut-outs with graph paper. We cut out all the standard sized showers, toilets, vanities and shuffled them around on a map of the room until we realized that we could have a double vanity, a 48”x48” shower and some shelving. Who knows what we would store there? This is what the layout would look like.

Shortening the shower was a hard pill for me to swallow (who doesn’t want an 85” long shower). We would put a half-wall between the toilet and the shower to allow for more natural light in the shower and for the illusion of openness.

Now that we’ve changed the plan, there are a million new questions.

If we forgo the bead board, we can put an over-sized print above the toilet. How creepy would it be to have this little guy looking up at you! We could become those kind of pet owners.
