Bathroom Remodel – Early stages

Our master bathroom remodel is getting underway. As remodels go it isn’t very extensive. We are getting new cabinets, countertops, and sinks. The shower and bathtub are fine so aren’t getting tossed. The cabinets were definitely showing their age. The new cabinets will be about 3″ higher.

Here are some pictures of “before”

With that huge mirror (which is staying) it’s hard to get a good straight on shot with a flash and without yours truly in it.
So…

Problem 1 solved; but dang who is that old guy in there?

We are getting a cabinet between the toilet and shower; much taller than our original little Home Depot cabinet we bought when we moved into our 2nd house about 20 years ago.

Douglas Bernhardt, our contractor and great family friend for many years, came by to do the demo.

Carla and I have little 5 gallon buckets we can use to wash in 🙂
Thursday the cabinets go in; then the template for the countertops. Then next week the countertops and plumbing will be installed.
Stay tuned.

    Howard, Ron and I just finished a master bath remodel. You should know that no one says remodel (except for you and me) any more–everyone says renovate! Anyway, we LOVE our new bathroom. It was worth all the inconvenience of having to walk down the hall to the kids bathroom. What a wimp I am. Complaining about walking down the hall to the bathroom. Good luck with the remodel and if you want come over and see how ours turned out. We took down the mega mirror we had and put in two built-in medicine cabinets. They are one of my favorite parts of the bathroom. We also sprung for the heated floor. We haven't used it yet, but I imagine come January I will be glad we did that too. Hope all is well with you and Karla. Karen

    “Renovate” That's going to be tough to get off the tongue; I've been thinking “remodel” since I was a kid. I'll work on it 🙂
    We thought about replacing the mirror with something but couldn't get our heads around an alternative. Everyone who has heated floors love them, maybe that will be phase 2!

    Thanks for the comment. I LOVE comments
