More framing. It's actually starting to look like something. I have plumbing, I have electical. I can walk around in there, following the foot patterns I will use in real life. So it feels more real. And my shower looks HUGE! We did a lot of debating on if we should make is smaller so that the toilet had more than the recommended 15" space (from center to wall) but ultimately left it. A big shower feels luxurious and the toilet will have more space than it did previously. And the wall next to it is glass, so will feel open. And the other side is 100% open, so we left it as planned.
The shower pan.
We are actually moving the light switches below (for overhead in the shower and the fan) to the other wall, since this wall seems perfect for a towel hook.
The toilet position, in releation to the shower pan can be seen here. The area behind the framed wall is the laundry closet-to-be.
Standing in the bathroom, lookin down the new hall to the bedroom. When the pocket door on the right is closed, it's a master suite. This hall used to be through the middle of a closet. Which I did not dig.
That same hall, the closet is on the left and enclosed now.
We did hit another snag of the plumbing variety. We noticed a puddle on the basement floor and figured it was from the new plumbing work. Not so, the new plumbing work just jostled a pipe that the closet guy had drilled 2 holes through. No joke. That upcharge information is to come, along with the pictures of the resulting mess. The upside is that the leak became evident when the contractors and plumbers were already here and the walls were still open, so that it was easy to diagnose the problem and we had folks on hand to fix it. Oh, and the other upside is that their plaster guy will repair the holes. I just have to paint them. I can certainly do that.
Oh, and since I leave for work before it's light out and get home after it's dark...well, these pics are taken by the light of my new lights! Yay! And boo for such a late daylight savings start this year. I need vitamin D! Or a weekend to take some better lit pictures. Or both.
If you still want more, you can see detail on how we handle the shower in front of the window here, the finishes for this space here, and tile information here, and discussion of the vanity here and here. Oh and "before" pictures here.
