Hard hat zone

IT'S REALLY HAPPENING! On Monday, December 5th, I got the call that our contractor wants to start demolition on Tuesday. WOO HOO!

This is what the room looks like empty and down to the studs.

As far as I can tell, it looks like the sub-floor isn't showing any signs of water damage - and that's a good thing!

Potty has to stay a know, in case of an emergency

If my eyes are not playing games with me, it looks like the outer wall is insulated - waiting for confirmation on that.
The bathroom is tiny and that makes the layout somewhat difficult. Not to mention that, when drawing my plans, I had forgotten to take the hall cupboard that takes up space in the bathroom (2' deep) into consideration If they were to build the bath with the layout I posted earlier, the vanity would only be 22" wide - WAY too small. So it's back to the drawing board.

Here are a couple of the new layouts I've come up with:

This is almost the same layout as we have now, just with a shower instead of a tub and a smaller window

I'm afraid this one will be too tight and not sure I'll like not having a mirror over the sink....closing it might make the bath dark..
Now the contractor has to come up with a layout. Then we have to talk and figure out what works and what works best for us.

Aloha Hui Hou!


  1. Of the two I like the first one better too.

  2. Check my Plans Change again post - that's the layout we'll be going with


Go ahead, don't be shy. Love to hear your thoughts and helpful comments!
