Master Bath – Clear and Ready, Sir

As everyone probably already knows, every little chore is an ordeal.

This was the master bathroom a week ago.

Here's the same room today ready for some action.

First ordeal accomplished — I have taken everything out of the master bathroom except the few pieces of cement board that must still  be installed.

Looking out from the shower area, the floor will be tiled to the doorway (which will not have a door) then be wood in the hallway beyond.

I would like this French gilt mirror centered in the doorway as seen above. (Not sure Charlie will go for it.)

The space from the shower to the end wall where the double sink vanity will sit is about 6′-11″ with 6′-6″ allotted for the length of the vanity.

This area from the cement board on the left to the purple wall on the right is 6'-11" long.  Here's were the double vanity goes.

Something like this but waaaay more elegant.

A short explanation of the plan below focusing on the master bathroom.  There is a door between the bedroom hall and the bathroom but no door between the bathroom hall (at the end of which is a linen closet) and the bathroom proper.  I think the tile should stop at the opening without the door so the entire hall way has continuity of flooring which in this case will be wood.

First order of business make the subfloor flush with the shower pan.

What ordeal are you working on?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
