A Practical Post

Our friend who knows how to do everything is coming over today to work at our house.

The inspiration vanity with measurements I would use in our bathroom.

I won’t be there so I’m posting these photos and measurements so he and Charlie will have an idea of what I’m going for.

Charlie removed all the old sheathing from the house and we've saved it to use on projects during the renovation..

We’re making the vanity in the conservatory from old wood from the house’s sheathing which we removed in the demolition process.

The vanity should look something like this.

I made a very rough version of what it might look like on the conservatory bathroom. (Remember the sink?)

The plumbing access alcove on the right should be trimmed with old wood and perhaps an inset of shelves.

Something like this maybe made in 3 removable parts.

We’ve also decided to use this old wood to trim the access alcove on the other side of the room.

This is the room I hope Charlie and friend (I call him the Viking) will work on.

I’d love to come home and see this all built and hooked up in the conservatory bathroom.

Do you give other people (your husband for instance) artistic license when you’re not available?

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.
