The Conservatory Bathroom — Almost Finished

Back in January we had a number of projects remaining in the conservatory bathroom.

The shower will be enclosed something like this.

  3. The plumber needs to check the showerhead because the flow is stifled.
    This showerhead has limited water pressure but the rest of the fixtures in the bathroom are fine. We think some pipe shavings got stuck in the showerhead.

  6. Hang a mirror over sink.
    This mirror is a good size but I prefer to use it in the master bathroom.

  8. Hang photos of the source of vintage wood.
    This diagonal sheathing which we removed from the house is being repurposed in the conservatory bathroom.

    The house during demolition photos are hung in the bathroom because we used that wood to finish the vanity and shelves.

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.

  1. Hah, I’m still searching my mind for small things that were taken in the break in. I’ve found some gaps but can’t remember for sure what was there. My next project is to take pictures of each wall in each room for future reference. Your bathroom is looking very good! The vanity looks great and the new shelves will help with storage, I think.

    1. One thing about having a blog is that I can search the files for things I can’t remember. That has come in helpful more than a few times. Jo
