I showed Part One: the progress in the conservatory that has been accomplished in the past week. We had also made decisions in the upstairs addition (master closet and master bathroom) which have now been framed.
The new door to the bedroom will take the place of this window.
A doorway has been made where the window once was.
Just as in the conservatory this second floor addition will not be “finished” in the first round of improvements but the interior walls and closets have been framed. Electricity, plumbing, and heating ductwork will be roughed in.
The casement window over the bump-out is on the wall where the sinks are planned.
The view from inside the window over the bump-out includes the potager (foreground) and the back yard.
As we enter the new hall the master bedroom is on the right and will be open to the new hallway.
The amended layout for the second floor addition.
On the left is a walk-in closet with a window in the center of the exterior wall which looks out over the driveway.
This enormous area (7′-8″ by 11 ‘) with a window will be our new master closet.
Continuing down the hall past the closet straight ahead is a linen closet which I would love to look something like this.
The linen closet/display shelves will be straight ahead.
Making a sharp left one finds oneself in the master bathroom.
Step across the threshold and turn left, you’re in the bathroom. (This photo is looking through the closet wall into the bathroom.)
As in the conservatory we have decided to put the shower along the back of the room where the bird’s eye window is located.
The shower in the master bathroom is as wide as the room.
Under the window (not visible in photo above) on the right we’ve decided to have a cabinet with double sinks. Tucked in the corner on the left is the toilet.
Viewed from the shower, the interior wall of the master bathroom.
Between the shower and the toilet knee-wall I plan to use the vanity that I inherited from my mother.
The dressing table will sit between these two knee walls, toilet on the left and shower on the right.
Not being a fan of knee-walls myself we chose to use them in this room for very specific reasons which I’ll explain in a future post.
Charlie and I still have lots of decisions in here: fixtures, towel bars, mirrors, window treatments, cabinets . . .
How do you make your vision become reality?
