What started out as the "work shop", as it is labeled in on our house map that the previous owners left, has recently gone under a transformation. Previously it was a corner of the basement located under the kitchen. SIL lives in the basement. We thought this would be better then giving her a tiny room across the hall from us. So far it has worked out amazingly. But this corner of her floor was a typical cleaned up basement. It is where the original cabinets of the house had lived for some time. It also housed the water heater, water storage for the baseboard heating, and various other things along those lines.
The bathroom isn't finished but to to compare some before and after pictures. I had pictures of the frame process, but they were lost along with my phone mid summer. Hopefully these picture make since even though you can't see everything!
The alcove in the after 2 is the area under the stairs in the before. The wall is directly next to it, wasting no space and has about a foot and a half mini wall making up the door way. That is a 60 inch shower surround in the after. It has the shower head coming out of the ceiling with the control knobs to the right of the surround. It is basically directly in line with with window in the before picture. The room does not go back the length of the room. We needed to get to the fuse box and plumbing in the far back corner of the before picture. If you look closely in the after 2 to the top right hand corner you can see a piece of wood hanging from the ceiling. This is a place holder for a sliding "barn door" that will section off the water closet part of the bathroom when needed.
This picture is now also impossible. I would have to stand in the shower, look through a wall, see a vanity area, and look through another wall.
If you could see though walls from this point you would be able to see majority of the bathroom. You could see all of the vanity, the shower (blocking the window)), toilet (under the white cabinet), and the alcove under the stairs. You would only be missing the new closet directly across from the alcove.
Think of the entire bathroom as a large I. The bottom left is the alcove under the stairs that will get shelves eventually. The top left is the water closet that closes off with a barn door. The top right is a vanity with floating shelves and wall lighting. Concluding with the bottom right closet.
The tile, obviously, is what we used through out the house in all the revamps. Hope this give you a better understanding of the new lay out and how far it has come. Now, to go work on it more!
