Three long and torturous months and it is finally done. A wall was knocked down, the floor was ripped up, and all new pipes (we're up to code now!) were put in. This bathroom is in our basement underneath the stairs, so we didn't have a ton of room to work with. Hence, the knocking down of one wall which managed to give us an extra two feet of space. Our shower is now 5 feet by 3 1/2 feet of pure bliss. We even have one of those brand new Kohler rain shower plates in the ceiling of our shower. It is a dream come true for my hubby. I think my favorite part is the heater. I love that I don't have to freeze every time I step out of the shower. Aaaaahhh.
It may not look like a whole lot, but it is pure heaven for us. I wish I had before pictures to show you. I forgot to take any before the carpenter started ripping everything out. The previous bathroom looked like a moldy, nasty, dark, ugly cave. I was actually thinking of submitting it into TLC's "Ugliest Bathroom in America" contest. The shower wasn't even a plastic unit, it was four plastic walls and a plastic base that you kind of "stick" together. It was heinous and small. You could barely turn around to get the shampoo without knocking your elbows on the wall. So bad.
These pictures don't really do my new, lovely bathroom justice. It is much bigger than it looks in these pics. And yes, we have a toilet. I just thought I didn't need to post a pic of the toilet since we all know what they look like. Ours is purple with big, orange polka dots and a fuzzy, red tassle trim. Ya know, your typical toilet.
Anyway, I talked about this bathroom on my blog so many times I figured I should post a few pictures. Do you feel the love? Aaaahhh.
