Master Bedroom Walk In Closet 7/17/13

I need to start talking about this project. It started in mid-April. You may remember this photo from my facebook page.

This space needs to be a walk-in closet and bathroom for our Master bedroom

This space needs to be a walk-in closet and bathroom for our Master bedroom

It is time. We currently have 1 full bathroom upstairs and 1/2 downstairs. It is a freakish marvel that a family of five made it through the 3-kid, high school, wonder years with one shower and still love each other dearly. So, you ask, why now that they are gone? Well, they keep coming back! Seriously though, the full bath has seen better days and needs to be gutted, as you might expect. Because we cannot seem to catch the DIY or HGTV channels at our local Home Depot and Lowe’s stores the renovation of the bathroom could take some time, therefore, we need to make another bathroom. Plus, it will add value to our house and I want my own bathroom. The latter being the most important reason. :) BUT! I am willing to work for it, so, here goes.

This is where I am.

The bathroom will be to the right of the closet. This is the most involved project I’ve ever done and I am both terrified and confident. There are so many details and so many things affect other things and that makes it terrifying because I don’t know if I’ve thought of everything. I’ve measured the hell out of the space and the measurements are not matching exactly in the building part. I’ve also thought it to death. Here’s the approximate drawing which I have altered 1000+ times.

This is the drawing for the master bedroom, walk in closed and bathroom, edited over and over again.

Sorry for the worst photography ever. You get the idea though, right?
