Part two. We didn't do a lot of planning before we decided to do this. Evan should really say no to me more frequently. This was my brain child and while I'm so glad we did it and its done, it was so much work. Much of it falling to him. Thanks babe!
After we framed out the new bathroom, we hung moisture resistant drywall everywhere. We also learned that some of the floor was rotted from a previous leak (leaks?) and had to be replaced. FUN!
Evan built in enough space for a hall closet and a bathroom closet (neither of which we had before). He also put in a cute little pocket door. With the help of Paul, the plumbing was updated for the new tub and toilet. We got the tub installed thanks to help from my dad. Then Evan and Dad worked on putting in the subway tile surround and tiling the new floor. They also put in a special nook for shampoos and soaps with a custom backsplash that our girl, Amanda helped us procure.
While Evan made a custom navy vanity for our new *double* sink, I worked on the wall mural. I also found this the sweet mirror from Habitat Restore. Evan installed the vanity and ran the plumbing. He also installed the new chandelier (West Elm Outlet again, y'all!).
Recently, he has been working on trimming out the bathroom with white oak and putting trays and drawers in both closets. Closet doors to come.
Hi! We're the Germanns.
Evan is a furniture maker and I'm an artist. We have been married for almost 10 years. We have two adorable dogs, Buckle and Kansas. Photos to come - don't you worry.
