What a difference another weekend makes...

For some reason, these images are less startling to me than the last ones. Perhaps because we're now at the stage of building back, instead of tearing out.  That's progress, right? 

It seems so long ago that the upstairs bathroom looked like this. Little did we know at the time just how much of this room would change. 

And it all began with a hidden window...

We are thinking of centering the bathtub on the south facing window.

The old sink was to the right of the window, in front of the door way (black plastic). It will be nice to open up that entrance more without the sink being there. The new sink will go to the left of the 'hidden' window.

The shower will, hopefully, go in the linen closet which you can barely see to the right of the door. 

Linens will go... Hmmm, wish we could have both the linen closet and separate shower. Linens will have to go somewhere else in the room, or in the hallway closet just outside the bathroom door. 

It's snowing this morning. I believe winter is tiptoeing, ever so quietly, into our landscape once again. 

Beautiful seasons. 


  1. Catherine, I've really been enjoying your progress reports! Having just finished a (four-year) kitchen restoration/renovation in our old house, I really appreciate all your "during" pictures. The "during" lasts so much longer than we expect it to, doesn't it?

  2. I love it when you post. I am watching this progress and drooling. It's going to be so fabulous!

  3. Love watching the progress . . .
    I agree . . .
    Beautiful Seasons . . .

  4. This is going to be gorgeous! I think a home renovation is a lot like life. It's a process and journey that can be exciting, frustrating, joyous, and crazy all at the same time. I love that you're turning the house into your home one day at a time :)

  5. Just think in the winter months you will seek warmth from your new made for you lovely bathroom.
    Think ahead, your almost there.
    Soon you will be home.

  6. Doesn't it feel like it takes forever? Before moving into my home now, we had to completely gut both bathrooms in the house and I swear it took forever, or just felt that way. It's hard to imagine that it will all come together and be beautiful but worth all the time it took. I don't know if you have plans to do this in your bathroom but the best feature that my husband talked me into was radiant flooring. Getting up in the middle of the night and stepping on cold travertine during the winter months would not have been so fun, now my floor is so warm that even my cat likes to nap in there.

  7. Would it be possible to put a shower in the corner where the toilet was and put the sink and toilet on the opposite wall? It's hard to tell from the photos?

    1. Hi Steve!
      The plumber says the toilet needs to stay where it is. It is stacked above the one downstairs. Everything else may wander...


Thank you for leaving your thoughts. Kind regards, Catherine
