Bath Expansion In An Old House

Bath Expansion In An Old House

This was an old 5ft x 7ft 1930’s bath. A previous remodel had enclosed an old sleeping porch. For this remodel, we changed the old window into a passageway and expanded the bath to include a large vanity, storage, and European-style wet room containing a shower and soaking tub.

A Trio of Baths on a Budget

My client wanted to remodel both baths as well as the Powder Room on a limited budget.

The master bath also needed additional storage but the family didn’t need two tubs so we could convert the tub in the master to a shower only – freeing up some space.
