Bathroom renovation, before:
We’ve had a whirlwind of a summer, filled with projects, work & more work. I’m not complaining, its great to have the motivation to make shit happen in a really big way, we’re just…exhausted. The decision wrap up renovations on the Church Street Project became clear in April, and since then we have: ripped off and replaced the roof with new asphalt, added two new 4′ x 4′ skylights, removed walls to studs & finished insulating upstairs & attic, finished the bathroom renovations upstairs & finished the back entry. By August 1st- all of it, just the two of us! Since then we’ve been tackling the Amare Back Barn project, and that will continue for a while, but I wanted to update with some new finished pictures of Church St…starting with the bathroom.
upstairs bathroom before (there was nothing before so this is really a during):
We carved out a 7′ x 10′ space from a piece of the super-long bedroom.
No bathroom renovation in the state of Vermont is complete without adding a heated floor.
We used an old clawfoot tub from my mom’s first house in Weathersfield, Vermont. It’s been sitting in our basement for 15+ years, finally put it to use after a good scrubbing and a paint job. We had a tricky time figuring out how the legs went on, but finally realized that a square nail was needed to pin them into place. Who knew? The internet thank goodness.
Completed Bathroom, after:
We finished the bathroom with some aged brass & glass lamps fitted with extra large edison bulbs, shiplap walls painted a nice clean Benjamin Moore White Dove, and octagon tile from Home Depot. The tub and mirror were salvaged, the sink and base cabinet are from IKEA. Its a lovely little space overlooking the woods in the back yard, finished just in time for us to move out…!
