Creep

Lol, I know it sounds like I have a weirdo stalker with a title like this, but its a real thing.  Having your walls torn down, flooring removed, and having no heat or running water is apparently so addicting you want to keep doing it. Not.  But apparently we do, because we decided to expand the scope of our project even more…as contractors call it “scope creep.” Its a real thing.

We had always planned to someday update the master bathroom. At the moment its perfectly functional, but not particularly updated. When the house was built it had three bedrooms, then in the 90’s the previous owners added on a master bedroom and bathroom. But the layout of the home meant it got added onto an existing bedroom. So instead of it being a 4 bedroom, it was still a 3 bedroom but now you walked through one bedroom to get to the master. It was sort of like a sitting room, but the master itself is really big so it didn’t need this extra weird space. What they didn’t add though, was a walk-in closet, so the bedroom had long shallow closets against one wall.

The bathroom they added was also BIG, its more than 10×10. But here again the space was not used in a way that seemed functional. They only had a single vanity, and had a giant closet and just lots of empty hard to use space. It was also built in the 90’s and VERY early 90’s.

Sooo…since we had the walls/floor/ceiling open and had easy access to the plumbing we decided to go for it.  We are now converting the “sitting room” into a walk-in closet, so it will have more of an ensuite feel to it. The bathroom will get a MAJOR upgrade, with a double vanity, soaking tub, and a water closet. Basically WINNING.
