Sometimes I just feel totally bogged down. While Dave has been busy spreading composted manure he got from a local horse farm and potting/topsoil from a marijuana growing operation–they deliver it for free–on the gardens and flower beds, I have been trying to put together the finalized master bathroom plan.
Guess what? I’m back to the original plan! I thought I wanted the extra room space and square doorways created with my latest drawing, but today I laid out the toilet, vanity and tub and decided that there is enough room to angle the doors and create the larger closet. Plus my friend Steve said the plan looked like it had “too much hallway” or wasted space in front of the closet.
Here is what the bathroom looks like laid out with fixtures. The tub, sink, and vanity are all re-used fixtures.
I think I will really like the vanity stand when it is stripped of the dark red paint and sanded silver. I’m thinking I might just leave it silver and put on a clear finish. Or maybe I’ll paint it copper. I love copper color and the two lantern sconces I have are copper/bronze colored too.
I realized that putting 1 1/2 inches of polyiso insulation on the foundation wall had consequences for the toilet rough in. The toilet actually hits the insulation behind it and I could replace the 1 1/2 stuff with 1″ but I looked around for solutions to moving the toilet flange and I found this device.
These are apparently not legal in new construction but are allowed in remodels. I will have to chip away the concrete a little to set it at floor level, but it appears that this device will give some wiggle room behind the toilet for the wall finish.
I finished all this planning and moving around by noon and then I couldn’t figure out what to do next so I just goofed off and took care of some business stuff for my Mom and myself. I need to keep my nose to the grindstone or the house will never be done! Maybe Mañana.
