Greetings fellow renovators – another installment in the never ending Misadventures Saga.If you don’t know by now, I’m a big advocate of designers and architects – someone who can visualize and plan your project. My problem is I get a ‘great’ idea when I’m almost done…such is the life of freestyle design.
It looked like this before. The front section was drywall, the back section was plaster lathe. Originally there was a wall dividing this space. There was 1/2″ difference in the ceiling surfaces between the two rooms. I spent weeks patching and leveling the surfaces – filling old lighting and fan holes. And then? Why only to tear it all out because the bath floor was too weak for the load I was going to add with the tile floors and cast iron tub. I had decided by now a new sunroom was just the ticket – so that back wall had to go… and all new plumbing was needed – so…
Now, where were we? Oh, upstairs in the master bath – I see changes on the way…
On the opposite side of the room the area behind the wall was a cold zone that I will insulate and finish for storage. Only to totally reconfigure this area because the sunroom will be constructed adjoining this wall.
Of course this was the time when I decided to take down the chimney because it will no longer be needed with the high efficiency HVAC system. Details are here.
While doing that I got the idea to rebuild the staircase which I have elaborated in several posts here.
