Architect Sketch – Bathroom Concept A

The bathrooms in Our Care-free Home are original and hideous. One is Pepto pink, the other is mint green. Both are 50s tile and mirror masterpieces.

We’re trying to think of it as a bathroom “evolution”… from our single, tiny condo bathroom to Jack and Jill bathrooms in the new house. From one sink to two, from one mirror to two… even though they’re hideous, two is better than one. Right? Riiiight? It’s hard to stick with this mindset when you’re actually in the bathrooms, unfortunately.

And when looking at the beautiful granite in our current condo bathroom… and the polished sink, stainless faucet, marble tile, pristine toilet… it’s impossible to imagine waking up to the Pepto nightmare every morning!

Our plan is to demolish most of the pantry – what would have been used as the utility room in the original home plan – and create a large master bathroom. A small portion of the pantry would stay, and we’d build out shelves accordingly. The other bathroom will be remodeled slightly, becoming a smaller guest bathroom.

 Included in this post is one bathroom concept from our resident architect (Rob’s dad and my future father-in-law), Doug McChane. It features some changes to the office, assuming the front bedroom is used as such. In this sketch, the rear bedroom is not shown.
