Hellllooo! (I always hear Mrs. Doubtfire in that high pitched voice when I type that "Hellllooo!!!") Ok, moving on. I hope you all had a fantastic Easter weekend! I apologize for the lack of posts-it always takes me several days to recover after a holiday for some reason! Our roofing project is underway and it is looking GREAT!! It is really amazing what a new roof does for the look of your home! My dad and his helper have been hard at work since Monday and after watching them for a few minutes here and there, I can once again say I am glad I am not involved in this project!! They are exhausted by the end of the day and I can't blame them. I don't think I'd last more than an hour up there. The dormer project starts today!! The contractor should be here in about an hour! He was supposed to start a couple weeks ago, but he got held up at another job and we wanted to wait for this specific guy. The windows should be done in another few weeks!! I have been taking pictures of what I can without getting in the way, and I'll share those in another post. Today, I wanted to show you our 1/2 bath, or the "Powder Room" as we say in this house. My mom always called it the powder room growing up, so that has stuck. This house had 2 bathrooms when we bought it, but as we were reworking Audrey's bath under the staircase, I realized how much wasted space we were going to have under the steps! I considered a linen closet, but decided I would rather have a 1/2 bath. Maybe it was because we had so many random people in and out doing construction, but I just wasn't thrilled at the thought of everyone having to go in our room or Audrey's room to use the bathroom. I like the idea of a "guest bath." I'm going to say "oh, it wasn't hard at all!!! It was SO easy! Absolute breeze!" But, you can probably guess how much I had to do with it.... :) In all honesty, we just had a hole cut out and then the framer threw up some short little walls. Since it is under the staircase, the ceiling is a low, slanted ceiling, but we were able to get it high enough that it is comfortable and everyone fits! :) Here are a few pictures!
So that's our itty bitty powder room. 1/2 bath. Guest bath. Hall bath. Do you have one? What do you call it???
