|bathtub still in place, buckets covering where toilet used to be|
|steam shower will go where tub is now, door is to hallway|
|new built-in closet where toilet is now stored, pocket door will be installed where plastic sheeting hangs between bathroom and bedroom|
|where storage cabinet used to be|
|window in what used to be the WC|
|chimney that is the source of our problem (storage cabinet space on left, WC window on right)|
Now that the chimney is more centered in the room, it really shoves the double vanity right up to the window and makes the room look lopsided. Putting one single vanity on either side will not work because of the window shown above--there is not enough room. So our only option at this point is to make room by replacing the current window with a much smaller window (which will still be in the WC) and gain more wall space on that side of the chimney. Then we can put a sink on either side.
It will be more complicated since it involves work on the exterior of the house, but I think it will be worth it in the end. We are still thinking about other options, and may very well come up with something else that works. As usual, you never know what will happen with an old house!
