Master Bedroom Project Update

Slowly but surely, we're making progress! We got the estimate from the electrician, and hopefully they can come out this coming week to get things going.

Meantime, we relocated the existing bathroom door, seen here: the new bathroom entrance!
We also started tearing down the bathroom wall, which will open the bathroom up to about double the size.

Do you see all those wires? Gah! Any thoughts of doing the electrical work ourselves went out the window when we saw all this. The wires come from the ceiling into a light/fan switch, then go over to an outlet, and then some go over again to the bathroom next door, and some go down through the floor, to the bathroom downstairs. I'm not touching this!!

We'll replace the current 1980's style vanity and sink with a new double vanity and double sink. Yay! We officially relocated to the spare bathroom this weekend. At least it's on the same floor!

We're still debating what to do as far as the bathtub area. Originally we were thinking we'd just re-tile. But, the tub is so small and shallow, that its useless for taking a bath. Do we replace with a bigger bathtub? Maybe one with a jacuzzi? Or do we remove the tub and make it a tiled walk-in shower?

We checked with our realtor, and got her advice. What do you think? If you were buying a house, would you miss a tub in the master bathroom? Our house currently has 3 full baths.

As long as there's a tub in one of the bathrooms I'd be happy - I think I'd rather have the walk in shower in the master bath and a tub in one of the other bathrooms.

tough call! Showers can be so indulgent with all the shower heads and places to sit but it's also nice to soak in a hot tub and snuggle into bed right after! OK, I'm terrible at decision making!
