Let There Be Light


Several of you asked how our home addition and remodel incoming along. Now that the electricians have begun installing light fixtures and other electrical do–dads I’ll be better able to show the progress and results to you. I originally planned to start with our new master bathroom but the electricians haven’t finished in that room due to technical issues and my photos came out blurry, but I can at least show the shower to you. It’s a door-less walk-in and wheelchair accessible (thinking ahead as we’re not getting any younger). A pane of special safety glass will extend from the top of the half-wall in the foreground to the ceiling.


With love,

    Funny you mention wheelchair accessible. We have recently decided that our first tenant will be my 90 year old aunt and so we are revamping the bathroom to be wheelchair accessible. We’ve already changed the doorways and since we were still on the rough of the master bathroom we won’t have to undo too much to make the change. We decided against tile, which is our preference, because the tile is harder and would most likely cause more damage in a fall.

    I love the walk in shower idea and the half wall gives the bathroom a more spacious feel.

    I like a walk in shower, so much easier, thinking of getting older is always good!

      Thank you! We are blessed with a General Contractor who happens to especially love the offering tile design ideas and he helped us to select something we both love, and that isn’t an easy feat!

  5. Love it Russ. As I type this work is being done on our bath/bedroom addition. Such chaos in a little house. Such improvements await!
