Master Suite

A few weeks ago Bill started working on our Master Suite. Our house (remember, the NEW house we bought in 1985) has been in an almost constant state of remodel---projects over the years have included a 2 story addition which contains 2 bedrooms, a full bath, a den & dining room; old dining room turned into a bedroom and bath, the old kitchen was doubled in size and updated, complete foundation work completed. Now it's time to finally do our Master Suite. The original girls' bedroom is becoming a walk-in closet and beautiful bath with a huge walk-in shower.

I'm married to a wonderfully talented man---not only did he draw the plans for the beautiful suite, but he can do the demolition, the carpentry, the electrical & plumbing. He'll do all the beautiful tile work, the painting, carpeting our room and all.

It is interesting to see what you find when you demo parts of a house.....especially our house. This house holds all sorts of secrets and when you remove walls or wall board the secrets are exposed. When the Sheetrock came off the old kid's room walls we found an old window......the bedroom was once a covered porch and the window was on what was once an outside wall! The first picture is Bill in the soon-to-be bathroom from our room and the other is from bathroom looking into our room. You can barely move in our's full to the brim of dressers and hanging clothes that will go into the closet when it's finished.

I'm looking forward to the new bathroom and a shower with every kind of shower heads imaginable. The tiles we picked are so pretty. I'll be sure to keep you all updated.
