No, I had not been drinking when these pictures were taken. The only thing I can figure is that little hands were grabbing at my phone as I was snapping away… Mom and Dad’s bathroom and closet have been ripped out, and things look promising!
 We hope we can improve upon the harvest gold fixtures. 

This is the doorway from their bedroom into the bath. The smaller doorway will be closed up to give a longer wall for placing the bed. Here’s a design lesson: Sometimes trim that coordinates with the attached bath is not a winning idea!
 Ignore the yucky fixtures — this is our “Portajohn” during construction. But we are so shocked to see that this closet underneath the stairs looks much more spacious than we thought it would converted to a half bath.
 Some fun remnants of the past in the upstairs bathroom. Do you think we should revert back to one of these pretty wallpaper patterns? πŸ˜‰
One of the previous owners of this house way back when embezzled money from the bank where he worked. Legend has it that he stashed the cash somewhere in these walls… Will and Daddy can’t find it.

 It was hard to get a good shot of the upstairs bath, but it has opened up so much. 

 Once this wall is knocked down, little Will is going to have a great bedroom — much bigger than we expected!

 Fortunately, there was no need to demo the late-afternoon view… When we start feeling overwhelmed we have to go sit on the porch for awhile and remind ourselves that this really is going to be great — one day!
Thank you so much for stopping by today. We hope you have a fabulous Monday!
