Here is the original floor plan of our house. There where two middle bedrooms that had a wide hallway between them. The smaller bedroom had to be passed through in order to get the bathroom. This section of the house also had very low ceilings, like around 6 1/2 feet tall. Parts of those drop ceilings were dropping themselves to the floor with damage.
That wide center hallway got the ceilings raised and vaulted. It got narrowed to make room for a hall bathroom.
Green shows the walls that basically stayed in the same location, with green X's showing the parts that got removed. (Again - I know marker and cell phone pics are not the most professional stuff, but this is for me to remember and the kids to look back on so bare with me.)
In the new floorplan you can see the layout of the hall bath and how they used the basic layout of the old walls to make up the new hallway.
Once the demo was done you could see some amazing old logs and hand cut beams in the walls and ceilings. Here is some cosmetic damage from an old kitchen fire (in a spot that is different from where the kitchen we removed was).
They had to cut access panels in the original sub floor and reworked the location of some plumbing and electrical to work around more old beams and logs. There was no going through that stuff.
The counters for the boys bath are wonderful. I fell in love with them the second I saw them and I wish they were in my room instead.
Here is the sample back with details.
The beam was covered up on accident by the drywall folks. We were just going to let it stay covered and love the other few we had exposed, but then we needed the space to fit everything in and it got re-exposed. The bottom of it got cut out since it is just cosmetic at this point and the cabinet slid into that spot.
I really wanted the single trough sink with two faucets but the cost was huge. Lucky for me my builder/designer can up with this inexpensive option. It has worked perfectly and I love the look.
The beam shows cut outs at the top from old construction projects. Poor thing, its had some abuse in its life.
The cabinet is really solid and might actually hold up to my crazy boys destruction for awhile.
I got the shelf for above the toilet from a flea market for $25, all made and ready to hang.
We took some scrap wood and attached two hook for towels.
