My Master Bath project
This started out as a small 7x7 bathroom alongside a 7x7 walk in closet.

And finished up as one 7x14 Mstr Bath.

And I LOVE The flatscreen idea

Closet Space
Actually there was a very small 9x10 bedroom, over the foyer, that was turned into the Master closet.

Going to post more pics of the other projects, Kitchen, Family Room, Dining Room, too. Don't have any before pics, just under construction pics.

Thanks for the pat on the back....

Gorgeous! Is that a pocket door you used? I can't tell for sure. If so, what do you think of it?

ktkelly 05-26-2007 08:28 PM

Yes, it is a pocket door. And would pocket doors have fit in a couple other locations where I've done some remodeling, I would have used pockets doors in those locations as well.

More than like them, love them! Great floor space savers when you are pushed for room.

The door right now is just a raised panel slab, but it'll be changed to a beveled glass unit as soon as I get to it.

Working on the landscaping now.....:)

I'm speechless too. WWWWOOOOOWWWWW.

Very, very nice.

I love having a tub and a shower. Well, I could care less about the tub but the g/f likes it so it stays. You know how that goes.

Now, did you do all of this yourself? If so, you should take a road trip to NC for a few weeks, I'll take some time off of work and we'll have a good old time with 4 bedrooms upstairs. :wink:

Pat on the back h**l, you need a kick in the butt for making me so sad when I get home and go to the bathroom. haha

Do you have any concerns about tiling over the pocket door area...I know these areas are very flimsy. I did a bathroom remodel with the exact same set-up, and I was concerned, so I went through the trouble of screwing a 1/8" thick by 1" wide aluminum strip where the stop is on the edge of the pocket to help with the flex. It worked pretty well. I then pre-drilled through the aluminum and hand nailed finish nails to put the stop back on over the aluminum....if this makes any sense.

I didn't really do anything special with the pocket door walls.

Basic sheetrock screwed down and moldings finish nailed. Sure seemed more than rigid enough. Besides, it's not like that area is going to get a lot of abuse. Anyone gets close to that wall has a TV up side the head....:laughing:

I forgot to mention that you did a beautiful job, by the way. I do it for a living and I would be proud to put my name on that bathroom.

I love the television in the master bath! Excellent touch.

Ran out of room or it would have had a fireplace....:yes:

I've seen that done though.

I installed a 37" Plasma with a complete 5.1 surround system in a luxury bath last year. This bath had a fireplace, the home theater system with PC input (could sit in tub cruising the net using a "Air Mouse") and a HUGE jacuzzi....

The music extended into the master shower/steam room too.

A bath that you would never want to leave.....:laughing:

The Shower
That bathroom looks amazing. Did you install the shower door also? How did the shower turn out. cant see from the pictures.
