Bathroom—sneak peek

LThe new master bathroom is almost ready for it’s official closeup.  I have a few pictures of the progress. The Orangerie had to be totally ripped off of the house due to rotten timbers in the ceiling. Mr. P said that he just loved having the whole room trimmed, caulked, painted, and paid for shortly before we ripped it off of the house—sorry.

Oh well, the Oranjerie is beautiful now as a new addition to the house with  heating and cooling, insulation and a real roof. Goodbye broken glass ceiling that leaks!  Instead of just turning two bathrooms into one, we now have a  sun room, master closet and master bathroom-spa area. I call it a master bathroom-spa, because we added a 5′ x 5′ steam shower and a Kohler bubble tub called Tea for Two. The wonderfully deep soaking tub has tiny air jets at the bottom—can’t wait. Take a look at the progress.

Here is the new sunroom addition—long lovely windows were added

One door now leads to the bathroom—before we had two, one to each bathroom
