|Huge garden tub....aka The Koi Pond.|
We found ourselves in a predicament before the birth of our 4th child. We live in a rather small house and don't have much room to spare. After weighing our options, it was best for us to stay put and somehow try to squeeze in more living area. My first thought was our master bathroom.
Our master bathroom was a 12 x 14 gargantuan waste of space. Every time I entered it, I became annoyed at the amount of under utilized space.
It became the target for our remodel....at first, we contemplated tearing it out all together and using it just as a bedroom. But, after living with one bathroom for just a week - this was deemed unworkable. (Just how did my parents grow up with larger families and only one bathroom????)
I became convinced that this room could be cut in half for dual use.....a baby's room AND a bathroom. After much brain racking, my talented hubby found a plan to put this into action.

This added room should give us a few extra years in this house.....
