FIRST FLOOR BEDROOM

This is what the room looked like when we first moved in. It really wasn't a bedroom. It was called a parlor room. It was basically a second living room. The previous owners could no longer use the stairs to go to the bathroom on the second floor so they had a toilet and sink installed in this room and used it as their bedroom. As you can see, there are no walls around the toilet.

This parlor room is going to be converted into a bedroom with a bathroom and a walk-in closet. The new bathroom is going to be located in the same area as the current bathroom. However, the new bathtub is going to be installed in the area where the toilet and sink are. The new toilet and sink are going to be installed opposite from where they currently are - closer to the window.

The mantle was nice but it took up much needed space so we decided to remove it.

All of the windows and frames are going to be replaced.

These radiator pipes are going to be moved behind the walls so that they are no longer exposed.

The carpet and baseboard molding are going to be removed.

The plaster ceiling and walls are going to be demolished.

The new closet will be built in this area.
