June 2011–Bathroom Reno Wishlist

I just came across the wishlist we made before we started talking to contractors and architects or the District of Maple Ridge. I have not edited it. Does it make any sense?

Once again, here is the Northeast corner of the house as it is now

Bathroom Reno wishlist–June 2011

  • more space
  • more height
  • deep tub in NE corner along east wall under the window OR…with heater to maintain water temperature and jets to circulate it
  • shower pad next to the tub on the north wall—pebble tiles?
  • same toilet in same location
  • move the north wall to be flush with the rest of the north exterior wall
  • eliminate the linen cupboard.
  • rebuild the bedroom cupboard walls (NW corner of bathroom)

o   push the North closet wall approx. 9” north to line up with the shower

  • vanity and sink on West wall close to present location

o   same sink mounted on ‘antique’

  • a tall linen cupboard on the West wall between the vanity and new closet wall
  • tile or slate floor with radiant heating
  • new subfloor
  • drywall stripped off and water damage repaired if necessary
  • ceiling raised as much as possible in a slope
  • fan for ventilation
  • grey water system to feed toilet from a rain barrel at the corner of the house
  • new basement door
  • height issues in the basement improved by new drain pipe configuration
