I added a shower inside my bedroom!
A 3-BEDROOM HOUSE WITH NO MASTER BATHROOM?!?
Well, check it out. My very own shower (and a pretty fancy one at that!). And we put it IN the bedroom. See the story.
A FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT MINI? WHAT?
When I found my house, almost 4 years ago, it was love at first site. It was a Frank Lloyd Wright mini (which just means 'they' copied FLW's plans), in a gorgeous neighborhood and with a pool. The part that I didn't love, which was almost a deal-breaker, was that there was only one full bathroom. See that room up on top of the roof in the photo below. That's the "master" bedroom with only a half bath!
Well, I guess it wasn't a deal breaker. I bought the house and we have adored it. But, sharing a bathroom with my 3 kids downstairs was getting really old. So Lance and I decided to try to figure out how to add a bathroom upstairs without changing the footprint.
It would have been too expensive to add it outside of the existing walls. Plus we'd have to deal with permits.
SO, WE PUT THE SHOWER INSIDE THE BEDROOM.
BEFORE/AFTER (STRAIGHT ON)
AND HERE'S WHAT THE INSIDE LOOKS LIKE.
We used a slightly smaller sized rain shower head that has been lowered slightly so I can adjust it. And this cute little niche for soap and stuff.

So, that's it.
Hope you enjoyed the story of how we added a shower to the bedroom.
Lincoln Avenue: Disaster of the Week
So, the electrician was doing his stuff at the house. When he got to the back corner and tried to drill holes through the studs, there was nothing to drill into. Water damage from overflowing gutters led to dry rot and termites. Ugh.
