I have shown parts of our guest bathroom, but not the whole thing. It’s a bit challenging to photograph, because there are so many reflective surfaces. You can see the two tube lights reflected so often it looks as though there are eight of them!
The guest bathroom is in the basement (high walk-out level) and it doesn’t have a window. I installed re-used (thrice!) glass block to bring in some natural light, and commissioned local artist Jose Ventura to paint a window right on the wall.
The sink is another gem from the Habitat For Humanity ReStore. Our cabinet-maker fashioned a countertop and legs to fit, from a slab of local cedar. Its design should accommodate a wheelchair, if necessary.
Likewise, the shower/steam shower – its base is a wheelchair-accessible ramp. When I was tiling the room, I started on the second row from the floor, so I could make sure that the beginning row was level. The floor changes height to accommodate the ramp.
And the bathroom door has been salvaged from a local university, complete with the obscure glass. I may put a curtain on the inside of the window some day.
I’m sharing this post with these parties:
