I know I recently told you that Mr. Comforts of Home and I are House Whisperers. We buy homes, Whisper to them, listen to what they have to say and fix them up. Then we live in them for a few more years tweaking them until they perfect.
Each home has it's own story to tell. You wouldn't invest $100,000 on a 3 bed 2 bath ranch in Hendersonville NC. I mean you could, but you shouldn't.
Here is our home we lived in 2005 - 2009. Some of you have been followers for years, but if you weren't you might have missed some of the remodeling posts on this house.
Please excuse the quality of the photos. This was several years ago with a really cheap point and shoot with no editing and I don't have the originals anymore....
These are before and after master bathroom shots.
Before Tub Area
Notice the fiber glass HUGE tub and the wall at the foot of it that is blocking the shower area.
After Tub Area
We removed the HUGE tub and replaced it with a smaller, deeper soaking whirlpool tub. The white blinds were removed and replaced with mahogany blinds on a remote control, so you didn't have to stand in the tub to open and close them, like you did before.
Before Shower Area
See the wall between the shower and tub? And see that the shower is fiberglass?
Here is the after, with the solid wall removed and frameless glass and tile shower in it's place. It really opened up the room and made it feel much larger than it was.
Here is the sink area before.
Basic stock cabinet and frameless mirror.
And here is the sink area after.
We replaced the sink cabinet with a piece that looks more like furniture and added the matching mirror.
It really didn't cost a lot to redo this bathroom. We did all of the work - demolition, plumbing, electrical, tiling ourselves. We did have the pros put in the glass shower surround.
Hope you liked seeing some House Whispering from the past....
