The One Room Challenge Take 2!

Once again it’s time for the “One Room Challenge sponsored by Linda at Calling it Home! This fall, I linked up to this online design challenge and attempted to clear the clutter that had been accumulating in my home office over about 5 years of my stay-at-home to full-time employment back to work-for-myself transition period. I got about 50% done going through all the boxes, files, creative bits and pieces. Going through years worth of paperwork and saved items is NOT a fun process. And even if the expected result is a feeling of joy once the unneeded objects are removed, it really does take a continuous and conscious effort to get to the finish line (and is there ever really an end to daily clutter?) I admitted that I did not complete my self assigned project on my final ORC blog post, and promised to continue the story. So for this fresh start spring challenge, I will be picking up where I left off in my home office and just to keep it real will also be starting a BRAND NEW design-build project ... our 3rd floor master bath!

We actually started the renovation of our 3rd floor attic back in 2009 (seriously, where does the time go???) We managed to completely finish the relocation of our master bedroom from the second floor to the third (we decided to give up our original room to our growing boys) by building a brand new space where there was once just an uninsulated storage area without even a real set of stairs for access. We left room to the left of our bedroom for a master bath as well as a walk-in closet. See where that black stack pole is above? That is where the master bath is going. Below is a picture of how the framed space looks today. As you can see, there is a lot of work to do! The plumbing is roughed in already thanks to my darling husband and we actually have ALL the fixtures needed for the room ready to be installed. I will tell you more about what I selected and how I got them in my next post ...

I am so excited to share the progress of this project and of course am looking forward to the day when I no longer have to share a bathroom with ALL the guys!
