Can you spell “Empty Nesters?” Well, with the kids grown and out of the house, wifey asked if we could convert our fourth bedroom to a new “Guest Bath” and a new Walk in Closet off of our Master Bed Room.

Of course I said “Sure we can do that.” Thus the journey began.

We started by de-constructing the bedroom. We had to remove the closet area on the south wall and part of the wall behind it. I moved a 4’ section of the wall about 12” back into the back side of the closet in the adjacent bedroom. That having been done I built a stub wall for privacy around the commode and a full wall to divide off the room. Once they were built, I ran new electrical circuits, cut up the concrete slab and ran new rough plumbing and relocated the overhead lighting.
Here’s what the rough work looked like.

After that it was time to start putting things together. Here is a pic of the finished commode area

This is the free standing vanity shelf I built. Wifey did the granite top.

The entrance to the room ( the set back is where the closet used to be)

Of course she wanted a modular free standing Jacuzzi/Steam Shower/Tub. So we put one in

We still have to finish painting the trim. But that’s another weekend.

Have a great day.

Nice post, this took you a couple of hours to renovate….

I like the lay-out; the free standing Jacuzzi/Steam Shower/Tub is a must. Wow, all the things they can put in one unit.
