I even tried to download his software, but it is so old it won't work on my computer. Double Ugh.
Anyway, I thought I'd write a bit about probably the most non-traditional aspect of our house: the "family bathroom".
I grew up with 3 sisters and a brother and 2 bathrooms. To be honest, we only really used one of those. So 6 people getting ready in one bathroom. I do remember disagreements, but by and large it worked for us.
We wanted to keep this house simple and not duplicate things. I can share a bathroom with my kids. They can share a bathroom with each other. So we had the idea to make a bathroom of compartments. I've never been a fan of the toilet being next to "clean" areas like the sink and tub. I get that it came from grouping wet areas together, but I think we can improve on that. So we will put the toilet in a little room by itself, we will put the shower and tub together so someone can shower while someone else is brushing their teeth. No pounding on the bathroom door for us.
The bathroom plan has probably been the area that has seen the most revisions. I would bet we have changed it 6 times since I originally posted our plan.
Here is the latest that we will be keeping for the pricing set.

A few things explainedThe single will be an ikea double sink with 4 cabinets below (one for each of us). The space is wider than that unit, so we will hack it with a wood countertop run under the sink and extending out giving us space for a trash can, hand towels, etc.
We set the window back because that is south facing and likely pretty hot in the summer. By just setting the window back 1'-0" it will create enough shadow so that room doesn't heat up.
Here's a really terrible material collection from the pinterest board.
As I've said before, I don't do mood boards, so this is pretty ugly.
We will use the same shower controls from our old bathroom. I get my groovy freestanding tub with a very affordable wall mounted tub filler and hand shower (great for rinsing the girl's hair during a bath!).
Please send less busy and speedy vibes to Marc so he can finish our pricing set. Or I might loose my damn mind. Thanks!
