sweet master suite

This whirlpool tub was probably sexy in the early 1980s when it was put in!  I can see the candles burning, some music playing…Alas, the new owners have grown tired of its angled charm, and want better use of the square footage.  This project is to reconfigure a top floor gabled master suite in a 1907 San Francisco house.

The bathroom is a series of steps, resulting in a cramped shower!  Who doesn’t love the backstage makeup lighting?  There is a dormer that runs along one side of the house – with no windows – that we’re extending to the back wall (see below), and adding windows to.

It was smart to get the extra headroom in this small top floor space by adding the dormer.  I enjoy a dark sleeping space but a windowless bedroom is  gloomy and doesn’t conform to code (light, ventilation, egress…)

Those little black lights continue into the bedroom.  We’ll be adding windows to the tv wall, and all new finishes / built-ins.

Once the angled-tub is gone we’ll remove part of the wall to capture more of this southwest view over the rolling hills.

Then there’s the ‘burnt-toast bathroom‘ on the lower floor that we’ll be updating, taking out those big square tiles that look like a breakfast mishap.  Part of that is to relocate the door so you’re not looking directly from the kitchen to the – oh, hello – toilet! 

More to come with this ….
