I am going to start posting some more "before" and "after" shots of the remodel we have been working on. For the most part, it is completed now. Appliances and furniture moved in etc. I know I started this before and got side tracked, but I was looking around the other day and realized was an interesting project this was as I thought back over the progression...

This is the loft area, some shots before. It was a very low roof-line and basically just a sleeping area for younger folks. There was just an unfinished plywood floor there.

"Before" shot of the small sleeping loft area. That back area where the bed with the blue pillow is becomes the new master bath.

 To the left of that area as we see it in the above photos, we have the master bathroom, to the right is the master bedroom. We accomplished this with the construction of dormers. It is hard to show exactly how that works, I will have to get some better exterior shots, but here are some interior shots of the new finished master bath:

New master bath area with the changed pitch of the roof that gave us the headroom we need to create this space.

Again, you can see the changed roof pitch resulting from the new shed dormer. It is not a high ceiling by any stretch, but it gave us the room we needed to pull this off without violating the height restrictions with the county planning and zoning department. The vanity here is built with reclaimed oak, the counter top is soapstone and the floor is 12x12 slate.
