Improved Floor Plan

The fixture locations stayed the same, and the owners got help from handy family members. That meant the biggest single expense in this $5,000 gut reno was the tilework.

The changes:

1. Replaced the toilet with one that has period styling, and added a wood seat.

2. Pulled out the cast-iron tub and removed the lowered ceiling over the tub/shower. The new bathtub is easy-to-install fiberglass.

3. Evened up the vanity wall, which previously had an awkward bumpout.

4. Swapped the one-sink vanity for a more functional two-sink version for the family of three and spiffed it up with chrome knobs.
