Before: Confined and Narrow

Doug, a math teacher and an avid woodworker, gutted the space and rebuilt it, keeping the same basic layout. With knowledge gleaned from YouTube videos, he enlarged the shower to run the width of the back wall and put in four new windows. Then he built a double vanity with two separate sinks, and two medicine cabinets for needed storage. After six months of part-time remodeling, the couple finally had a light-filled bath with breathing room. "We had a vision," Cyndi says proudly, "and Doug made it come true."

Shown: At only 40 square feet, the 1980s bath was dark, confined, and in need of an update.
