This gallery is roughly a chronolgy of our 2004 front bathroom remodel.
Unfortunately, the before pictures didn't turn out, so it's hard to
convey what an amazing transformation has taken place. Enjoy.

We removed one of those awful drop ceilings made of fiberboard squares.  
You can see where the old ceiling was installed from the paint line. 
Previous owners had painted over the lovely cedar logs. UGH!!!

We tried hard to restore the walls to the original cedar.  
After stripping twice and then sanding, we gave up and repainted. Bummer. :(

The window will eventually be inside the shower, 
so we raised and enlarged the original opening and 
installed a Milgard vinyl awning window.

To let more natural light in, we installed a Velux skylight. 
The stained glass transom window was a great find at a recycled building supplies store.

Since the walls are solid cedar, we had to frame in a false wall to run electrical and plumbing.

Shower floor tile is in. Still some bracing around the window.
The white stripe along the left side shows how out of plumb the wall is. UGH! 
Nothing is straight or level in this house!

Disaster strikes!  Custom 3/8 thick tempered glass shower
 door panel explodes in our hands for no apparent reason.  
Manufacturer finally agrees to replace under warranty, but 
I am no longer sure frameless glass shower doors are a good idea.

Still waiting on the replacement shower door,

Artwork is being rematted. Can't wait to move in!

I am so frustrated with Holcam Shower Doors! 
In this picture you can see just how far 
outside the track the inside door is when open.

More HOLCAM Shower Door problems. The outside door drags 
(even adjusted as high as possible) and is so warped it drags 
against the inside of the frame. We're afaid it will result in 
another exploding shower door incident.
