I'm really going to have to get it in gear and work out harder. Just to be worthy of the shower that Aaron has designed.
Some of the glass came in already and it is easier to imagine what it will look like now. I'm impressed! Just to recap, here is what everything looked like before:
It was a beat up tub with a paste-board surround that was crusted with mold (we took these pictures during the walk through before we moved in). The room is narrow and awkward...the ceiling sloped at the point and Aaron had to get creative with the design in order to fit in everything that was needed without a major reconfiguring of the plumbing.
So, he designed this.
The plan required the shower walls to be glass so that light from the windows can reach the space where the sink will be and not make the narrower transition space feel too cramped. So we could make the most of the smaller space and still have it feel light and airy. The fixtures and tile would be retro (definitely more retro than the glued down vinyl on the floor!) but the walls of the shower would be more modern.
So, now we have gone from this:
To this! (The glass is shimmed up there until the third piece comes in...)
See? Now you know why I feel like I have to work out. And get blinds or shades for the windows. Definitely. I don't want the neighbors to know us THAT well.
