We had a very small full bathroom between the two downstairs bedroom. Each bedroom door opened into this hallway; the door to the bathroom is on the right.
- turning the hallway & bathroom into one big room by removing the wall between the two
- moving the ceiling joists up from 8' to the original 10' (for some reason, the bathroom had been built with lower ceilings than the rest of the house)
- putting a shower into part of our walk-in closet--we lose some closet space, but it's definitely worth it.
- adding an extra-long, extra-wide jacuzzi tub
We've completed the tear-out, run most of the new wiring, opened up the closet for the new shower, raised the ceiling joists, and torn out a section of rotted sub-floor. It might look super scary, but if you've done renovations, you know how to look past it and envision the final product.

After tearout. We'll Freecycle anything useble and dispose of the rest.
