French Country

My life in France is not what I expected.

The bathroom of the future



I have been trying to remember how and why I got myself into this project. As I had a little time today, I drove over to spend some time in the house, undistracted by workers. It was time well spent.

Though this looks like a before photo, a fair amount of demolition and cleaning has been done. Earlier shots would have been of a long partition wall which blocked any view of this area. Now you can see where my bathroom will go. That might remain as the bathroom door. We’ll add a couple of walls, a couple of fixtures. The skylights will be upgraded. The beams will remain exposed. We just got a permit to install two dormer windows,  one of which will go to the left, just off camera.

I want the attic to retain this feel but be comfortable and functional. It will be a difficult balance to pull off but I think I have the right team in place to do it. We shall see.

  1. Believe me when I say that I believe that this is after some demolition & cleaning, been there, got the T shirt and it is filthy..
    Great space-please keep the door, good news re Dormer Windows

    It’s a tricky balancing act isnt’ it? comfortable, functional but with the authentic feel that attracted you in the first place

    • You’ve got that right. It’s a challenge, too: no way can you make an LED lighting fixture look like it came from the 18th century and you don’t want the house to look like a hotel, so what do you do? I’d go on but this topic is worthy of an entire post. Thanks for the idea.
