I have been wanting to remodel my bathroom for years. I knew when I remodeled my main living space, a combo living/office/kitchen, in 2009 that I wanted to eventually do the bathroom. In fact, I discovered the landlord/builder (also my best friend) had left a big cavity of empty space walled in next to my vanity, so in 2008 or early 2009, I built a recessed "towel cubby" to give me more storage. Unfortunately, a plumbing problem forced me to remove it and I never got around to putting it back. Anyway, I did the main room in 8 months, then I did the bedroom, which took another 5 months. It takes so long because my lungs don't work so well and I can only do physical stuff for short periods of time. I have to pace myself, but I've learned to deal with it and can do a lot of things as long as there's no rush. Here are some photos of the original bathroom.
