Shirley and Frank live with their daughter and son-in-law, Melissa and Sam.

The finished project is a beautiful, functional bathroom that will meet any of Frank and Shirley’s future accessibility needs, without sacrificing style for function.

Their remodel involved removing a window within the shower area that was in poor condition due to the wood casing and windowsill being damaged by moisture. Masonry on the home’s existing brick exterior was completed by matching the existing brick as closely as possible.

To help with future accessibility needs we changed the vanity depth from 21” to 18.” With future accessibility in mind, we also increased the doorway from a 28” opening to a 36” opening. This required us to move the light switch into the hallway which will also allow for easier access while in a wheelchair.

We replaced their cast iron tub with a shower base for ease of access. In the shower, we installed three grab bars for safety purposes. We also installed a hand-held shower to help with bathing should either of the homeowners become wheelchair bound in the future.

Moisture-resistant drywall was installed to provide maximum moisture protection. We removed an unnecessary half-wall that was between the existing vanity and toilet to open up the space for future accessibility needs. We also added a fan/light combination exhaust fan to help with moisture control and lighting.

Remodeling Job Description:

These homeowners spend a large majority of the week caring for their two great-grand-children, Carter and Max. Neither of the brothers is in school yet and, as young boys often do, they are always finding ways to get dirty. Unfortunately, when it came to tub-time, the Marjorie and Al’s miniature cast iron tub was far from adequate – too small and too pink for the boys! Their need for a larger tub led to the decision that it was time to update their entire bathroom.

Their existing bathtub was a unique 48”x48” cast iron tub with only a 12” deep triangular basin. There just wasn’t enough room for the grandchildren to take their baths! Luckily, we were able to help. By utilizing the depth of a closet from the adjacent room, we were able to relocate their linen shelves to make way for a larger tub.

We also installed a more accessible, taller vanity and toilet option. The homeowners loved the look of the solid surface, low maintenance vanity top and Cape-Cod wainscoting which was used to eliminate the blue mud-set tile covering the bathroom walls. Carter and Max are thrilled about their new tub!
