A great review of the project we just finished. It is always a joy to be appreciated for our work. Thanks.
I just read through this special issue from Fine home building and this one is a good one. To be honest these days most people are trying to get the most from their remodeling budget. This issue has some projects and ideas that look great are built of quality materials and are on budget. An issue well worth it.
The project is all together. There were a lot of custom and unique pieces to put together this room. The glass for the walk in shower is 3/8 inch thick and is mounted on chrome hinges and clips. The sink vanity is an old dresser with attached mirror. It just fit in the sloping ceiling. It adds a bit of character and warmth to the room.
The home owner decorated the room with antique mirrors that make the small space feel bigger and add a unique charm. From planning to finish this was one of our favorite bathroom remodels.
The tile work is done for the shower. The white subway tile is a classic choice with a light grey grout it will keep this shower alcove bright. The shower floor is a 1″ hex tile in carrara marble. The shape of the 1″ hex tile is a good fit to the 1920 era of the house. A standard bathroom floor from the 1020’s would be a white porcelain hex tile.The marble may not have been a choice available in Portland at that time, the material looks great in this bathroom.
There is a lot of variation in this natural material. The marble is quarried in Italy, the colors in the marble can very from bright white, to greys and some yellow. We had a few days wait to get the color marble that we wanted in the quantity we needed. We wanted to use the sample on the right for this project.
