The first project we took on after purchasing our place was to renovate the very small bathroom. This bathroom is 8 feet by 5 feet. Tiny. At the time we moved in the only shower was in the basement. (More on that later.)
What these photos do not accurately capture is the smell. Oh boy, the smell. The door jamb was about 5 1/2 feet high, which posed some challenges for Handy Husband. A common theme throughout this tiny house; it was well suited for tiny occupants. Other fun features of this space included an original exterior window sided over on the outside of the house and covered with some wood paneling on the inside.
So we dove right in, and what we found… well it could have been worse. Maybe?
Here is where things got really gross. There was so much rodent poison and dog food stockpiled by mice in the walls. It was icky. But we took the room down to the studs and replaced EVERYTHING.
It is still very small, but we were able to brighten up the room by adding a block window and utilizing a glass panel for the shower to let in as much light as possible. The decision to use white subway tile and white hexagon tile on the floor also helped brighten up the tight space. We use a galvanized tub to bathe the babes and it works out pretty well. There is a small storage shelf built into the wall above the toilet. I reused a neat old medicine cabinet over the sink. I am very happy with the outcome.
