Interior Design for Family

Every time we were visiting with my father-in-law l would marvel at the size of the guest bathroom and could imagine the redesign of it from one room into two. There was potential for a smaller more modern guest bathroom plus additional en-suite for the master. So dad asked me to set to work on the design and planning. Not so easy as l had a solid concrete floor throughout to work with.
I sent down a booklet with a design proposal and within hours he was on the phone with the contractors!
Arghh. Designing for family is always a worry ~ you just want it all to work out well and hope they love the result.
The story so far:
• The original bathroom- photo taken Sat 13 May

• The plans – March 06- The larger perspectives had lighting effects and were rendered.

Slight change of direction when builder saw plans~ we were informed that the toilet piping had to be taken up into the roof space rather than along the extra cavity wall- Good news because it shaved a bit for the budget!

•First day of refurbishment ~ Today 1st June 06

Email from dad today: "All this without Semtex, we have changed our minds and want it restored. House full of dust and grit. Henry is a gem. Wall cutting on Friday.
Whose idea was this? !!"

Is there time to run? !!
