If You Give an Architect a Picture

I promised you a story, so here it is.  Has everybody read If You Give a Mouse a Cookie or If You Give a Moose a Muffin or any other books in the series?  I’m thinking of adding to the series with my very own book, If You Give an Architect a Picture.

It all started with a discussion of what kind of tub to put in the master bathroom.  I shared this inspiration picture with Justeen:



And the next thing I knew, this:


became this:


which ended up looking like this:


As I mentioned before, it balances the dining room bump out on the other side of the porch:


I like it!

Then, when I posted this picture of dear daughter’s bathroom and mentioned eliminating the window,


the creative juiced began flowing again, and this:


became this:


which lets us keep the window without the worry of water from the shower.  It also makes creative use of the space under the eaves.  After all how tall does the ceiling over your bathroom sink need to be?


Here’s the outside view with the roof of the side porch being framed out.  It will be great to get a little light into that bathroom.

Tomorrow, the architects, Denise and Justeen are coming out to visit and help us select the brick.  I’m excited and a little scared.  After all, if you give an architect a picture and they suggest changes, what happens when they come for a site visit?

Stay tuned!

  1. Bravo (as long as the shower take can see out of the window). Maybe a transparent shower curtain? Everything at our place is about mice and cookie consequences.
