Rita!! I think we are living parallel lives right now! As we have gutted our bathroom too - first the kitchen, now the bathroom. Although I can't really call ours a master bathroom because it t is the only bathroom on the floor with the three bedrooms and it looks to be about a quarter of the size of your bathroom! You have a much bigger job ahead of you than we do!! I can't wait to see how it turns out!

Hey Rita, Thanks for stopping by - so I had to see what you were doing to your kitchen!! Funny how things start and just mushroom into a whole lot more!!! You have a nice space to work with and that panty is to die for - so I can see why you don't want to do a full gut - not needed. I will be excited to see your updates and see how it all comes together - keep us all posted. Our kitchen took about 4 months to complete - but it was a total gut. I acted as the general contractor - which wasn't so hard - just a million phone calls to contractors and getting estimates - I had two trades that did some work for me and were to comeback and complete the job after several other steps where done - but it took 5 or 6 phone calls to them both before they even called me back. That was frustrating. Other than that - I enjoyed the process. I actually liked looking at 15 different stoves or backsplashes and about 30 different flooring choices before we finally settled on what we wanted!! So be ready to look at a lot of choices and prices to make sure you get what will be satisfied with once you are finished - because I kept thinking - I will have to live with this choice now for another 15-20 years!
