Photos from the master bathroom portion of my whole house remodel.

The old bath was "white" cabinetry and outdated 1995 style. We loved the house because of the lake view and its location, so we ended up moving the laundry room from downstairs to the upper level, expanding the master bath, taking over an adjacent bedroom for a master closet (and to provide a little extra room and comfort in the guest bath). The laundry room is now near the master bath (no photos). Here are some photos of the project. Our home was part of the 1st NARIAtlanta Tour of Homes.
Back of house before remodel. Master Bedroom is the 3 windows on right, the bedroom that was taken over is the 2 windows near the dish and the master bath window is in the middle (not opaque-apparently a bird hit it pretty hard)
Old master bath. Whirlpool tub was on the left as you enter from the Master bedroom. The shower door is on the right
Love those white sinks and cabinets with the carpeted floor.
There is the smashed window and the shower. Actually the view is great when not broken. Out to the lake.
Old master closet. I hate those wire shelves!
The master toilet. Good news at least was that it was a separate "room" with a door.
Finaly getting to it. ON the right, the new Master bedroom windows, on the far left, the bedroom windows are gone and the new closet window is in.
This is the 1st floor - you can see we almost gutted the entire floor. We added to the beams supporting the second floor to provide support for the new master bath floor to stop movement. Tile can be heavy
The fun of some new home builders. The original plumber cut a big hole in the engineered center beam of the home and destroyed the beam integrity. Good thing we caught it and added the steel for support.
The Master bath being framed. The Master bedroom is on the left. The old window has been replaced with plywood and new window framed. Because we were putting plumbing in the "outer" wall, we built some extra width to insulate
New closet drywalled
New tile floor
Closet door is on the far left. Middle space is for the smaller sink area and the toilet in the room on the right.
The pocket door from bedroom to bath is on the right. A normal swing door swinging to the toilet would block the switches, if we swung it the other way it would have formed a "hall" and blocked light. The pocket door was the answer.
Finally some completed photos - Pro shots from the tour. The bigger sink, the skylight above, the new window with some added privacy etching but no need for shades. The etching, trees and the lake give privacy and distance
The new shower as viewed from the new closet.
Another pro shot from the smaller of the 2 sinks.
Same area from the pocket door
A little closer and the closet is on the right
From the shower. You can see the small sink area now.
Okay, this got out of order...but the shower and new window in progress.
The window up close. The design is hard to see but resembles waves with a symbolic "whale-like" cloud. And you can see the trees provide a lot of privacy too.
The pocket door in action
The ceiling light. It is a cathedral ceiling and the light picks up the "wave" theme. We had a flat area built at the peak of the roof line to allow the light fixture to hang "flat". Better than tryingg to find a light that could attach on a slope
Back of the house after the remodel.... what a change!
There was a slight miscalculation with the location of the sink in the marble and the AXOR fixtures. The stone company not only made it right but they offered a matching marble sink as an upgrade (no the paint can was temporary while expoxy dried).
Second sink area with the marble sink and countertops.
