Okay, here are our renovation plans. The first set is the exisiting space. Our master bedroom is at the very top. The new space takes over an adjacent bedroom (the nursery) and makes it into a bathroom and master closet. We had been planning to do this project for the last year, so it is by no means a radical grieving decision. There will be room for future babies if needed. I will probably never be able to let them sleep in their own rooms anyway!
Now starts the design phase. We have to pick out flooring, bathtub, sinks, faucets, colors, even a toilet! Who knew that could be such a big decision. We are going to have to brick in some existing windows and create new ones. That might sway our painting decision if we can't get the new brick to match the old brick outside. So I will take your votes into account, but please don't be mad if we have to paint the brick. Take a look at the plans and let us know what you think.
