This is a walk-through bathroom between the front room and the dining room.  

We are making it into a hallway with a butlers pantry.

5/23/04- The window has been sided over.  This tub will be gone and will be a butler's pantry... someday!

View to the dining room...

6/5/04- In the process of yanking out the small closet and tub where the Butler's Pantry will be, Jeff uncovered a HUGE squirrel nest.  Yes, there were squirrels living under the tub.  Unbelievable!

6/12/04-- The cast iron tub is gone-- whew!

7/19/04-- The Butler's Pantry is in!!


Thanks to Mark and Charles, the downstairs bath has been gutted!  This is the view straight through the kitchen to the Butler's Pantry.  The new door to the bathroom will be on the other side of that pipe!


8/21/08-- Although the wall has been up since we finished the bathroom, it has been unfinished for four years.  Now, we have actual wallboards up in the Butler's Pantry area!  It has always really bugged me for that little hallway to look so horrible for the past 4 years, but it has just been very low on the priority list. Now, it has a WALL! We are contemplating using that space as our test bed for learning to use the textured paintable wallpaper before attempting it on the living room ceiling. With the wall, the wallpaper, and the antique tin backsplash put in (which wouldn't be that hard to do), I just may pass out from shock!
