Bathroom Remodel

The "Jack and Jill" bathroom in this house was given a new operable skylight in 1989, but was not remodeled until recently (2007).
It features a bright day-lit space, an exposed brick chimney, a new shower, a dual flush water-conserving toilet, a new vanity and sink, tiled hydronic radiant heated floors and reworked original redwood woodwork - stripped of the old lead-based paint, sanded and hand rubbed with a natural Tung oil finish.

Flared in 4 directions for maximum effect, the side walls of the well are "warped planes" - a huge challenge for the framer. Plywood was used for the walls of the lightwell, then primed and skimmed out with gypsum wallboard and taping compound.
