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.

All open, accessible walls in the remodel used an expanding insulating soy based foam that is trimmed flush with the studs. This type of insulation fills up every irregular space in the old framing and at this time is considered the most effective method of sealing up a drafty old house.
