|My Clean Plate|
After a day of design, laundry and an emergency trip out to assist a client suffering with indecision, my plate is clean. Follow up appointments have been made and Tuesday and Wednesday are looking like good studio days. I am looking forward to them.
This master bath was the biggest challenge of the projects that suddenly came in. The client wanted a two person shower, a two person vanity and sit-down make up station. The existing cantilevered cathedral ceiling was/is the problem.
It's cathedral-- and also not--and has a circular window up at the peak that makes "on center" with the vanity design preference she cut from a magazine impossible. What do you do? Tell her she can't have it? No. You ignore the window, build a soffit, under it, connecting the lower ceiling portions of the room and go from there. You think she'll like it? I have no idea. Next Friday, we'll see.
What you see here is the floor plan and the elevation of the vanity wall with a cross section of the requested two person shower with a seat, which is way too large and will have cold spots while she's in it--and when she gets out of it. There's no place for a venting/heat fan near the shower, because that's where the ceiling goes way up and the warm air with it. After twenty seven years of experience, the estimated cost will be close to fifty thousand dollars, a very pretty penny. Next Friday, we'll see just how pretty (or ugly) this penny is. "God protect me from what I wish for" applies here.
WHAT APPLIES HERE?
While the rest of the trees around my house are doing this:
|Autumn Red and gold among the greens.|
My Japanese Dogwood is doing this:
|It flowered in late May/early June like it should. And it's flowering again now in October|
with the temps in the forties like it shouldn't. Very odd.
