Pictures of our main level bath have been hard to take. It's not a huge room, but it is also very awkward to try to get a lot of it in. I had originally wanted to use furniture as vanities. I searched and searched, but did not really find just the right thing. I had been watching this one for my main level bathroom. It stays with the mission style cabinets that we used in the kitchen on this level, and more of a traditional feel for this level of our home. Where the basement is much more rustic old west, this will still be rustic, but also classic. This will not be the bathroom Dan and I will call our master bath for now though. This will serve as guest bath room, for my folks, who live in Branson, but visit frequently, for kids or other family and for friends who want to stay with us for a visit.
This bathroom will hopefully wait for a good long while before we have to call this our permanent master bath. I know many of you have watched your parents and other family have to sell their dream home because the did not have facilities to use on a main level. Our goal with this home, was to build it so that if we needed to be on one level, we could. So, this is my growing old, and decrepit bathroom. But I am excited to have it, and love how it has turned out.
It is though absolutely perfect in this room, and I cannot wait to use it.

We also needed to enclose the covered patio ceiling. We had had a nest of baby robins on our porch before we started, but Dan had checked before starting this project and there was no sign of them left, until, we got closer to closing in the porch and we found a new next of robins. Dan told me that if he took them out, they would get eaten by a predator, so he was thinking he would have to kill them himself, but he came up with an idea to help save my little sweeties, So he fashioned a new house for them.
Here is the house he made for them.
