We’re quite a few steps (read: all of the steps) away from being able to do finish work on our basement, but it hasn’t stopped me from dreaming about the design plan! In case you’re new around here: we’re doing a full gut and remodel of our basement, including adding two bedrooms, a bathroom, a laundry room, living
Before we tore it apart, our hallway bathroom had a fairly good-sized closet. We didn’t necessarily need all that closet space, but we did need a bigger bathroom!
