    Lookit! All that bare framing is now an actual room! There are two built-ins...one for each of us....then a small section with just one high rod on which to hang my dresses and gowns etc., double closet rods with a total 17 feet of hanging space, and extra deep shelves over the top rod. It's a small space, but we've designed it and he's built it to take advantage of every single inch!" As it stands right now, it gives me several feet more hanging space than I currently have and WAY more shelf space between the built ins and the shelves over the top rod! He also installed two can lights so that it's brightly lit in there but they're on a dimmer just in case. He put a vent in there too, because one wall of the closet sits on an outside wall so it will get a bit chilly in there in the winter time. Sliding door so that the door swing doesn't take up any needed space.

    This is inside the closet looking out. Middle of the pic is the beginning of one of the built ins. That one will have both shelves and several drawers. That upright to the right is the wall of the second one, which will just be shelves, at my request. Floor to ceiling both of them, to allow for maximum storage....out of season things on the high shelves, daily use stuff at a more comfortable height. We bought a very lightweight two step step stool to keep in the closet for ease of access to the high shelving.

    It turned out really well, Gail, thanks! It's small but mighty!! It fits all our stuff but still with some room to spare! I'm pretty tickled! I'll take some pics soon so you can see the result!

    Before we'd started to put much in the closet so you can get some sense of the way he designed it, a shot of Ron being pretty damn proud of those drawers he built, and then when it's full. It's impossible to take a decent shot of the whole closet because there's no way to get the right angle in the space. We are really pleased with the result!

    On to the demolition of the old closet and old master bathroom, and forging ahead on the buildout of the new bathroom!!

    @Ronni sorry I was unable to see your update but Ron's done a nice job and plenty of room, it needs it with the amount of clothes ;) I laugh this end as he carries such a cheeky grin :like:

    We've been working on the bathroom now that the interior of the closet is done. Busted our butts most of the weekend a couple weekends ago, in between various other commitments but finally finished the demolition of the old closet and got the mess cleaned up enough to get the shower stall put in place. And lemme tell you that was a feat!!

    Demolishing the old closet

    I thought it was impossible to get a 34” shower through a 32” door opening, but my sweet man proved me wrong. That was the shower stall he wanted, and by God that was the shower stall he was going to have!! So he just ripped out part of the door! He is definitely solution oriented...not a defeatist at all!

    After he got the shower stall through the door and installed, he worked on the framing Then we were stalled for about 10 days waiting for the plumber to come in and run some lines. Finally got that taken care of yesterday. Today Ron will be putting up sheet rock to start creating actual walls instead of just the framing, running some electrical, and creating a drop ceiling for over the shower.

    Shower entrance. It will be a sliding door like in the closet, to save space.

    Closet on left, bathroom on right. The wall where the jewelry is hanging is the existing bathroom which will be demolished once the new bathroom is done.

    Impossible to get a pic of the shower stall because I can't get far enough away lol. But you get the idea. IMG_2715.JPG

    Realized I haven’t updated this thread in a while. We finished the bathroom several weeks ago

    And this weekend’s project was finishing the master bedroom. White oak flooring, Casual Khaki paint, new fan. Kicked our butts, we’re too old for this crap! :rofl: But we’re happy with the result!
