House Tour - Part 2

I've already shown you the first floor of our house, now it's time for the second floor.

When I last left you, I showed you the stairs that lead up to the second floor.


Before I show you what the actual upstairs looks like, I will show you the floor plan.  The entire second floor of our house is the Master Bedroom.  It's one huge suite, totaling over 900 square feet.  It's amazing, despite that it needs some basic work to make it our own and fit our needs.    





Now, once you go up the stairs and turn left (that's the only way you can go), you enter in a hallway, and the door on the left leads into the master closet.  The closet is massive. One entire wall is for hanging clothes, and the other side has built-in shelves and drawers.  Additionally, the shelves are doors, and these open to reveal hidden storage space for seasonal clothing. There are other hanging rods through the doors and shelving space.  The little step that you see in the picture below can be moved to the opening to help you in, since the doors open just above the drawers that you see on the left side.



Also, you'll notice in the floor plan above that there is also loft storage.  There is a staircase that flips down along side of the built-in shelves in the closet, and that leads up to additional loft storage and attic acces.  It's really neat, and would be a little kid's dream place for hide-and-seek.

Now, when you come out of the closet and turn left, this is what you see:


This is the Master Bedroom.  There is a huge eyebrow window in the middle of the wall, and that's actually where we have our bed setup, and on the right is a full size mirror, attached to the wall, like the one downstairs above the fireplace.  On the left is another wood-burning fireplace, with a marble tile surround.  


If you turn to the right, you see that there's actually a lot of space for extra furniture over where that large mirror is.  We currently have a futon there, which really is just a giant cat bed at this point, and then on the right, you can see the french doors that lead into the bathroom.  We'll get there in a minute.



On the other side, exactly opposite of the fireplace, there is a blank wall that has TV hookups, so that's where we have our TV and our recliners, in case we don't want to watch from bed.  And again, a little better view of the french doors.  





When you walk through the french doors, which are on that angled wall closest to the hallway, you are first greeted by a massive tub. But it's not just a jacuzzi tub. It's a hot tub. Like the kind you would normally have outside on the deck. The kind that the water doesn't drain from and you treat with chlorine.  Yep, whoever renovated this bathroom wanted a legit hot tub. And you know what? I'm fine with that.  I just can't wait to use it. It needed some seriously cleaning, which required draining bailing out all the water, so we haven't gotten to enjoy it quite yet, but hopefully this spring it will finally be up and running.




Also, the door that you see on the right of the first hot tub picture is a closet, which if you notice in the floor plan has two doors, which means that it opens on that side, and opens on the opposite side too, which is actually right where the toilet and the shower are.  

Directly across from the hot tub is the sink, equipped with it's own massive mirror and obnoxious lighting.  There is a little vanity that is part of the countertops in this bathroom, but only one sink, so we plan to install a second one.  Also, as you may have seen a thousand times on Pinterest, we're going to frame the mirror to give it a more customized look.  And those lights? As awesome as they are for putting on makeup, they're pretty ugly, so that will be changed at some point too.


Behind where this last picture was taken is a small room that has a stand-up shower and the toilet.  The shower is your typical fiberglass insert with chrome and glass doors, so we're going to replace that with a tile shower, and actually make it a little bigger, too. The toilet is across from the shower, but it's your normal toilet, so I don't think that it requires a picture, right? ;)


So, that's our Master Bedroom. What do you think? Pretty amazing isn't it?  One of the massive selling points of this house, that's for sure!
