This room borders the kitchen described above, and was also quite an extensive renovation. The first picture shown illustrates how new work can be designed to make future maintenance less costly. The shower surround is mounted over the sheetrock with removable trim and the entire window assembly, namely the jams, casings, sill and apron, all come off in one piece. This allows the surround to be removed or replaced at some time in the future, from what is a very tight spot, with no demolition. The second photo illustrates economy of space and labor. The laundry area was built into the old bathtub/shower alcove without demolishing the plumbing stub wall. This facilitated plumbing for the washer, and kept the existing sink area and plumbing intact.
