my little brother is awesome + bathroom redesign

Those of you who are the “older” siblings will understand this. Isn’t it strange when your younger siblings get older and become really pretty awesome? I mean, they probably were cute when they were little. And, then they were annoying at some point (or maybe it was really just you). And, then, if you’re lucky, they become awesome and your good friends.

Well, recently I’ve had the fun of seeing my younger siblings become awesome. And, while  I could talk about multiple siblings, today we’re talking about my architect brother. Here we are at my wedding.

Well, a little bragging is in order. He recently graduated with a degree in architecture. Go brother!

When he came to visit a few months ago, we showed him our master bathroom and told him a few of our plans to demo it and start from scratch. And, he offered to draw up some sketches and designs for us! How awesome is that?!?!

Look how cool his sketches are of our existing bathroom.

And, of course, for reference here is the actual bathroom.


It definitely needs help.

But, (drumroll please) here are a few of his designs of what it could look like in the future!

Amazing, right?

We don’t know exactly how things will end up in the future. We might change these plans as well as we gather more details and figure out what we want to do. But isn’t it amazing how much different the bathroom looks? How much bigger the bathroom looks?!

It’s encouraging to see a drawing that illustrates what we thought – that this bathroom can totally rock if it’s redone. That it doesn’t always have to look like a coffin! It’s so encouraging. And so exciting to look forward to the day when we can do that. Just gotta save up some cash first!
