A bathroom just doesn’t offer the same level of privacy and comfort when it’s also part of the kitchen, for obvious reasons! It was time to build a Tremendous Wall and a door to separate the bathroom from the kitchen.
Luckily, Dad was on the case and came up with a great design. Have I mentioned he’s kind of a construction jedi? Here’s his concept sketch:
Basically, this was going to be a plywood wall notched out to fit perfectly around the loft support beams with a sliding door to access the bathroom.
Dad cut the first wall piece using a cardboard template.
The first piece goes in!
The shower and bathtub will go right where Dad’s standing in this photo:
This photo shows my closet at the front end of the loft (this is where I’ll keep all my clothes) with the bathroom in the background, and the newly-defined kitchen on the right side:
A closer view of the kitchen wall:
Looking into the bathroom:

And one more photo looking into the kitchen and bathroom, now divided by a Tremendous Wall!
I couldn’t be more pleased with how things are shaping up! Stay tuned for pictures of the wall and ceiling insulation, and interior paneling!
