A sigh of relief . . .

Just a quick update on the restroom addition at the church.  There are still a few odds and ends to complete, but the new ladies' restroom is now functioning and in use.  We still need to install the hot water heater, counter top and faucets in the men's restroom, as well as the door trim and some painting, but we are nearly finished! 

Below are a few pictures of the ladies' restroom.

The door on the right is a sliding pocket door.  It is the handicap stall; a 3 foot door to accommodate a wheel chair and does not swing wide into the main room.

There is a 6 gallon, "point of use" hot water heater under the counter that gives instant hot water.  Also, an open cabinet on one end to facilitate a wheel chair.

All of the door swinging directions were considered with the most privacy possible.

There is a 3 foot privacy wall that protects the mirror and sink area.

The individual stalls are not made with hanging dividers, but are fully enclosed rooms.
This project has taken far more time than I anticipated or than any of us wanted to spend.  However, we would have been unable to afford the addition if we had hired a contractor to do it.

I'll post pictures of the men's restroom and hallway when completed in a few weeks.  I'm taking a week off from the construction part of things; I have a class that I need to finish by the end of the week.
