Charm and angles in a bathroom renovation
Written by: Peg Ashbrock
The cottage wasn’t their first home in German Village, a neighborhood better known for its Italianate and Victorian abodes. It was Ron and Barb Hagan’s second home in the village after downsizing from a traditional four-bedroom suburban residence that had been home as they raised their two daughters. Their first try at a cottage home in the historic neighborhood was too small; at 1,500 square feet they eventually decided it just wasn’t working. This house, the second cottage they bought in the neighborhood and a bit larger, was just right.
After much debate, the owners decided to tweak a few things in their home, one of which was the master bath. Village renovating restrictions only applied to external changes; anything inside was fair game as long as the footprint remained the same. So it became that the owners worked with Todd Schmidt of Renovations Unlimited and architect Gary Alexander to craft the perfect master bath.
