Accessible One Day Bath Transformation in Charming Annapolis Waterfront Home

When this Annapolis homeowner decided to move back into her family home to age-in-place, she realized there was a lot of work to be done, starting with the safety and cleanliness of her main bathroom.

This picturesque Annapolis waterfront property has been in the family for over 100 years, so one can imagine how much wear and tear it has weathered. From generations of family members living in the house – at one point with seven people all using the same hall bathroom – the charming old home needed some TLC. The homeowner decided it was the right time to restore function and beauty, starting with a space used every day – the bathroom.

The homeowner chose Brothers’ One Day Bath Transformation because, while lots of areas needed work, the wet space needed it most urgently. The tub was stained with the potential for mold growth, and the sides needed to be reconfigured for the homeowner to feel comfortable using it. In fact, the bathroom was in such poor shape that the homeowner requested we not use her name in this article – which of course we have honored. But we believe no one should need to be embarrassed by their bathroom, so Brothers’ expert tradespeople swung into action.

By removing the tub and replacing it with a walk-in shower customized with grab bars and a built-in seat, not only is the space revitalized, but it is also much safer. Additionally, with so many projects to complete around the house, the homeowner was pleased to have this project done in such a short time frame so she could start living comfortably in the home while she oversees the rest of the renovations.

Project Hurdles
  • The master bathroom is far too small to be accessible, and after consultation, the homeowner found she would not be able to extend the footprint.
  • There was a concern that mold may be living under the tub.
  • The tub was stained beyond repair, and the homeowner was tired of maintaining it.
  • The bathroom was not accessible for the homeowner to age-in-place.
