I’m thrilled with the recent completion of an in-law apartment on Cape Cod. I give thanks to Dain Stephens Design and Construction who did all of the demolition and construction. The original space was awkward with the slanted ceiling and an oversized bathroom.
I reduced the size of the bathroom and modernized the design. Using large tiles and floor to ceiling glass, the small bathroom feels spacious and makes the most of the natural light. The tiling was done by Ideal Flooring using the very awesome Schluter System to waterproof the walls and floor so my vision of a curb-less shower would work. I really think this helps to open up the space.
All the kitchen cabinets, counter space and desk area were tucked under the slanted ceiling to make that area functional without worrying about the loss of headroom.
This small space required a lot of downsizing. The kitchenette contains a 24″ convection/conventional oven, a two burner cooktop and refrigerator and freezer drawers. The desk area is tagged on to the end of the cabinet run at counter height for a uniform line along the wall.
The typical standard closets were torn out to open up the room and allow more wall space for art.
