At Jason Boutwell Construction, we take immense pride in transforming spaces to meet the unique needs and desires of our clients. One such remarkable project was the age-in-place bathroom remodel for our client, Shirley, and her husband.

Challenges and Goals

Shirley and her husband envisioned a bathroom where they could comfortably age in place, enjoying both functionality and luxury. Their goals were clear:

Expanded Shower with Steam Sauna: The couple desired a spacious, accessible shower area with the added luxury of a steam sauna. They wanted a relaxing retreat within their own home.

Large Soaking Tub: A deep, inviting soaking tub was on their wish list—a place to unwind and soak away the stresses of the day.

Bidet Toilet: To enhance comfort and convenience, a bidet toilet was a must.

Towel Warming Rack: For added comfort, the clients wanted a towel warming rack to step out of the shower to warm, fluffy towels.

Custom Vanity: The husband required a custom-built vanity, 40 inches tall, to ensure his comfort during daily routines.
