Hi Everyone, I was just curious if anyone had made any last minute majorish changes. They are plaster boarding the inside of our house. My wife came into the master bedroom and hated it. TBH she is right. What happened was that in the original design the master en suite was a bit tight for what we wanted to get in there, so I asked the architect to make it wider. That got us more space in the en suite but moved the wall quite close to where the bed will go. When the walls started to go up it started to look tight and the room look lop sided. I think what accentuated this is that the room has a vaulted ceiling so the en suite wall got taller by moving it into the room an now looms over the bed. Anyway it is better to fix it now than later so we are moving the ensuite into the dressing room which is a much larger area and shrinking the en suite to be the new dressing room. Probably a few thousand in wasted stud work and plasterboard but I think it is the right thing to do. Luckily there is pipework in place so that the change can be made. I kept looking at the plans and wondering about doing it, wish I had just bit the bullet earlier. To some extent I didn't want to upset the architect. He was fine about it, he said he hadn't liked moving the wall, but the trouble was that the en suite was too small without that. Perhaps the moral is, if you don't feel right about something and can change it then change it as soon as possible.
