Since we moved the toilet in the master bathroom, we also had to make room for the toilet plumbing below the master bathroom.
I know I know… You’re thinking, “Why would you ever lower a ceiling???”
We had to. And luckily, the downstairs bathroom is just below the upstairs one. Not only that, but the downstairs bathroom already had some random low ceilings for the old plumbing locations. So we just added to it to make it all more unified. Photos to explain below.
You can see that I had to rip away the drywall and then screw some new studs into the existing studs in order to frame the new ceiling.
So what do you think? (we love comments). Were we crazy to create even more low ceilings in the house? I think it’s crazy. However, there was no better way of doing it (in order to make room for the plumbing since we moved everything around in the master bathroom above). And it turned out pretty well in the end.
