Exposed Brick in New Bathroom?

The Snapdragon Inn

The latest demo revealed an interesting opportunity to further expose some of the history of the home in our new designs for the inn. We removed the lathe and plaster in the corner of one of the areas being converted into a bathroom. Behind the dust and horse hair plaster we found the brick and masonry work from the chimney of the fireplace in an adjoining room. We also exposed the brick wall as shown below. This corner is where the new toilet for this bathroom will be fitted.

Upon closer inspection, the plumb line from the original chimney construction (usually marked with a fastened string) was still in place. This is a cool little discovery as it further illuminates the construction details and methods in use at the time the brick work was being completed.

We are looking at ways to keep the brick exposed as the "steps" could make for an interesting bathroom shelving feature. We may be able to top them with wood shelving for a more finished look or clean up the brick and frame in drywall to have an interesting architectural element in the bathroom. Please send along ideas or thoughts on this cool little find!
