The shower curtains on the porch need to go. I am not trying for it, but it looks like a quaint little house. I enlarged it to get a really good look, and it looks like it would only be suitable for a small family. It is so difficult to see what a house is really like without seeing the inside. I am unfamiliar with the HGTV homes, but the concept interests me. Thanks for the question.
There are 3 major limitations which really make size matter in bathroom renovation: the overall size of the bathroom (usually the smallest room in the house), the location of existing plumbing pipes and electrical wiring and the typical standard dimensions of bathroom fixtures. Therefore make sure you have the correct measurements and specifications when you go to the store. More frustrating than trying to shop without measurements is to end up purchasing stuff that doesn’t fit.
If the bathroom has a traditional bathtub, purchase a transfer bench. Disabled bathrooms often use these benches. They’re sturdy, with four legs. Two of the legs rest in the bathtub, and the other two legs sit outside the tub so that the bench straddles the ledge of the tub. This way, the elder can sit on the bench and transfer his body into the tub without having to actually step over the tub ledge.
I think I would like one. My husband and I talked about building a Quonset hut home before we bought the damned” underground house. I mean that literally because the house has to be damned. Anyway, I’m curious about the insulation. I suppose one would insulate with the amount needed for the area and then wall over it like in a conventional house. Thanks for the information. Oh, the ugly one, the folks were just trying to beautify a plain Jane the best way they could. Living in an ugly home myself, I sympathize.
Doors/drawer fronts: Does the line offer the level of door selection you may need? Do you require a special color? Maybe even unfinished where you can finish it yourself? Chinese imported cabinets are rigid in this area, so look at a domestic line like Conestoga’s if you are going to require unique doors or want a special door overlay like full overlay or inset.
