Tool Man

Well, today the wife dropped the latest bombshell. She wants to put a guest bathroom downstairs, with the thought that we’ll be making the downstairs into an mother-in-law apartment sometime over the next few years. The downstairs runs along the entire length of the house, so there is plenty of room down there to buildout a couple of rooms for sleeping and watching TV, and if we put in a full bathroom we can plug into that plumbing and put in a tiny kitchen along the shared wall.

The perfect spot for a bathroom is adjacent to the laundry room. We can put in a walk-in tub, a toilet and still have room for a nice sink and vanity. I told the wife to start looking at fixtures and pick out the things she wants so I can get an idea of the prices and we’ll work up a budget for the remodeling project.
