one down

You may remember from my previous post about the horror movie shower stall in our low ceiling basement and that we only had a tub for bathing. Well, we still have the tub, but we had a plumber in the other day and had him install a new spout with a exterior diverter for a hand held shower head. Yeah!
before . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . after (notice shower head and new curtain and rod)
we had to make the curtain rod ourselves out of pvc pipe. the end of the tub is just exposed to the rest of the wall or surround to attach a traditional shower rod to. so, a couple of pvc pipes, a couple of pipe caps, curtain hooks from a thrift store, and voila! shower!

I can now shower standing up…well, mostly standing up. The tub is along an exterior wall that is also the roof line. So we have a nice angled wall in the tub area. See, I can stand…almost.

of course, wayne has it a little rougher. it's a little hard to tell, but the wall is really close to his head.

So, one project down, many more to go.
Next up, installing main floor shower (one big enough to stand up straight in!). Our next few large projects are going to be funded with our tax rebate…horray first time home buyers credit!
