Bathroom shops

We have been talking about building a master bathroom in my house and a new bathroom that will be the main bathroom for the hallway. We currently have only 1 full bath on the 2nd floor and a full bath downstairs on the main level.
We have had several estimates, designs, and ideas. My kids have met several new people who have come to take a look.
The other day we were at my in-laws and my three year old daughter Kayla had to go to the bathroom. I told her she could choose from 1 of the 3 bathrooms (they have 2 1/2 baths).

Kayla looked at me with a calculated face and said, "they have three bathrooms but our house only has two. That's why we needa get a new bathroom."

It was so adorably cute especially if you know her and she made it sound so simple! It's not like I just buy it from the shop and plop it into place. Wait till she discovers what it entails.
If only it could be that easy! I'm excited but having nightmares about picking out the detailing and designing it!
Wish me luck :)


  1. Oy vey, we desperately need to renovate all of our bathrooms.

    Master bath: All laminate peeled off (defective glue from previous installation), most of the faucets not working, only 1 cold faucet on the sinks is barely working. At least the shower still works. Toilet often needs to be flushed 2 or 3 times.

    Kids bath: Also all laminate peeled off (same defective glue). Caulk issues by tub. Paint on walls peeling. Exhaust vent on last legs. Toilet also has various issues.

    Other bath: Shower (which was added 2 owners ago) never worked since the day we moved in (no cold water supply, only hot water), and has never been used by us.

    I gotta say that the previous renovation done two owners ago was terrible and almost all went bad.

  2. 5 words: We live in South Florida :-)

  3. oy, i think it is time to find a plumber in south florida! and also time to start saving up for the changes.

  4. Oy squared (nope, to the fifth). Tuition payments started!


Come again!
