Bathroom #3

It's hard to believe that we've actually built two bathrooms at the farm at this point. The posts on the first one can be found here and here. Bathrooms are always my favorite part of the house for so many reasons. A: They are so intricate and you pack so much into such a small space. They really are the most complex room in the house (well, maybe that and the kitchen) B: They are fun to create and lay out C: Face it - sitting on the pot and showering are two of life's leisures and you should enjoy them D: Do you need more reasons?

Here are some pictures of the different stages...

The tile and sink were all products of the Habitat for Humanity ReStore here in San Diego. The medicine cabinet (which you can't see) and the light were also salvage products from Jeremy's uncle in Arizona. The toilet, tub and faucets were the only things that were new. The toilet is an Aquia Toto II Dual Flush, the same one we had in our old house and installed in this house when we moved in. We've used it for years and already know we love it! It seriously saved so much water when we first made the switch in our old pad - 0.9 liters per flush if you use the small button. That's HALF what a normal water-saving toilet uses. I can also vouch for the fact that um, the small (#1) button does the job perfectly fine for everything I've ever seen go into it, if you get my drift. More pictures and posts of the rest of the construction coming soon!
