Contemplating Bathrooms

See that bathtub on the left over there? We have one. It is in our new home. The home we aren’t living in.  The bathtubs here in University housing leave a lot to be desired.  In fact, I was just dreaming about remodeling the place.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I am very grateful to be here and my accommodations really are quite nice.  In fact, with just a little TLC, these apartments could be showcase units.  Each unit has an incredible deck or patio and the views are fantastic.

My primary complaint is with the kitchen and the bathroom — most especially the bathroom vanities.   These units have been around for a long time and they’ve seen a lot of use. The bathroom counters are stained and chipped.

The bathroom sink is what started my remodeling bent though. Because of the design of the sink and the ancient, sticky faucet, whenever I turn the water on, it comes blasting out, hits the bottom of the bowl, then shoots up the fronte and soaks my shirt. Because the faucet sticks I really have to crank to turn it, which means easing the water on slowly is near impossible.

So, I wish I was rich. I really do love these apartments and it would make me happy to be able to give every one of them a bit of a face lift, especially the bathrooms.


  1. I’ve had a sink like that! I learned to hold my hands in defensive fashion.

    The house we attempted to purchase here had a WONDERFUL soaking tub. It even had a place for me to hang a candle chandelier overhead. We didn’t buy that house, and my bathroom only has a large shower. Instead, I think of the water we are saving by not taking baths. (It keeps me from having a pity party.)

    If housing prices hadn’t slumped so badly and if the neighbor’s house wasn’t headed into foreclosure, I’d be very tempted to remodel our tiny master bath. Given the economic situation, I’m afraid it just wouldn’t pay off.
    Oh, well. 18 more months!

  2. We remodeled our bath in the cabin that burned down in the station fire, it was an interesting experience but worth the effort Mark putt lots of little just for me TLC’S into it that makes me miss is all the more. I hope you have an amazing bubble bath when you get to the new place!
