Did you know a 36" shower won't fit in a 36" front door?
We went shopping for a shower stall yesterday. And we found one on clearance! It’s fiberglass and heavy-duty! WHAT A DEAL! Right? Just think of the time and energy it’s gonna save us! We don’t have to build a custom shower unit ourselves then tile it and have custom doors made! WOOHOO! Yeah for us!
We were seriously jazzed over the find! I woke up #3 son to help get it in the house.. but then.. it wouldn’t fit! No way, no how! What to do, what to do??? Okay, Okay so scathingly brilliant idea.. bring it in through the back doors in the dining room! YEAH for us again!
Do you see the nice arched doorway and the small shelf hanging down from above? Oh yeah, that counter is 42 inches high.. I’m tall so DH raised all the cabinets in the kitchen to my level. Isn’t he sweet? Because of the shelf it had to come straight in above the counter then turn.. now take a close look at the faucet in that picture.. kinda tilted now isn’t it? It wouldn’t fit! Back out and takes the faucets off then DH climbs up on to the counter and lifts and turns it with #3 son on the other end. He has to get off the counter to spin it the rest of the way so he jumps. I did mention that he is the one who raised that counter right? He went down yelling! His back.. tweaked..
I don’t think I mentioned that is the shower for the upstairs bathroom. See the stairs behind it? Yep, you guessed it! That shower will be in my family room for a while!
Here’s a pic of my new rooster and my new kitchen rug.. we got everything on clearance…
but I’m thinking maybe making that custom shower might have been a better idea after all…
