2016 Bathroom Remodel Cost Guide

In this poor housing market, Quonset huts are popular with new homeowners as well as with retirees looking for an affordable way to move to a warmer climate. A quonset hut is a type of arch-style, semicylindrical steel building that was used in World War II for equipment storage. Since then, Quonset huts have been used for inexpensive equipment storage in commercial and agricultural settings. In today’s housing market, Quonset-hut homes are a popular option, mainly because they’re less expensive to build or buy than other types of homes and can be built in less time.

We were going to put a granite counter top in but with a vinyl floor that seemed too weird besides it was $850 on sale for a remnant. I found a Formica brand of vinyl that looks like marble called 180fx and we really liked it. Plus an 8 ft piece cost $45 on sale at Home Depot. The man will install it. I think those lights are actually paid for and then some. Will show you the finished product hopefully before the holidays. I am currently working on stripping and painting the outside of that claw foot tub. Almost done! And my man is the most patient on earth.

For a breathtakingly beautiful and unique corner bathtub, choose one made of onyx, travertine, marble, or sandstone. Many of these bathtubs are individually hand crafted from a single block of stone, so no two are exactly alike. These bathtubs cost substantially more, but they last a lifetime and are virtually maintenance free. A hand-sculpted natural stone corner bathtub is like having a functional work of art in your bathroom! See the photo below of a corner bathtub crafted of natural stone.

A grouping of pieces different in size, shape, color or other attributes will work better in an asymmetrical arrangement. Such a grouping should be hung so that the visual weight of the objects appears balanced. One way to do this without making a lot of unnecessary holes in your wall is to lay out the arrangement on the floor first, adjusting the grouping until you have arranged the items in the most pleasing (least lop-sided) way.

You may also be able to find items either in your own house, at yard sales, at thrift stores, and at a Habitat for Humanity Restore that can be repurposed to a different function. I use a chest of drawers with bookshelf that was made for a bedroom in my kitchen. The bookshelf part works great for cookbooks and cereal boxes while the drawers hold my kitchen towels, plastic wrap and similar items.
