10 Really Cool Quonset Homes—And One Really Ugly One

For those of you who like Curava, now they have a resin based mixed with the cement. It is smooth and maintenance free, unlike its origins. Sales have increased because of the resin base. In fact those who like quartz will like this resin mix. You get the look and it is maintenance free. The one I like the most are the one’s with blue and ice like tones.

We changed the base color to a sage green, while the shutters and trim were repainted the original forest green.

Use large towel hooks behind the door for items like a towel, bathrobe, or even a travel kit that holds the essentials. Wall shelves are another possibility if you happen to have that wall space. If I owned the house I woud remove the large mirror and replace it with a smaller one to allow for wall shelves.
