The way you install a new showerhead is to unscrew the old one and screw on the new one. It is pretty much the same as changing a lightbulb. You can do it!
If cost variance is the #1 remodeling nightmare, the never-ending project is clearly #2. As a customer, you should have a clear projection of how long actual construction and execution should take, from the very start of the process. Custom remodeling is never painless and always difficult, but all parties should agree on a definitive plan that can be achieved. We strive to keep your inconvenience to an absolute minimum, through what we call Time Certainty.
I never expected or imagined that people were so gracious and caring. My friends gave their time and talents. The work took much longer than we had planned. But the people coming and going were welcome company. My plan was to cope with cancer. What I discovered was many good people wanted to help. They just need to know what needs to be done. I am thankful for the good people in my life.
Shopping for a new showerhead is a lot of fun, but you can’t really do it online. Online pictures don’t really capture the wonder and majesty of the brushed nickel and brass, and the twirly, flowery, or modernistic designs. You have to see the wall-mounted displays in person, at the home improvement center, to really appreciate them. It is here in the plumbing aisle that your fantasy of getting drenched under one of those rainshowers” turns into an obsession. If you break into song, and dance around in the plumbing aisle, that’s okay. I think they are used to it.
in reply to flowergardener Um.. er.. no. 🙂 To be honest, we made out well financially with the sale, so that made moving out a LOT easier. Not to mention the house’s proximity to the railroad crossing and the train horns. (Flagstaff gets over 100 of them on some days. Talk about noisy!) Someday, we’ll have a home that we’ll hold on to, but, for now, we’re really happy living at Lowell Observatory, where my husband works.
