This past weekend, we did a quick remodel of our bathroom. My spouse repainted the walls, doors, and trim. He replaced the baseboard and the vanity, because water took a toll on our only bathroom, and the laminate started to come off the vanity. We have new baseboard that is a type of vinyl, but it looks like wood now that it is painted and caulked. My spouse is so handy from fixing everything around here that he works fast. The vanity and sink that we removed was donated to Stardust: Goodwill’s version of a ReStore. The sink was in great condition.

I’m not the most confident driver. Part of my love for the Shasta Compact is that 1) it was within the towing capacity of my small RV -the Toyota Rav4 , and 2) its compactness makes towing a bit less intimidating. When planning a … Read More

Losing the entire floor also meant losing all the plumbing that was underneath the house as well. All the existing bathroom fixtures, bathtub, sink and commode were useless without extensive replacement plumbing and new fixtures. Yes, I like corner vanities too though sometimes they’re a bit too small for my liking. Still, it really does depend on available space. Changing the rug or towels in the bathroom, or a new bedspread or curtains in the bedroom can change of the look of the room without any remodeling whatsoever.

Back around to curbside. The louvered windows all work, and the storage cabinet holds the vintage leveling jacks that came with her.
Skylights work well in most any kitchen and any ceiling type. The size and positioning has to be carefully considered. A skylight doesn’t have to be large to make a big impact – the daylight will provide the impact – leave that to Mother Nature. Good idea for a closet in the bathroom. I have one and love the storage there and that items are hidden in there too. Good for you doing this reno!

For instance, if you were interested in changing the location of the toilet, … Read More

That’s another good reason to do the straight ones. Although of course there are the curved parts underneath the glass, which is where I got the idea for the drawer pulls. Gah!
Another thing to consider is the moisture. Since mold and mildew develop easily in a bathroom, and humidity … Read More
The above photo was taken when we did a walk through on the house. At the time, this was the only bathroom in the house and it certainly was not in the worst condition I’ve ever seen, thankfully, but we definitely knew we wanted to update it eventually.
Showerheads, toilets, and faucets have all become more water-efficient in recent years, thanks to the Environmental Protection Agency’s voluntary WaterSense program, which labels products that are 20 percent more efficient than federal standards. Our tests have found many WaterSense winners, including low-flow showerheads that deliver a satisfying pulse while meeting the flow rate of 2.5 gallons per minute. You can even have a rain showerhead these days that’s low-flow,” says Petrie.
And here’s what it looks like now….I’m in love with the color gray!! We tiled the floor (using the same tile we used in the 1/2 bath) and tiled behind the … Read More
I had talked about it several times.. and finally convinced Mr.Z and our contractor/cabinet maker son, that we needed to remodel the bathroom now and make it accessible for the elderly and handicap.
As a rule of thumb, artwork should be placed no more than five to nine inches above a sofa and no more than seven to ten inches above a table. The placement of your artwork should also relate to its surroundings. As a guideline for proportion, one or more pictures (including mirrors or other wall décor) should cover about 2/3 of the wall space above the piece of furniture. For example, if you have a 6 foot wide sofa, plan on a single picture or an arrangement that is about 4 feet wide and centered above the sofa.

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.
If your space does not have an architectural feature to serve as a focal point, you can create one by using, for example, a dramatic (in scale, style, color, design) piece of furniture, a sculpture, a striking painting on an easel or a picture hung on a wall. When the remodeling party was done, … Read More
