    I've got nearly three feet between the bath's feet, a good 16" depth from the front of the bath to the central downpipe, and an easy 5" height to slurp up cleaners, sprays, wipes and what not.

    I'm torn between installed drawer runners (neat, yet fiddly) or (easier for me) rollers on the lino to work this.

    I think I'd go with runners. You could make the whole panel removable with something like Fastmount fittings. You can't see them and they're sturdy. The drawer front can either overlap or be flush.

    We thought about doing that, but went for a more conventional solution, that allows the bottles to stand upright.

    Good work Andy!

    On shower curtains, a friend proudly showed his new addition. It had the shadow of Anthony Perkins with knife hand raised...

    Good way to start the day.

    Ooh. Shou Sugi Ban sink shelves. Bathroom drawer on left able to slurp up loo rolls and tall bottles. Result!

    Which means, lino, skirting, and t&g paint=finish.

    I really have got this!

    that is a lovely sink treatment.

    i intalled a 48" wide sink/vanity cabinet and when my wife moved her stuff in, there was no space for a disposable razor.

    off to the half bath with me and my (apparently pretty lax) personal hygiene requirements!

    In US Realtor speak:

    1/2 bath is a sink & toilet
    3/4 bath adds a shower
    Full replaces the shower with a tub - which will also usually have a shower head

    Aspirations are inspirations. Our lower level bathroom catered to the previous Tool Maker owner. Shower,stool ,and sink. With a port for chucking dirty work clothes directly into the laundry room.

    Cork tiles are warmer underfoot than lino.

    Nope - in a suburban home built after the 70's & to this day, it's usually on the first floor & for guests to use.

    Wrapping it up...

    And...

    IMG_20220706_210818_2.jpg

    The lino is laid over 2mm laminate underlay and, while not as warm as cork tiles, benefits from that maze of pipes running under the floor, as shown earlier. Certainly not cold.

    Job. Done.

    (But we're now looking at the kitchen in a certain way.)

    Current cost of flight to Arizona? 1236.
    Cost of bathroom bits and pieces? 2850.
    Labour? 280 hours. Cost 0.

    ...maybe Paul was onto something.
