As we soon discovered, this house has a great deal of things that need to be fixed... The worst are the bathrooms. We have 3 1/2.
The full bath in the basement has several problems. The towel rack is missing the left side and the bar. The sink in there has no hot water connection and the toilet seat is broken (it was cracked when we moved in and one of the movers sat on it and broke the whole thing off!).
The sink leaks (BIG TIME) in the half bath on the main floor. We can use the toilet but have to wash our hands in the kitchen sink. It looks really pretty though!
The bathroom that the kids will use ~ well they can wash their hands and brush their teeth (thank goodness) but can't use the toilet because we have to keep the water valve turned off because it sprays water everywhere... so if they need to use the restroom they have to come into our master bath.
Ah the master bath... this is the bathroom I'm writing about today. The toilet works and the sink works but it is probably the least favorite room in the house for me. First off ~ no flamingos. No room for such things so they will mostly be relegated to other parts of the house.
Next is the sink area ~ we still have two sinks but they are both in the same cabinet. Not really too much of a problem except under the sinks we have a couple of large cabinets but no drawers. There are no drawers anywhere in our bathroom. I need drawers to put stuff in! I need drawers!
Let us not forget the medicine cabinet... We only have one ~ Good thing Richard and I share well. Of course it would be easier if it wasn't missing all the middle shelves!
Now, the real pain in the butt (quite literally) is this toilet
And you have to hold the lever down until it stops flushing. You can't just hit it and walk away. I guess in the grand scheme of things ~ at least both the toilet and sink work but not a very good design in my opinion. Just one of the things I need to learn to live with.
A few flamingos here and there.
Also updated to let you know that most of the other bathroom issues have also been addressed. Both the main floor 1/2 bath and the kids bathroom are now in working order. The bathroom in the basement still has a few issues but the home owners are dealing with them.
Once that bathroom is complete I'll have to add pics cause some of the flamigos have found their way down there along with a flamingo shower curtain. Many of the "stuffed" flamingos however, are still looking for a home....
