Believe me, I am not making fun of the people who built this house. The house is 17 years old. They’re way younger than we are. When I was the age they were when they built this house, and we had built a couple of houses by that time . . I wasn’t anywhere near as astute at planning out a house as they were. In fact, I probably still couldn’t do nearly as well as they did way back then.
And, speaking of how nice those people are – they have their own home they’ve just moved into, have a million things to do there, have full time jobs but he just picked Vince up with his pickup and trailer and they’re going to Nevada, MO on a Saturday evening to pick up the rest of our furniture out of the apartment so we can have our bed and love seat!
But back to the funny thing. Remember .. they built this house 17 years ago . . the little toilet room.
While I’m not in the habit of showing toilet pictures, this plug right next to the toilet cracks me up. I love it for charging the phone or notebook. How many times do I grab my tablet to run to the bathroom and it has a dead battery? Often!
Also, there’s a double light switch just above the toilet paper holder. One of those turns on the light above the shower and one turns on the main bathroom light. It’s not very far to the switch just outside the door that turns on the main bathroom light. Vince and I were trying to figure it out. Do you go in there while it’s still light and stay so long that it gets dark and you need to turn the light on, or do you fall asleep and want the light off without having to get up. Not sure and not going to ask.
See the blank plate? A phone! They had a phone in the bathroom. What I wouldn’t have given for a phone on the wall in the bathroom back in the day of house phones.
Also, see the little door just to the left of the toilet and by the window? You can put about 24 rolls of toilet paper in there! That’s probably six months or more worth of toilet paper! I love that!
The window is on the second floor from the ground (main level but walk out basement below) so don’t worry about the sheer-ish curtain. They didn’t even have a curtain on it and even from our deck, because of the angle, you can’t see anything through that window but I felt better with a curtain.
Every day we find more to love a out this house. I hope their new home is as perfect as the one they left behind.
