We’re currently living in my parents’ house while getting it ready to sell, since they’ve moved to an independent living community in the city. Dad was a “maker” long before the Internet came along and coined the term, and this house was his magnum opus. He pretty much bought some books and read them, and then started building. It’s a pretty unique house with a lot of cool stuff about it, but there are some little details where you can tell he hadn’t had a lot of experience before. One of those is the master bedroom shower.
It’s a big, awesome shower, with two shower heads on opposite walls, a lighted panel set into the back wall, a built-in bench, and a “sauna” feature. But the faucets are…wonky. They don’t all follow the usual “righty tighty lefty loosey” convention for adjusting the flow, so I’m forever scalding or freezing myself when I try to adjust the water temperature, because I can’t ever remember which ones turn which way. So today I pulled out some acrylic scraps and fixed the problem.
Now I’m ready for my next shower! Which may be a while, because the Arctic weather of the past week took out the pump in our well, and there’s only one well guy in the whole county, and he’s up to his ears in emergency work right now…sigh
