Oh, and they are bar chairs - they have nice backs and cushy seats!

I'm ready for you all.

No tub, Cat. The first decision I made was square footage, then priorities (kitchen, pantry, guest bedroom) and a tub could not be squeezed in.

Nice guest bedroom, Mac.

I passed a critical test today, the HERS, Home Energy Rating System.

The house looks lovely but I hope you don't regret the bath tub. I moved into this house (formerly my parents' house) as it's a bungalow and I thought it might be sensible given that I have a hip problem. However, mother had the bath taken out and a shower put in some years ago and I do miss being able to soak in the bath when I'm cold or in pain.

First thing I did when designing Mom and Dad's bathroom, was converting from a tub with shower into a walk-in/roll-in shower. It's their retirement home and we decided to make it accessible.
