ONE bathroom.

If you have ever been in one of these old, letter homes, you'll know that there is usually only ONE bathroom! For the life of me I can't figure out why the ONE bathroom is at the top of the stairs - but it is! There is no bathroom on the main floor. There is no bathroom in the basement. If you have to go - you have to run up an entire flight of stairs to reach the restroom.

This has been an adventure for our family of FIVE!! I had my doubts at the beginning as to how we would ever survive with ONE bathroom at the top of the stairs - but I am happy to report that we've made it work.

And I'm happy to report that plans for bathroom number TWO are in the works!! :)

On the days (like today) when I have a moment to reflect on the journey of this old place I find myself smiling and in amazement at all we've been able to accomplish with just ONE bathroom.

  1. The bathroom situation is the hardest part of living in an old house. It's hard to work on one when it's the only one there (especially when you're living in the house!) So, is the new bathroom going to be in the basement? It must be rough to have to "go" when you're watching a movie in the basement and have to run up two flights of stairs and miss a bunch of the movie!
