I’ve made it pretty clear to all involved that I want a bathtub. A four story house and no bathtub?! But as we went through the house today with Tamara, Patricia, and contractor folks, and I listened to them talk about the various problems with the structural integrity, all I kept seeing was the scene from The Money Pit where Tom Hanks just wants a hot bath but when he fills up the tub it goes crashing through the floor and he finally, finally goes insane. Perhaps I should start practicing that laugh now.

But I think I’m getting an inkling of how the team works…Tamara will draw up structural plans for the contractor, who will price the plan to repair the structure and implement Patricia’s design. Yep, that’s pretty much all I understand so far. They discussed a work start date of mid-February. Fingers crossed.

The one saving grace, the pool, is blue and beautiful. I need to call and thank Parry Pools for giving us one operational feature to enjoy. Y’know the pool sorta looks like a big bathtub…
