    I would rather have it look like part of the house.

      Norm, it did.
      They matched everything but the windows and those were so close, you had to really look close to see a diff.

      Cool bathroom unit though, huh???

        I can't use a bathroom like that. It needs to be a roll in shower.

          Turtle Homes...

          Me and hubby are still playing with the idea of having one of those put up when we find ourselves nice piece of property (since our house is starting to get a little bit tight with our two little guys and planning on some more addition). They seem to be priced reasonably, and if you put a nice basement under it, you are having quite a mansion going for you!
          Couple of the homeplans look better then the other ones...

            This isn;t silly at all, the fact that we don't have the privacy we want for our bodies and bodily functions just makes the provacy of the rest of our lives all that more important.

              No need for them to be in the rest of the space.
              I hear what you're saying about privacy and such, but what you're saying here sounds like you want to treat a caregiver as an inferior, not even just a servant. I see tremendous difficulty in balancing that attitude with a desire to have that caregiver actually treat one with care.

                From my experience, my Nurse sometimes use to sit out back on the patio (I live in FL we kept the sliders open most of the time) because he didn't want to be in the middle of the familys discussions. Then as the family filtered out he would sit in the living room. I'm going to use the TV room next to my bedroom in the new house as my nurses sitting room.

                  that would be cool... but w/o Travolta's (house is his, right?) cashflow it might be a little far-fetched.

                      I'd have a mirror on the ceiling.

                          Here's what my current room looks like. I was a garage. Its a mess because I'm moving in a few weeks I hope.
