    Just think of it as an intermittent waterfall, it could be very soothing.

    In the last house I had -- a cheap thrown together twin that was so shoddy, it felt like it was going to collapse when the wind blew --

    The bathroom over the dining room... when the commode was flushed, it sounded like a log flume inside the wall. The cascading water literally sounded like somebody upstairs dropped a very solid unyielding deuce, and threw in a few rocks to help it go down.

    DIY is endlessly intimidating.............there's no getting it perfect is there?!

    I'm tempted to tackle the tub-to-shower conversion myself while I have the time, but know I have no business even entertaining the thought. One of my uncles left school around 8th grade, but he used books to teach himself to renovate and repair nearly anything, though.

    You don't need no steenkin books, you got us. Pretty sure we have made every mistake possible. That would make it easier for you to replicate.
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    Hmmm.........mentioned this to John this morning, he reminded me of the extent of the demolition that would have to take place just to replace the plumbing in the wet wall first. Basically, it's mobilize and have everything ready/documented, or nothing.
