I might get over the outlet in the shower. But I will not accept the toilet paper holder in the shower.

Notice that the hot lead is at least a quarter inch from a metal oil pipe and it is almost 48 inches off the ground so the children won't touch it...

Eh, where does the wire go and how much glue did he use to stick that thing there?

Maybe.

Over the years I've done a couple of pretty ridiculous plumbing things but never anything that bad.

Here's my latest success, and one of the reasons I've been scarce lately: http://fatchatter.com/forum/index.php?topic=1582.0

Is that a sauna?

It's not a sauna but the floor and shower are heated.

Well I suspect most people would be disappointed if they couldn't get a hot shower.

Have you ever done a sauna? Could you? Would it be hard?

The floor of the shower is heated, you literalist.

This house has a sauna though I've not included pictures. There's about 900 sq ft of sauna with a dropdown ladder for easy access.

It's true. I was up there last week. It was a balmy 160 degrees. Very relaxing.

We had something like that in the summer. It was the room over the garage where the air conditioner couldn't reach.

I've never seen a house have an actual sauna like in cities saunas. That's just fancy. Do they have a cigar humidifier?

Phobia

It's not an actual sauna, it's an attic. But how do you think somebody thought of a sauna?

LOL. This reminds me of when the guys who installed our central air apparently couldn't use a level and the drip pan was a little cockeyed. First, I see a wet spot on the ceiling... I tell my mom that it's gonna come down. 15 minutes later BOOM! We got a nice new ceiling and carpeting because of it though..

So, are those from several different locations? I am surprised the house(s) haven't burned down. Surely, somebody got electrocuted. Scary stuff.
