Anyhow, since I was otherwise detained with the van in MA, Cy decided to try and bring it home in the convertible with the top down. As you can see it was a success.
We had been considering building a Japanese soaking tub or buying a new spa type tub. Both required a lot more money and time. This tub is like the best of all worlds. Unlike most Victorian tubs it is straight up and down, and quite deep. No more cold shoulders. I'm not sure it was actually a bathtub. Maybe some farm thing. Anyhow, its a bathtub now. It is made of single cedar boards and is lined in old copper with just the best patina. All square nailed to boot.

One of the things we want to do with this remodel is to restore the size of the back bedroom In the '60s they took 2' out of the bedroom and added it to the bathroom and furnace closet. Which resulted in a bedroom too narrow for a double bed. And its such a potentially lovely room with a tiny fireplace and a view over the woods out back. Reputedly it was the office of the sea captain who once lived here. Anyhow, we're taking the 2' feet back out of the bathroom, and putting it back into the bedroom.
I wish I could somehow leave this view open, its the back of the bake oven and fireplace. Wouldn't it be lovely to have a shower somehow cascading down the rocks? Oh, well dream on. As Cy pointed out it would also cascade across the floor.
That's all for now, time out for the Sutton show in 2 days. You remember, pack pack pack, load load load. See you soon.
