During the course of the Indiana project a curious neighbor has frequented the job site. She has readily offered her opinion to the carpenters working at the house and they in turn share those opinions with me.
In the beginning she shared a lot of praise, saying that the family that lived there would be bursting with happiness to see what we had done with the house. These days she serves up opinions on paint colors and a little criticism.
Last week she walked in for her weekly tour. Upon entering the master bath, she exclaimed “oh mistake” and added “no tub in the master!”
Ms. Neighbor should know after research and deliberation we chose not to squeeze a tub in to that space. She might also like to know that most people that I questioned never used their jetted garden tubs. The real estate agent assured me that it was not a deal breaker.
Maybe Ms. Neighbor was comforted when her tour continued upstairs and she found a tub in the bath up there.
For the sake of comedy and a little irony, you might like to know that Ms. Neighbor’s house resembles the creepy Klopek house from the movie The Burbs.
Whats your take on the tub in the master? Necessary, obligatory, unneeded amenity? And I already know what your answer is Betsy!
