The Cottage Toilet Grows Up

After Charlie and I laid laminate floor in the Cottage bathroom we he put the same toilet that had been in there back in.

Charlie reinstalled the Cottage toilet after we laid the floor. This is the old toilet.

There was a crack in the toilet which we didn’t mind since the water to the Cottage was turned off for much of the year when no one lived there.

The new Toto toilet has no cracks.

Now however our tenant is getting some work done on the Cottage and has decided to replace the standard toilet with a new comfort height model.

The toilet alcove is behind the bathtub.

It was installed in the alcove behind the tub and across from the vanity.

The window blind has also been changed to a white mini-blind. (See above photo.)

I’m sure it will be appreciated.  I love the new taller toilets in the house.

Do you have white or colored fixtures in your bathroom?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

  1. Our toilet is standard height, but all my future toilets will be comfort height! Good choice. If I happen to be wearing platform shoes, it’s a LONG way down to the standard toilet!
