We have finally got around to sharing some photos of the bathrooms, well the guest bathroom [for now], the master is tiny and hard to shoot – but we will do it shortly. The fixtures are all original. There appears to have been an addition of a cabinet above the sink at some-point, they have a different finish to the other surfaces, and made from wood formica. The lower cabinet was designed by Paul McCobb the hardware is notably his, and covered with a wood veneer, countertops are formica. We are glad the upper cabinet was added – it provides some extra space and ease of access to storing things. The bathrooms are also the only rooms in the house without a window, so without natural light.
That wall-hung toilet is still fulfilling its duty and securely fastened to the wall [now – when we moved it was a little loose]. The master has a matching yellow one directly behind this one, until we had the bolts tightened it was like a teeter-totter, if someone was on one loo, and then someone sat on the other – you could feel them move [we had to fix that – all good now].
Oh! And that print behind the toilet – apparently Mrs. Frost purchased that from a neighborhood garage sale. The tile is to our knowledge original, and shows some staining and cracks at the floor level [we show our warts and wear them proudly].
The bath / shower combination is very common to the era, and all original in excellent working order. The one thing that scares us – is the nutone – ceiling heater above the shower, we are going to have it disconnected from the switch, it does work, but it is a fire hazard as it doesn’t turn itself off. Currently the switch is taped so no one can turn it on.
Nothing spectacular here, just very functional.
