Theory being that older knees aren't happy with the height of a standard toilet and, therefore, standing up is a lot easier when one has a head start of several inches.
You bet. That kiddie size commode is already in the dumpster and the high rise ordered.
This is probably a good time to mention that the work is going without a hitch...so far. While waiting for the vanity and built in cabinetry, along with the cultured granite shower surround they have been busy working on replacing the carpeted basement stair with solid oak treads and risers. They've also put new flooring in my downstairs office area.
I suspect they will put in the radiant heat and floor tile over the next few days and get some painting done.
I'm projecting wrapping up by 2/10, but that may be just a tad optimistic. I'm very impressed by the quality of the work and the mere fact they show up on-time everyday...even the subs, which is simply amazing in my experience!
