We're actually going to be putting pink (not Pepto, more grapefruit) back into our master. Inspiration was from the Eichler Palms master bath:
Oh man, you know I'm a sucker for anythgin Eichler! Cant wait to see you take that one one!

We thought about extending that tiny bathroom but ultimately backed off on the idea. The house was very smartly designed with literally every plumbing fixture for 2 bathrooms and the laundry room sharing a single drain line. Bumping the bathroom wall out to gain us a few extra feet of space would have meant moving that main trunk over a few feet and relocating the drains for a tub, shower, 2 sinks, 2 toilets, washing machine, and laundry sink. Oh, and literally EVERY supply and drain line in the house is copper! Even the vent stacks are copper. No kidding. Copper prices must have been rock bottom in 1965. Can you imagine wandering into Home Depot today to grab a 3 inch diameter solid copper pipe to use as a vent stack?

The master bath project will be a year or two down the road, but I'll post pics!

You should check out the "desert Eichlers" - this developer (https://kudproperties.com/) bought the rights to some original Eichler/Anshen and Allen floor plans and built a new Eichler neighborhood in Palm Springs. Pretty cool - the husband/wife team from HGTV Stay or Sell owns that Eichler Palms house and rent it out on Air BnB.

Good lord, no. A lot of things were "better" and a lot of things were "worse" back in the mid-60s, I reckon. It would be an interesting time travel experience, though, I have no doubt.

Thankfully for us, this bathroom extension shouldn't require relocating any major plumbing.

Headed to Palm Springs in March for our annual "get out of the rain and get some sun" adventure. Will have to go check that out. Thanks for the tip!

It's pricey, IIRC - but they've got it full of legit Eames/Knoll/Pearson/etc furniture and such.

I'm betting there are others in the neighborhood that are also vacation rentals, though.

If we ever build again, the house WILL have a central courtyard and tons of glass like most of the Eichlers do.

Not sure why I never posted these. From awhile back we decided we needed a bridge to get to other side of property. Most the year it's dry but when it rains totally necessary

I built a new roof for the chickens' coop, and then painted it RED RED WINE (official color) with something I had left in a can that got me 2 good coats. I haven't yet completed "The Penthouse" on top yet, ran out of motivation.

Since I did this, we are probably done with rain for 18-24 months

Added to my driveway today.

Now I need to get my 20x20 carport ordered and then build the room to hold my pressure washer. Getting closer to having a lighted wash bay at home.

This year I'm finally going to completely renovate the bathroom in my condo. I actually am completely disinterested in doing it, but it has to be done. The challenge is my 1 bedroom condo only has 1 bathroom, so a speedy timeline is a necessity. Luckily, I travel for work, and have a LOT of Hyatt points to stay in a local hotel on the weekends without paying any money.

The project will involve relocating the electric-radiant heat from the ceiling (so dumb), to the floor. Even though my hot water heater is under the counter in the kitchen; I'm going to put in a tankless system while there's a plumber involved. Thinking of a wall-mounted vanity to help the small (11' x 5') room feel bigger. My biggest challenge besides time is incorporating as much storage as possible. Of course since I'm a card-carrying audiophile, I'll do my usual 2 zones of audio with a shower zone, and a vanity zone.... With KEF speakers of course!

How about the shitter? If you have an enclosed "water closet" you'll need a shitter zone too.

If that’s an electric tankless you’ll need an electrician as well. When they switch on, they need a lot more juice than tank heaters.

The entire room is only 11'x5' so no separate shitter zone is required. The theory of the separate shower zone is that I don't have to have the speakers by the vanity playing when I'm in the shower, and vice versa.

I'll need an electrician for the heating and lighting in the bathroom anyway, but I've looked into the demands of the tankless unit and the existing circuit is good to go. Keep in mind it's only a 750 ft^2 condo with 1 bathroom and 1 resident (me). A small unit has all the capacity needed for the application.

Our latest house is a new build, but it was already completed when we purchased so we're making a few changes. The kitchen felt very constricted due to a lack of counter space because the cabinets are so deep and mounted so low. We also didn't care for the dark backsplash when the rest of the house is light tones.

Kitchen before:


Demo and relocate under cabinet lighting:


Patched and ready:


Lining up the first row:


Almost there:


First iteration completed. Discovered the new lights don't extend past the shelves to light the counters:


Swapped the lights and added a knife block:


Added a mini herb garden and wood paneling for the bunker above the hood. Finished!

Very well done! I really like the shelves in lieu of the cabinets. The tile looks way better than the mosaic.

When I get around to finishing it I'll post some pictures of the closet I am redoing for the wife. Took out all of the wire shelving, fresh paint, oak built in desk and shelving.

We've got a loud babbling creek on our property so we built a 20 x 10 man cave next to it to light a fire, play games listen to the creek or watch tv in. Outside of it is 85% done (it's winter here) inside is pretty much done.

Nicely done! I'm considering buying the lot next to me and either building a tree house or a platform and putting a yert on it. This motivates me. Digging the black subway tile.

thanks! You should do it. A cool treehouse sounds great.

You might dig it a little less, the subway tile is actually blue/gray. Since the ceiling is black, we wanted a little contrast.

Tested the parking on my new slab yesterday. This is roughly how the cars would fit under a 20X20 car port with a 4 foot gap between the house and carport. The plan is to order and aluminum carport and dress it up with stained 2x1's to match the deck.

This is roughly the idea I am going for.
