New Shower and doors

We took out the  fiberglass unit and old shower doors. We installed a cultured marble unit with new 3/8" heavy glass doors. All the plumbing fixtures are brushed nickel and look nice.

A flea or skeeter collar for humans! I am somewhat impressed with the repellent ability of the band/collar.

Privacy screen

We used a satin finish on grey glass with chrome hardware to make a privacy screen. The bathroom is large enough for two people to get ready for the day. However the water closet was very open and needed a little enclosure.

Screened in

The squirrels had chewed into the old screen and created a super highway for the bugs. We removed the old screen and bug bodies, cleaned up the staples, and rescreening went well.

Disaster averted

The care home has 2 large doors and they get a lot of action. The years of service have brought some not so good repair people. The pivot hinges on the outside door was not made for this make of door. This caused the top pivot to break the header connection and hold on by sheer luck. The 2 heavy duty continuous  hinges will give years of service. We have also installed a new threshold where the bastard pivot hinges were made to fit.
