The tub in the master bathroom isn't original but is a great feature. It's designed to hold warmth and is perfect for relaxing in after a long day.
The Bassos were very interested in maintaining the original furniture pieces and mixing them in with the new. "The biggest dilemma was utilizing all the great finds, while trying to stay within budget. I found out very quickly that it is much more expensive to utilize old instead of building new. I would find great old doors, hardware, stained glass windows, corbels, balusters, railings and bring them to my contractor. We would have to scratch our heads for days and weeks sometimes to think of a place to use them, which is satisfying but expensive," Kathy explains.
