Austin Texas Residence traditional bathroom

Austin Texas Residence

The restoration of an 1899 Queen Anne design, with columns and double gallery added ca. 1910 to update the house in the Colonial Revival style with sweeping front and side porches up and downstairs, and a new carriage house apartment. All the rooms and ceilings are wallpapered, original oak trim is stained, restoration of original light fixtures and replacement of missing ones, short, sheer curtains and roller shades at the windows. The project included a small kitchen addition and master bath, and the attic was converted to a guest bedroom and bath.

Can I adjust the height of the shower curtain rod to custom fit my sloped ceiling? - Hi. Just bought a home with an awesome clawfoot tub! The downside is (somewhat similar to this picture) my ceiling slopes quite a bit but only on the side of the faucet. I'm trying to figure out a way to add the conversion kit..if possible.

Yes, you can adjust it. The height of the riser (vertical supply line) is cut to size by your plumber to fit the space.

I think this Pipeline Supply comment is an inappropriate marketing effort; they are not at all affiliated with this project.

And I meant to mention this question has been asked before, and there are some suggestions in the other answers.

No marketing effort intended. We just want to make sure people who see this set up shown in the photo realize that in some states, and some cities, this does not make code due to having a separate hot and cold knob valves. However, depending upon the local and state codes(and inspectors who interpret the codes) there may or may not be things such as: valve mixers and temperature limit reducers that can be used to make this pass codes in the area the viewers are located. It's simple education on the product you see in the picture is all.

What size is the tub? - I'd love to remove my regular tub and replace with one like this, but only have so much room.

Thank you for reporting this. Undo
Before you replace a regular tub, decide if you really want to have to clean under and behind a clawfoot. If you like long soaks, some clawfoots don't hold the heat and you spend so much time adding hot water to keep warm that it isn't relaxing.

We agree with Laurel's comment. It is important to do research first. We work with historic cast iron tubs which have superior heat retention but they are also very heavy, especially once loaded with water.

The shower enclosure is 3/4-inch OD brass tubing and the two piece shower riser is 3/8-inch brass pipe.
