Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we do not know because the client already had that prior to the renovation.

Hi Lucy, here are some bathrooms I really like. Most of them include a nice, free-standing bathtub. I am wondering if we have room for a bathtub in the bathroom we talked about today.

My husband has a cousin and his wife who come to visit every year. They are a joy to have around, but they insist on bringing their own bedding: sheets, towels, sleeping bags and pillows. We have plenty of rooms with good beds and lots of linen to outfit a small B&B, especially now that the kids are all grown up and have moved out. I always tell them to forget their bedding and linen and use what's already on the bed. Finally after 20+ years they've stopped bringing in their camping gear LOL

While I'm pretty good at setting up comfortable sleeping quarters and bath needs, I am really bad about food, especially breakfast - mainly because I never eat breakfast myself, I only have coffee (3 cups before I feel human enough to tackle the day). Luckily my husband takes care of this and his cousin's wife also handles breakfast like a pro. I can put together a decent dinner but breakfast eludes me and lunch is spotty at best. When it's just the 2 of us, we usually lunch on left-overs, not exactly gracious living LOL

They have often brought their dog, but they are thoughtful. The dog will stay outside (if it's not winter or rainy) or in the garage if the weather is bad. This is mainly because we have a cat who'll go crazy with a dog in the house. Not sure which of the 2 pets would win the fights.

We occasionally have other houseguests but luckily they don't all come at the same time, though we could accommodate quite a few comfortably. Easy if all they want for breakfast is coffee and cookies or croissants. It gets dicey when they expect a cooked breakfast with all the trimmings. Hubby does it, but usually I'm not involved until after the meal when I collect the dirty dishes and cutlery and pans and load up the dishwasher. And then I grumble that he didn't use the stove fan so the cooking smells have spread all over the house LOL
