shower floor

Found this photo online of someone else having done a basketweave carerra floor in the shower. ooooo it gives me goosebumps, it's so pretty....

Perhaps this is a good time to mention the hilarious escapade taht M and I had at the end of last week. Our builders called on Thursday that the plumbers would be working on Friday and needed to know the height of the showerheads-- could we go out to the house and mark how high we wanted them. First off, I thought this was the sort of thing that was standard, but apparently not. In fact, dear husband tells me (look who's been researching) that there is a whole debate online about the proper height of shower heads. In any case, it was almost 7:30 by the time I got off the train and DARK. We went over to the house in our winter coats with flashlights and spent the next twenty minutes taking turns standing in the bathtub with the showerhead held over our heads while the other person balanced the flashlight and sharpie pen to mark the height on the wall. It was pretty hilarious. Goodness knows what the neighbors thought of the flashlights flashing in our empty house. Also, turns out that shower heads are Extremely heavy-- this added to the awkwardness of the whole thing.
Ultimately I think we'll be fine- as long as it's tall enough that it doesn't him M. in the head and short enough that I can actually reach it on tiptoe, then we're fine.
One more thing down.....
