Doctor Funkenstein: My anus armory.
hej: Crudbucket: We just moved into a new apartment and the bathrooms are carpeted. I don't farking get it.It helps insure all the stray urine sprinkles get extra fermented over time.
Rigby-Reardon: Englebert Slaptyback: DeucednuisanceWell, that's not always true, especially in areas where the water table is close to the surface. Then you need one of these:That's a fair point; I should have allowed for some exceptions. You bastard. ;-)However, I have to ask: how many locations might there be where the water table is low enough to make a basement feasible but high enough to make below-basement-level sewage infeasible? Honest question, btw. Unless the basement is waterproofed exceedingly well this looks like an invitation to headache.Or is it intended more as a retrofit where someone wants a basement bathroom and a new sewer line would be prohibitively expensive?It is not just for a case of low water table. If your basement is downhill from the street and you are hooking up to city sewer you may need to pump sewage up hill to the city sewer.
senoy: It'd occasionally be nice to have another toilet since our teenage daughter apparently thinks that a short shower is roughly two years long, but other than that, it's really not a big deal.
Hagbardr: One communal bath house per block for shiats and showers. Used milk jugs when you need to piss.
Shadowe: The article claims it's the 1% driving things but personally I'd say it's poverty. How many people are splitting houses instead of apartments now because it's all they can afford? You get one couple per bedroom in a 3/4 bedroom house and you're going to need more than one bathroom.All you need is more than 3 people to catch diahrrea in a house with one toilet and I guarantee you someone's shiatting in the sink.
Sudo_Make_Me_A_Sandwich: Egoy3k: Master bath, everyone else, and a half bath in a convenient location? That seems pretty reasonable to me.For a family, that's pretty reasonable. And a bathroom doesn't have to be that expensive, people have just gone absolutely nuts with finishings lately. I just want to take a shiat, not feel like I walked into a spa.

Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: One bathroom and a random toilet in the middle of an unfinished basement is more than acceptable.
doglover: Trailltrader: If bathrooms are the most expensive in the house then someone can't do math.If your bathroom ISN'T the most expensive room in the house, you're doing it wrong.[4.bp.blogspot.com image 450x566]You see that? Those are diamonds.
