I'm torn because I adore the master bathroom, but I don't want to climb the stairs. I think I would have to experience both suites to see which one called out to me the most. It's nice to have the choice!

I should add, the bathroom made me motion sick at first, but I'm getting used to it. I've adjusted to the point that I would let it stand. Guests would have quite the experience! If I decided to use the age-friendly bottom suite for myself, I now think I could manage without being disoriented.

Interesting article. An excerpt from Painting Tips from the Pros on Painting Bathtubs and Tile:

Depending on the surface area to be refinished and the amount of repair that’s necessary, a typical tub and tile refinishing job might cost about $1000, Pistor says.

What do you get for the price tag?

Better results. Pros are highly trained, and they have access to better materials than you can get at a big-box store. Miracle Method, for example, uses a blend of fast-drying acrylic resins that bond tightly with the tile surface. Epoxies designed for home use do not bond as strongly, so they won’t last as long — they’ll likely need touching up or redoing in a year or two. Miracle Method guarantees its results for five years, although Pistor says that a life expectancy of 15–20 years is more typical.

Wow, some great ideas! Would you worry about your car not having a garage during the winter snows?

Oh! So adorable! Thanks, Coop. The coloring makes sense, too. It would either be a baby wolverine or a calico because of the rusty colored stomach, so wolverine seems to be it. :)

Me, too. The Craftsman Bungalow is my absolutely favorite architectural style, but I have no use for modern decor. Mid-Century Modern in particular I hate with the fiery passion of a thousand suns. I don't know why BPF would say MCM appealed to him for this house because of the college community. Just how many college students are in the market for a 2-bedroom house that costs $700,000? Maybe he means MCM style is so appealing to college students it will encourage them to enter to win. Shudder, but what do I know.

Where I disagree with you is that I generally love the colors and style choices of BPF. I'm thrilled with many of the rooms in this bungalow. I would just put the MCM pieces up for auction as quickly as possible. For people who do like that style, I think the items he chose would be very desirable.

For me, Goodbye living room sofas and hotel lamps and that chandelier. Goodbye dining room chairs--the item BPF said was probably his favorite find. I get that they are indeed lovely for MCM sensibilities, but I personally wouldn't want them in any house, let alone a Craftsman.

From the Detroit News story that DeerSpring posted just above:

"And there’s a new twist this time. Ulrich said whoever wins the Ann Arbor bungalow doesn’t necessarily have to claim it. They could take a cash option instead, which would be $350,000."

My wolverine has a buddy, but I can't tell what it is. Picture 7 for the guest bedroom. Is that a cat or a baby wolverine?
