Foyer is now back to normal

This area was the center of activity as we remodeled the men & ladies restrooms.

The newly remodeled ladies room.

Not much leg room in front of the toilet!

New flooring in children's area

Cindy and Brian did a ton of work getting this room just right.

Homart toilet

A new brand for me. Probably dates back to the late 40's.

Trophy Urinal

Lucas holds his "trophy" which was taken in the former men's room. Nice catch!


Another bomb in the making?

Look closely and you'll see where the T&P valve should be -- yes, that's a plug! But also notice the attention to detail with the siesmic strapping in place -- it's tied to an electrical conduit.

Why was this leaking

Bet you didn't know you could hook up s.j. tubular at those funky angles. Well, you can't. It leaked like crazy.
