I don't know what to say. Old houses -- built in 1947 -- old additions -- can anyone say 1970's? This will end up being a series of posts. This is our en suite (on suite if you prefer). If you can call it an en suite. Seriously, it is a closet type 3/4 bath. If you enter from the family room, to our master, you put your arm out so the door doesn't hit you. If you are sitting in our master, you can and do get a beautiful view of the toilet. But that's not the post. Seriously, thousands of dollars and remodels later it could be solved (I don't plan on the thousands of dollars and remondels). But the post is about making it work. Yep, as Tim Gunn says "Make it work".
