This is a story of wishing that I had thought through things more. See, if I had thought it through better, I would have taken the following picture with a person in it. Then you would have been able to see the proportions for yourself. But, I didn’t.
It was one of those showers where, in order to wash your hair, you’d have to bend backwards at a ridiculous angle, praying you didn’t fall, and hope you could manage. All the while, keeping the water pressure low enough that you didn’t flood the bathroom with the haphazard spray that came out of the shower head. Adventurous, yes. Relaxing shower environment? Not so much.
Fortunately, after living in apartments for years, we are used to switching out shower heads and brought our extended-arm shower head over from the apartment so that we could take showers without breaking our backs.
Alas, the arm was the kind with a ball bearing. As in, the shower head as attached to the arm all the way into the wall. So, running out of time, having other projects to do, and not wanting to risk a leak inside the wall, we asked our good friend, the plumber to take a look at it for us.
And now we have a shower for normal-sized people! (Though again, you can’t really tell, since I didn’t have a person next to the shower to show the height. You’ll just have to visit to see it for yourself.)
