The bitter realities of adoption...
Update:

The shower was adopted.

The wallboard was put up.

Mudd & tape were carefully spread on the wallboard.

The shower floor was installed.

The shower walls were assembled to check for fit.

It was discovered that the moulded shelf on the shower wall and the tap sticking out of the wall...and attached to that all-important plumbling...were located in exactly the same place!

It was determined that Cheap Bastard had not measured for this intricacy.

Much swearing, flailing, screaming and knashing of teeth followed.

It was suggested, by Cheap Bastard, that we could just install the shower walls upside down - rendering the shelves in the shower useless - and everything would fit great.

It was suggested, by D2bH, that Cheap Bastard could install the shower walls upside down "over her dead body".

It was suggested, by Cheap Bastard, that that wasn't such a bad idea.

Much more swearing, flailing, screaming and knashing of teeth followed.

...and so we watched "The 40 Year-Old Virgin" and went to bed. That was Friday.

We are still bathing upstairs.

My guess is we will never bathe in our own bathroom again...
