Who: Stephanie and Marcy Miller
Where: Berwyn, IL
Moxie Measure: It was a heart-wrenching decision for Stephanie to demo the upstairs bathroom, her daughter Marcy's safe haven. The 11-year-old is autistic and found long soaks in the tub therapeutic. Problem was, the room was in such dire need of rehab that mushrooms were sprouting through the floor. To help Marcy cope, Stephanie took her to every lumberyard and bath store so that she could pick the materials and fixtures. Expanding the space to fit a stall shower and a new soaker tub helped create a peaceful oasis the whole family—especially Marcy—now enjoys.
