Tim and Vicki PetersonWhere:
Our son, Timothy, was born before we finished the shower, and we have a picture of him in a basket next to his dad and a bucket of grout. We're so proud of the clean, classic black-and-white look.
In all, this bath took us about 18 months, and it became a huge turning point for us. It's a confidence booster to wake up every morning and walk into a minty-fresh room and stand on tile that Tim set himself and not on mangy linoleum. It's a relief to finally have a suitable bathroom for the family; but even more, it's at the heart of what we were trying to do with this house.
Vicki was pregnant with Timothy, 2, when demolition started. Now three kids use the restored claw-foot tub, a $700 Craigslist find.
