Besides the big box stores, gimme a few good places for bathroom stuff (toilets, showers/tubs, shower doors, etc.). Places with a decent selection. Srsly, like now. Preferably in the SoPa/Myer's Park/Dilwo areas...

I always go to a Hampton Inn when I have to take a dump away from the home court. But that's just me.

Why do you need a fancy toilet anyway? A Home Depot crapper is as good as a crapper from some specialty place.

Ripping out everything and redoing it. Like to get my hands dirty every once in a while.

So like if you like to tile, and have a good back, I'll let you help me.

Meh, not so much. A lot of the Lowe's and Home Depot products are manufactured with sub-par quality materials. They look the same on the outside, but the innards are usually el-cheapo. That's why they can beat my prices on a lot of plumbing fixtures.

If you want fixtures that will last as long as the house, buy from a reputable plumbing supply.

If you want fixtures that will last as long as you do in the sack, buy from a big-box store like Home Depot.

Got any recommendations in the Charlotte area? Bossman wants one of those glass doors for the tub that's sort of a half wall/doesn't go all the way across if you know what I'm getting at, but she also wants some sort of Asian arty look to it. Stupid art hippies...

When you get done practicing on your bathroom and learning from your mistakes, give me a call and you can come remodel my master bathroom. That is one thing that I am weary of taking on. There is too much that go wrong when you are not sure what you are doing and dealing with a bathroom on the second floor. Escaping water likes to travel downhill.

Stupid gravity.

Well, I've done an upstairs bathroom before with my Pops. That was much more than this one will/is. And yeah, plumbing has always been the one thing I get apprehensive about.
