Adapted bathroom in wood

Suspended washbasin
Suspended washbasin

Description
The bathroom is made from parts of a wooden boat. The walls are made of solid 5 mm thick untreated teak. The washbasin is suspended from the ceiling. The bathtub is made of larch wood. The toilet is somewhat elevated and is also used as a shower chair. An extra water heater guarantees that warm water is always available even if others in the house have showered.

Users comments
The current bathroom floor is slippery (linoleum). Today the user would build a floor with floor heating and small tiles.
