Lynn and I stopped at my parents' house in Costa Mesa, the house I grew up in. My folks are completely remodeling it.

Lynn Baden in former girl's room. Current plan is to not have this be a bedroom; apparently Costa Mesa code requires that new construction (or anything with new permits) have access to the outside world from all bedrooms. We suspect that it's because the new windows are harder to break through in case of fire.

Big bathrooom. New bathtub. No tile or vanity just yet. The hole in the floor is where the commode goes.

High storage space in living room. We suspect this might be a mistake, if our folks have no upper-body strength for lifting their arms over their head...

Master bedroom, one of the new closest. And the old bathroom. They almost took it out of service too, because it's going to be replaced, but then decided they'd replace the bathroom fixtures one bathroom at a time so the workers would have a place to go.
