...and crafting a purposeful recovery

Loo Redeux

Prior to my rant about quality this past Tuesday, I had been evaluating the contents of the three buckets keep/toss/maybe.  So, let’s finish with maybe.  As mentioned, this third pile has grown a bit as both sentimentality and greed have conspired to create a more faithful restoration (yes, I may even break down and buy a vintage ‘fridge.  I will get my daughter on that).  I am considering keeping things now that I initially dismissed and most of these are coming from the loo.

The dismantling of the bathroom was the most difficult due to the plethora of pipes and fixtures wired, bolted and/or fused in place for over half a century.  It was also a bit disgusting as this was where the water damage was the worst, the mold most prolific and the mice, well, apparently they knew it was the bathroom.  It was also made difficult by the enclosure built around it, the pocket door and the vanity.  I have come to the conclusion that I really want the pocket door.  It is in great shape and all the framing and hardware I salvaged for a verbatim re-installation.  As such, I believe my best option is to duplicate the footprint of the bathroom for the sake of ease and authenticity.  This, I believe, makes salvaging the shower basin attractive.  It formed the entire aft wall of the bathroom and would obviously fit if I returned it to the original configuration.  It is also an odd size and would be difficult to replace with new.  Made of cast iron and porcelain, it is not the least fazed by time.  There are no big chips or damage but the finish is dull.  That is the only hurdle.  I had a tub “resurfaced” once in an old home and it sucked.  Within a year it started peeling off.  This issue will require more thought and I am open to suggestions. The toilet also has me thinking.  Initially I was just going to replace it with a new composting toilet which are becoming increasing popular and affordable.  Wherever Sparta ends up I will have a garden and, properly managed, “humanure” is now recognized as a perfectly acceptable soil amendment.  Also, I didn’t want to install a black water waste tank. Since I will be off grid, unless I build a septic system, there remains the question of what to do with the poop.  Composting makes great sense for a number of reasons but I am now wondering…would it be possible to use the existing commode as a composting toilet?  Since composting toilets are, by necessity “dry” I am not sure if this is possible.  More research is necessary.  

I am tossing the sink.  It is too little and has no particularly redeeming aesthetics.  The final piece to be salvaged from the bath is the original electric radiant heater.  Typical of its vintage, it has wire coils and a fan and I am sure is not very efficient, but it looks cool.  Perhaps I can just keep the face-plate and replace the guts with something with less draw.  Here are a few pics and bye for now.

This tub is definitely salvageable and probably impossible to replace
This toilet is a goner
