I have found that a lot of buyers desire a bath tub in at least one bathroom in the house. Usually people want that to be in the bathroom that guests and children use.

your wishes turned into plans

So glad you asked. I have been contemplating this as well. I have heard many good things about the solar tube, but haven't made a decision yet. It should be interesting to see the responses.

I am desperate to get some natural light in here especially going into the cold, dreary winter.
