I live in a 70 year old southern style house with 3" thick hardwood floors on 2x10 floor joists 12" on center, 2x6 studs in interior walls, 8" studs for exterior walls and 2x10 roof framing. Very well built, I think I have more wood than most national forests, but very dated. Cast iron tub in bathroom that looks icky.
It has 8'-0" ceiling and no windows.
When remodeling everything will be new back to the bare stud walls. All new plumbing, some of it is very old and looks like original sch. 40 galvanized drain lines, so everything will be new.
Here's the basic dimensions.
I've played around with it but I can't seem to make it all fit without having it look like a homeowners remodel.
As noted the door can not be moved without great expense but if I had to I could move it 1'-0" to the right.
Now let's talk about tankless hot water heaters.
I had the electric completely remodeled a few years ago and have plenty of electric available and it is very close by. No problem getting 40 amps. I would love a tankless because it would completely free up a closet (in older houses closet space seems to be at a premium) I could use for other things.
The problem is I have heard tankless electric water heaters don't heat water as hot as many like but my thinking on that is if it isn't hot enough then it's not sized big enough. Am I right?
All we have is a single bathroom and kitchen. This is our retirement home and just two of us live here.
Getting older I really want the jacuzzi tub.
Anyone have any suggestions or thoughts?
