The exposed bathroom is one of the most loved and photographed highlights of the Lodge design. I fell in love with these tiles that I got at Mission Tile West...I guess I was not alone, I keep seeing them everywhere now! I still love them though. The claw foot tub I found at a architectural salvage yard for WAY cheaper than it would have been new! And yes, I use it all the time even though it's in a window. I"m in the hills y'all, it's private up here!
