One of Patricia’s favorite projects was a small bathroom that she did for a client who had special needs. This was a challenge because it was a typical small 5 x 10 bathroom. She had to convert the tub to a shower and build a seat. She also had to put in a handheld shower with shower controls accessible next to the seat. This was her favorite project because she was able to help someone enjoy a better quality of life, while also keeping the space aesthetically pleasing with great quality products.
