and yet more changes #4

The second-last room that needs tackling is Bathroom #3. It has one of those awful jacuzzi-type baths and a few shelves, so those always got used just for storage.

Baths are for drought-free areas. I limit my shower time to 60 seconds these days, and even then I feel guilty about using the water.
