Claw foot tub...best?
I also posted this in the bathroom forum, but though ti might get more insight here....
In our budget (Ha! I wish we had a budget to work with...)bathroom remodel, I plan to have a seprate shower (tile, shared...see my other post) and a soaking tub. I have found a refurbished complete with hardware claw foot tub for $100 in a guy's garage. My husband is concerned that a claw foot will be-
1. Too heavy--both to get upstairs, and for the house to hold
2. too fiddly...they always seem to need some sort of modification to work right--but I plan to only use it for bathing
3. not what he was "thinking"
Okay, it's not exactly what I had in mind either at first....but, old iron tubs are the most comfortable and best for soaking...right? (remember our near $0 budget)
So...Have any of you removed a claw foot and replaced it with another soaking tub that you like better? I don't want any jets (too noisy to relax)
