He's a stand-up guy.

Real Estate Agent with Jameson Sotheby's International Realty

I just showed a property, this past weekend.  It was a beautiful house, with lots of lovely custom features ... new kitchen, new bathrooms, third-floor master with ensuite ... Lovely.

The owner of the house is/was a finish carpenter and had installed a whole bunch of clever custom-features... including a shoe rack that slid into the wall.  I rarely put my own shoes away (they tend to clutter up the floor of my closet)... but if I had that cool wall-sliding-shoe rack... I think I would actually put the away.

This owner had a new 2-car garage with 100 amps of service, which he outfitted with workbenches and power for his carpentry business.  It was fully heated, and clearly since he spent a lot of time out there... he'd built in a urinal.  That's right, a urinal.

He's a stand-up kinda guy.

I'm with Kathy - a loss for words, Alan.  Can't you just hear the husband/wife conversation in the car after their showing.

I sold one like that a few years back . . . the urinal was clean, though. Glorious mancaves are a big deal out here and nothing surprises me!

Haha, I have seen bathrooms built into a garage and I guess some people just need that kind of convenience.

Good morning Alan. I love the pun and a urinal in the garage is different but not something I would want.
