Rub a dub dub...


This is the Cambridge Bath that we have just ordered from the very helpful http://www.thebathstore.co.uk/ for the killer price of 400euro! This is of course without the taps. You have a choice of two types of feet, same style but either black cast iron or paintable resin. We took the resin partially because we couldn't agree on which colour we liked, Koen prefered black, I prefered white or silver. Maybe one of each? The bath itself is a sandwich of acrylic and steel plate and weighs less than a cast iron tub but about three times as much as a modern bath. It's been delivered to my lovely Nan's in the UK on 22/7 and we will be bringing it back with us when we come back from the UK on the 2/8. How? On the roof rack of course! With the Seafrance ferry service between Calais and Dover. Pics will follow assuming we get it back safely, we will be taking lots and lots of blankets, sheets, ropes and loading straps. It sure will be a sight to behold!

How nice! I have always wanted a claw foot tub! How heavy are they? Good Luck in getting it home!
