    Bathroom acoustics, the reverb pedal of the almost-a-singer, for that fullness of sound.

    someone has got to explain why houses in the north. for the most part, have only 1 bath, maybe bath & a half.

    but us in the south almost always have two baths and, sometimes, more.

    New homes up north, 1 bath, south, 2 : just don’t get it.

    someone somewhere just typed: “that’s because southerners are full of …….”

    but it wasn’t me!

    Most new houses were being made with at least a bathroom for every bedroom and a powder room. They were getting priced out of the market, now our area is back to 10 years ago in values. Also, more bathrooms= more housework…

    Newer homes = more bathrooms.

    South(east) = more newer homes.

    I live in Warner Robins, GA. Thirty years ago Mom’s new house was way out at the edge of town, at the city limits. Now she’s in the middle of the city. And it’s a HUGE city The growth of new homes here is mind boggling.

    In my 48 yrs of living on this planet, I have determined that 1 1/2 baths are essential anytime you have more than one person living in the residence. 2 full baths would be heaven.

    Where I lived there where mostly just one bathroom. Three bedrooms and one bathroom. Where my mom lives my dad has been gone close to 11 years I used to call out west now its more downtown since homes and business more homes have multiplied. Don’t even get me started where wash/dryer should be and not in basement either.

    The rest of the world is way ahead of America (and considers itself more civilized) because they never put the toilet in the same room as the bathtub. You could have a “1 bathroom” home and still accommodate people’s urgencies, including getting out of the house in the morning. It even gives you a place to sing where others won’t be hopping from foot to foot outside.

    More recently, Europe and other modern countries have followed America’s lead … from multiple unified bathrooms to oversize supermarkets to expressways replacing railroads. Regrettable, I’d say.

    Here in the northeast, cities are still cramped, and multi-bathroom houses or apts (where single-bath ones used to be) are too expensive for most folks. But if you go to the fringes of the suburbs, even inexpensive housing will have 2 bathrooms if it’s less than 25-50 years old.
