Five years ago, roughly, we walled in the laundry area in the basement and had a three-quarter bathroom put in. Today, after a bike ride, I used the shower down there for the first time. I had tested it and occasionally run it to keep the trap from drying out, but this was the first actual person, soap, and shampoo shower. It was fine.
Nothing profound or deep about that… This is really more of a Facebook than a blogworthy event.
