I got a clawfoot tub for 25 dollars and a cast iron sink from the 40's for 70 dollars. They are currently sitting in the middle of my front parlor, which we only use for watching tv, so it doesn't matter to us. The thing is, I know that everything I want to do in terms of the addition and just adding plumbing up there will run up a high bill, so I thought I could scrimp on fixtures to create a bigger budget for all of that. Should I keep doing this? Does it make me a hoarder? Is this the equivalent of a future bathroom hope chest?!
