Accommodating both adults' toilets on one shelf has its advantages but the primary disadvantage would be the small size of the rooms. This is fine for the toddlers but for the adults it would mean only one cubicle, stall and washbasin for the men, and fewer cubicles and basins for the women. That would be OK to show that the facilities exist but the impact of the rooms as obviously being located in a commercial premises would be lost without the multiple fittings and cubicles. One of the reasons I bought the bookcase for the extension was that the original adults' toilets were too cramped.

The other disadvantage to an extra other room would be the cost of equiping and staffing it. I will be putting some "open" pics on later - when you see just how much is going on, and how crowded it is, I hope that you will accept that the layout has to stay as it is. And it can't be denied that the toilets are a talking point!

What about putting the ladies' and gents' loos on the same shelf with a dividing wall then you'd have a whole other shelf to play with?!!

Excellent idea, Zoe! They are usually next door to each other!

Have you got a first aid room??


LOL! Here we go! All the various amenities and activities which I haven't actually depicted (because I've NO MORE ROOM!) will be provided by power of suggestion and props. There will be a signpost to all the facilities in the camp, and you will see holidaymakers carrying things like tennis racquets and rollerskates. As for first aid, directions to the FA Room will be on the signpost, and at least one nursery nurse per shift has St John Ambulance training. If you look back to the caption for the Nursery, you will see that there is a First Aid box in the Barton sideboard in there (there was a Red Cross on the door but I took it off when I swapped some cupboards around and I've not got around to putting it back on). I wish I could have a proper room - I would have liked a hairdressers and a penny arcade, too, but, if we're to have any real home at all, I can't go any further with this!

I should have said that where the blocks of wood are, there will be a partition wall!

I guessed that, Julie, just pulling your leg!
