I hope you advised the authorities you had created an extra bathroom, so they could adjust your house's value accordingly
A toilet or a shower were a rarity in farmhouses where we first lived in 82.
We helped with the vendange on our first year there. Afterwards there was a meal served for all those involved, in the vast hallway of the farmhouse. Every course was chicken or egg based.
I asked for the toilet and was directed to a large mud-splattered door at the end of the hallway. At least I thought it was mud......
When I went through it I came face to face with several large cows munching hay; the spot designated as the current dunny was quite evident.
On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.
