Two toilet household

It may seem strange to you that a person would celebrate the arrival of a second toilet, but you have not experienced our water-closet woes. Many months ago we remodeled our kids bathroom to include a somewhat kid sized toilet. This toilet is somewhat shorter so that the distance from stand to sit is much more appropriate for a 40 inch tall person. However, it is a lomg drop for a person that is 73 inches tall. Trust me, it gets to be annoying real quick.

For those that do not know, we have been in the middle of remodeling our house for the past 4 years. (don't laugh. You do all the work yourself and see how long it takes you.) I will stick to our bathroom for now though. The day we moved in, a portion of our bathroom looked like this.
One day a couple of months ago, I got the motivation to absolutely destroy this bathroom. Everyone loves demolition, so my buddy Ben came over and swung a hammer with me. We made pretty good progress.
So we worked and worked and got the new shower framed in and had the stone all in place. Then came the cabinets and we were so thrilled. Nothing, and I mean nothing, could match the excitement that was felt today when the toilet was finally set in place and the first test flush was a success! There was much rejoicing in the O'Loughlin Household. Please view, for its' first online appearance, the second O'Loughlin toilet! (I have named him Timmy, sorry if your name is Timmy)
