Abstract: Remodeling the present house is, for many rural families, the answer to the need for better housing. To many families who have remodeled or are planning to remodel houses, better housing means the addition of at least one, and sometimes two, bathrooms. Increased remodeling activities, in which the number of bathroom additions is becoming significant, have resulted in a demand by families for information and guidance in the various complexities of the problem. The writer, as an extension housing specialist working with rural families, was made aware of their need for instruction and counsel in planning, constructing, and evaluating remodeled houses. The families' frequent requests for help and dissatisfactions resulting from limited information and lack of careful planning led to this awareness. Often it was the expectation of the bathroom addition that prompted the families' need for information and recommendations.
