House has 1 1/2 baths. The main one is small (11x5) and has a stall shower and separate tub. One way or another the bathroom is going to get redone. I wouldn't have a problem using the tub as a shower and using the space the stall shower takes up to put in a big sink/vanity like the Significant Other wants, but several friends say that a separate shower is a big convenience and selling point. Apparently many people won't consider buying a house without a stall shower.
I suppose the correct answer is to do whatever we want to do. Neither of us is quite near an age where climibing over a tub wall is a big challenge. Still, I was shocked at the number of people who told me that I'd be crazy to remove a stall shower.
