I have to turn a room into a bathroom for my grandmoter in an old brownstone at least 100 years old. The room is not directly under or over another bathroom. I haven't the slightest idea where to start or what to read. Anyone who could give me some advice please do. I know absolutely nothing about plumbing but I at least want to read up on the subject before I go and talk to a contractor or plumber. I also want to see if there is any of the work that I can do myself besides the painting (smile).

Hi Nikki, there are LOTS of sites which can provide the information that you're looking for, and of course there's always the local library. I don't know what web software you're using, but if it happens to be Netscape 4.XX you can use "smart browsing" to find things faster, look in the upper right corner for "What's Related" it provides a pull down list of sites one of which is where you can request brochures on various topics. Also using your favorite search engine do a search on plumbing, remodling, etc. Maybe one of the other regulars here has a better listing than I do of plumbing websites, and will post. Anyway, good luck!
