What part of v_e = \sqrt{\frac{2GM}{r}} don't you understand? It's only rocket science!

And as for the permit-less work...ACK!  I know cities and permits can be a pain to deal with, but they're there for a reason!  One of my closest friends owns a house where a previous owner did a whole lot of work without a permit and the number of downright safety hazards she's discovered over the years is eye popping.  It's a bit of a miracle her house hasn't killed her yet.  I honestly think in her case she needs to put all her stuff in storage, get a long term hotel or a short term rental, then bulldoze her house and start over.

I told you guys about the live, uncapped wires next to the water pipes in our shower, right?

I'm trying to figure out why someone needs an upper level to a bathroom....and what you'd use it for.

There's a pass through window, a frosted glass door, what looks like a stone fireplace, metal hoops hanging from the ceiling & a pull curtain + half wall between the toilet & hot tub. So I'd speculate....possibly adult parties back in the 60's. I could be wrong.

I... I kinda like it.

I do too. I suppose you could turn it into a little conservatory type area.
Nothing to see here.

Wow, that house is a standing monument to the 1970s, isn't it?
My cousin's memoir of love and loneliness while raising a child with multiple disabilities will be out on Amazon soon! Know the Night, by Maria Mutch, has been called "full of hope, light, and companionship for surviving the small hours of the night."
