Small Bathroom – When Richard and Terry Jeng purchased their miniature bungalow in South Arlington in 2001, they kept their garments in the loft since the cabinets in their first-floor bedroom were almost nonexistent. We’d sleep downstairs and go upstairs to prepare for work, Terry Jeng says. We frequently discussed getting a ‘real’ house, but it was not until our daughter was born in 2008 that the house felt too little. About two-thirds of the way through what was designed to be an 18- to the 20-month job, we began seeing problems with careless work, says Royal. The outdoor stain wasn’t applied correctly, as well as the interior stairs were too narrow. After we had moved in, we’d duplicated hot water failures in the master bathroom because they’d installed an undersized tankless water heater, says Royal. Among the worst problems, which sadly occurred when we had family visiting, was that sewage began coming up in a guest toilet shower. While fixing that issue, we discovered a gas line leak that was due to the first pipes installers.
