Just being a jerk.
Next one I'll try your approach.

How is it any different than seeing the towel on the counter or hanging from the uppers? It's a utilitarian item in a utilitarian space.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll figure out how to incorporate this into these.

I suppose the always access is nice because it would be like the on the counter or under the upper without seeing the roll. If you have to open a cabinet to get at it, it defeats the purpose of accessible and hidden at the same time.

We'll see how this goes over if I can ever get these delivered. The driveway is steep and a mud slide right now. Going to see if the framer doing the house across the street for the same builder has a Lull onsite and if he'll run these up the drive. I'll pallet them if need be.

Rain here every afternoon.

Driveway is so steep I can't get my trailer up the drive, the tail bottoms out forward or backing in.

Driveway finish surface is not in.

Would have to wait until the driveway dried out. No way you'd keep your footing. At that time I'd rent a ruck and back up to the garage.

I do have those.

That house wouldn’t be allowed to be built here, fire department wouldn’t allow it. That land would be worthless.

It's Colorado, a lot of steep driveways.

I recall hearing they had to change the grade to meet the fire department regulations to get a COO. Does me no good right now. Other option would have been a sprinkler system.

Other option is stop writing stupid laws and regulations.

A sprinkler system or allowing it to be steeper only so many feet from the house would be a good compromise but the Nazis here don’t believe in compromise, it’s their way or the highway.
