This is where a curio cabinet is now on the main floor, and we can move the cabinet and use a nice curtain for privacy or a temporary wall. We expect her to be unable to use the steps for 8 months to 1 year.

I hope this is the right thread for this, if not will a moderator please move it to get the most possible views by those who may know more than I.


thanks

What about a Portapoti, Just build a box the raise it off the floor to a comfortable height add a bar to the side or sides on the wall. You should get 3-5 days at least with only one person useing it before emptying it.
You could also build a temp wall and door for a little extra privacy.
