what is it with midwestern houses and weird basement showers?

I’d assume it’s just a natural result of cutting corners. Finishing out midwestern basements tends to be a haphazard afterthought, so I’d imagine that over the years, a lot of people have just slapped in the cheapest possible shower/sink/toilet they could possibly find, aesthetics and optimal functioning be damned. They’re kind of the construction equivalent of the half-hearted “TV Room” (i.e. gross, saggy couch leftover from 25 years ago and Budweiser signs picked up in college) that also seem to populate so many midwestern basements.
