Ok so I haven’t updated this blog for quite sometime, mainly due to the fact we haven’t been fishing since December 17th.
So what’s happened since then…. well for starters we have finally made a start on the 3rd bedroom and bathroom at home. So the plan was to take out a stupid piece of wall that did nothing in the bathroom/bedroom and straighten the rooms up. Replacing all the flooring in the rear of the house upstairs with new floorboards, as the original ones are manky.
Then the bathroom with the existing bath for midgets, and electric “cost a packet cos Catherine has two showers a day” shower would be replaced with all new bathroom suite. So we decided to go with just a shower, rather than a bath we only have a shower in.
The shower, toilet, sink was chosen and the work commenced! Here are some of the highlights, and incidents that have occurred until today.
So starting with the obligatory before picutres (there is no after as its still being worked on!)
Horrible 3rd bedroom, showing the stupid bit of room missing that sticks into bathroom for no reason! (click for larger pictures on all the photos!)
Rear of the 3rd bedroom with radiator that was hopeless!
The stunning lighting in the bathroom!
Yuk, and the stupid bit on the right is the wall that will be removed!
Can you believe someone took the sink, taps and pedestal within minutes of it being put outside our house!
The tiny bath, and I mean tiny!
State of the art power shower, I reckoned it cost me about £2 a day with Catherine having 2 showers everyday!
Ok, so I got rid of all the paint on the walls, the guy who had it plastered before never put a sacrificial coat of water downed emulsion on, so the paint just peeled off literally!
Here’s the new roof joists that we put in about 4 years or so ago.
So here you can see the new doorframe, moved back from its original space, and the wall in the room is being squared off (the rest of the victorian wall shown on the right was about to come down).
The new door frame from the little hallway in the rear! Checkout the stupid electric shower on/off switch on the left wall (all gone now!!).
More door frame shots 🙂
Ever wondered what is under the bath in a victorian bathroom! Here it is.
What no ceiling!
Open planning at its finest… !

Not very appealing as a relaxing bathroom!
We are all reduced to having to bath in the midget bath! It’s no fun at all!
