Bathroom progress

Well it has cracked on a fair bit since I last posted - we now have a bath!!!!!!!! I don't have up to date photo's due to being ill but I will get up there later to take some. Here's how it has progressed so far.

This is the wall behind the toilet!

The shower tray with the remainder of the tiles in it!

This is the wall that the door sits in - more on this wall in a minute.

This is what was hiding behind the shower - an old doorway. We knew shortly after we bought the house that it was bodged in places but we didn't realise quite how much until we started the bathroom. The old doorway had been patched up with bits of marine plyboard, odd bits of wood and brick and newspaper! And not only that but the two doorways (old and new) was the only thing holding the wall up - the plumber pushed on the wall and it moved which was a bit scary. You can see some pictures of the dodgy wall below.

And below is what the wall looks like from the hallway.

And this is what it looks like when it is demolished to build a brand new wall!

I'll hopefully get more up to date photographs tomorrow!

ugh what a mess :/ I'm afraid what the plumbers will find when they install the shower here, but its the council's responsibility if the wall isn't safe like it was here (and it will not surprise me if it isn't :/)

wow! what a big project you have taken on. we found similar items, newspaper, pieces of wooden crates, plastic bags, when we bought our old house. The previous owner had built on a bedroom...what fascinted me were the two bandages on the bedroom ceiling. They had been painted over and we couldnever guess what the reason was for bandages on the ceiling.
