Our Bathroom Renovation 5 Weeks On

On Sunday night me and Hubby cleared out the bathroom ready for an early start the next day.  The builders & fitter’s arrived at around 8am-8.30am on the 29th January.   we couldn’t wait to see our new bathroom in a matter of weeks.

Well, we are now well into week 5 of our bathroom renovation and what a stressful few weeks it has been.  It started off so well, it was stripped out, the floor was taken up to check the pipework to reroute it to make way for the new bathroom layout.  At this point was where we had a set back on the progress.

The day started off great, we said goodbye to the old suite and they stripped it out and started removing the tiles off the walls.  The next plan was to get up the floor boards to chase the pipework and that’s where they discovered an issue.  Previous owners had taken massive chunks out of the joists that support the floor.  (Look carefully in picture 1) which then delayed the work as they had to pull up all the floorboards to support the joists.

It was a hands on productive day as we had to get the floor joists reinforced to just put some pipe work under.  Then we opted for a new floor instead of floor boards to make it cheaper and easier in the long run not to mention flat for new flooring.  The new pipework to house the sink, toilet & shower had been repositioned.  Finally the shower area had been studded

We had new spotlight put in, the electrics put in for the mirror light cabinet and for the new extractor fan.  Then a new hole was drilled for the repositoned waste pipe for toilet.

Not much work was completed as we still had to wait for the new bespoke shower screen to be delivered which was on a 2/3 weeks delivery.  The studding was taken down for the shower as we changed from a quad to a rectangle tray

We had a few weeks of no progress due to waiting for our bespoke shower screen to be made and delivered.

We had the new bathroom window fitted, it’s amazing how different just having a new window makes a room look so much better.

Right well that’s the progress so far, so once it is finished I will publish another progress post for the finally finished renovated bathroom.
