bathroom remodel

 

You’ve probably noticed it’s been a bit quiet around here the last few weeks, and that is mainly because any spare time I’ve had, I’ve spent giving myself a crash course in plumbing and other DIY using the old fashioned method of YouTube and internet articles!

Yes that’s right, the bathroom remodel I’ve been wanging on about since January is finally here. In November! 🙂

I will make no apologies for the lack of words in this post as time is short and progress has been slow these first few days. I started the job on Wednesday and managed to rip most of it out in one day, however after day 4 it doesn’t really look like much has happened since then… haha! However a lot of planning and prep work has happened, it just doesn’t look like much to the untrained eye 😉

The good news is that I’m in my 2nd “two weeks off” period so have until next Tuesday to finish the job. More pics and updates will be coming your way soon enough, hopefully next time I’ll at least have the bath in so we don’t have to nip round to our parents every time we need a shower! I had TFS Senior coming round today so with his experience and my brawn 🙂 we should get a lot done I reckon.

I’ll also compile a list of my hilarious errors and oversights for a “how not to do a bathroom makeover” post once I’ve finished, along with some basic tips I’ve learnt along the way.

Until next time here are some “before” and “during” pics for you to feast your lovely eyes on…

During… I’ve since got the power shower off and am going to build a stud wall to house the piping. I’m installing a shower pump in the airing cupboard to give us a bit more water pressure.

Before… Toilet. Do you like the colours?! Lovely isn’t it! I don’t know why we ever wanted to change!? 🙂

During… No toilet! Also check out my cool step ladder which folds up in many ways to become a work bench and more! We got it from Screwfix (love that place! Along with Toolstation of course. Death to B&Q and Homebase. Yuk!) in case anyone was interested
