The top floor bathroom was a real DIY mess; bright blue 70s paint was dabbed with less than what you might call care.
On top of that the previous owner’s obsession with partitions was most obvious in this room. Pieces of furniture had been laid with foot wide gaps in odd places making placement of any furniture difficult.
The placement of the main chimney through the house left us with some difficult architecture to maneuver around but it was obvious that moving the shower was going to be necessary to make better use of the space.
So it was time to demolish and redesign entirely!
Firstly it was time to remove the plumbing elements.
To make the new plumbing work we decided to pull the walls back to the studs and start again. Here’s Scott inspecting the old pipes before the new plumbing work is done.
Taking it back to the studs allowed us to easily work on the new fusebox in the corridor and here you can see the main lines for all the new wiring.
Unsuprisingly there was some water damage in the floor so time to pull back many of the boards and relay wood before the tile. This allowed us to also repair the slope in the room which was going to be a must before our geometric tile choices could be laid.
