Bathroom Rebuild

Completed bathroom

Meg

This bathroom renovation was part of a full house refurbishment that threw a few curve balls along the way. The task was to renovate the bathroom, create a utility cupboard with room for a washing machine and tumble drier, and knock through the end wall into the terraced garden beyond.

When the ceiling was removed it was noted that there were two areas of wet rot damage that had reduced some of the rafters to just dust and some of the ends of the battens had totally disappeared. Once the ceiling was down we noted that the rear wall was not teh external wall. previous owners had removed the front and sides of teh original chimney stack leaving just the external brickwork. Instead of dealing with the unstable brickwork, they built a block wall hiding it. Space is tight in a cottage so we removed teh inner block wall, knocked the unstable wall down and rebuilt. Once the room was made watertight we insulated all external walls, running services for wall mounted bath and basin taps, wall mounted shower controls and shower head. The walls and floors were tiled and the new basin was incorporated into a vintage dressing table.
