Goring Bathroom

I’ve spent the last 2 weeks on a bathroom in Goring. This was the bathroom when I arrived:


First I gutted the bathroom and started installing lighting wiring:

The Waste Pipe

As you can see, there was a waste pipe that ran through the middle of the house, down into the downstairs toilet.

This had to be removed, bagged and disposed of.

Meanwhile, I installed and cemented in a new waste pipe on the outside of the building:

Overboarding and Plastering

First I plastered the ceiling:

Next, I overboarded the walls:

I then plastered the walls:

Pipe work

I installed a new toilet waste pipe that ran from the left of the room underneath the floorboards so it was all hidden from view.

The floor

Once the plaster was dry and a mist coat had been applied, I boarded the floor and started tiling the floor:

I installed all the pipe work behind the walls and fitted the taps and bath.


The bath and vanity unit was then installed. I also started tiling around the bath and installed the shower unit:

Next I started grouting the floor and installed the sink and vanity tap:

Finishing touches

To finish up I installed a window ledge, installed the skirting, installed the shower screen and added the toilet roll holder.
