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