What`s been keeping me so quiet

Postby Doug » Sat Jun 09, 2012 12:35 pm

The bathroom from hell :shock: :(

Started this bathroom 3 weeks ago & in total it has taken 11 days :o
It involved boarding & plastering the ceiling, plastering the walls, fitting a rad, tiling the floor & walls & fitting the suit, but at least there was a bit of woodwork.

The mirror wall unit had worktop fixed top & bottom to form a flyover for down lights, seen here wired to an extension to check they worked.

In total I had to drill 26 x 6mm holes in the porcelain wall tiles, if i never see another porcelain tile it will still be too soon :(

Looks very smart; I don't think 11 days sounds too bad for the amount of work you have had to do.

Smart, Doug, very smart. Can you please come and do mine?

Cheers Chaps.

Rog, if they do B&B at that pub you directed us to the last time we were down your way, I could be tempted to do your job.

Don`t think I`d make much profit though :? :lol:
