Day Two - New Bath Suite

So, day two was the fitting of the new bath suite. The loo is in the same place as before, but the bath tub and washbasin are swapped over. I heard that they're creating a kind of shower cubicle at the head of the bath, so I'm wondering if we're going to get one of those screens as well. I kind of hope not as it will be easier to clean the bath without a screen to stretch around. We do get a super new shower though, so that's something nice too. Here's what it looks like in there after I cleaned the basin and loo, (got fed up before getting to the bath itself and I've been cleaning up vigorously after each day's work), and we put a few bits in there to use. We're still showering at mum's though. Can't get your hair clean properly and I don't feel I want to bath in a building site!

No work being done today or tomorrow as it's the weekend and even the Council are not so keen to get the work completed that they have their team working weekends! They're pleased enough that each flat is supposed to be 'in progress' for 5 weeks, but they are actually completing in only 3. Good news for us tenants. At least it's all free of charge for us, we can get a re-decoration grant for the work we have to do ourselves later too, but we don't have to do any of this heavy work ourselves. We'll see how rotten the place looks post re-wire on Monday...... They're not sinking any of the wires into the walls (except the kitchen) and so it's going to look RUBBISH! We're thinking of doing that ourselves later on as we want our place to look nice, right?

Hiya

Emma here, had a look at the blog as suggested. Wow, wallpaper stripping eh? Just a bit...

No wonder you are staying in the flat, you would end up with no bed the way those guys are going.

With all that demoing, you'd think they could sink the wiring! Well, it's going to be better soon!! Can't wait to see more progress. :D

Home redos can be fun! Saw your blog last week and wanted to say that my sis and her DH are flying over today from Canada to visit their eldest son who is living and working in your area. He is a chef at Truffles. Maria S.
