Bedroom, bathroom, bedroom, bathroom... [Jul. 20th, 2013|08:40 pm]

Alternating between working on the bathroom and bedroom.

I've lost count of how many coats of paint the bathroom's had, and it still needs more. You don't have this problem with black paint.

The before picture doesn't rally show the full horror of the crumbling
textured paint on the ceiling, the shower curtain held up with string,
and the floor with a thousand holes in it from stiletto abuse.

I wonder what the floor is like under the old lino.
 Eew! That's nasty!

I'm looking forward to getting rid of the wonky, rusty radiator.

The 'after' photos will follow, as soon as there is an 'after'.

How come the bath is positioned with the tap/drain end facing the inner wall? If it was round the other way the lengthy pipe run(s) wouldn't be necessary.

I can only see the drain pipe in the photo, but as the basin and bath have their taps at opposite ends of the room, one of them must have a lot of extra pipe...

I think it makes sense that way round. The boiler is on the other side of the wall so it's a short run for the water in and it's a full wall for the shower to hang on, rather than spilling water all over the windowsill, if it was at the other end.

When I eventually replace the bath I'll be putting it back the same way. That way I can put the plumbing in the garage for a power shower.

But if you want to pop down and try and put up a convincing argument, I'll consider alternatives.
