We love our new bathroom, it took about 5 months from start to complete finish and was out of action for about 4 of those 5 months. The cost ended up being around $22000, a little more than we expected but still much less than quoted ($40,000+)!
The toilet is separate to the bathroom, so, no, the we did not have to go 5 months without one!
We did everything except the asbestos removal, plumbing and electricity. When I say 'we', once J arrived two months into the process I bowed out and A did the rest of the job. We did have assistance over a couple of weekends from keen parents and my sister which certainly helped move the process along.
So without further ado, here are the pictures.
Bathroom - the reality!
So there you go. Quick explanation - the original bathroom and laundry were next to each other going down the hallway and the laundry had a door to the backyard. We took out the wall between both rooms and created a European laundry in the hallway. This stopped the waste of space that was the walkway in the laundry and gave us more space to play with in the bathroom design. The bath and half the shower area is in the space that was the laundry. The wet room design worked for us as it is efficient in terms of space and means that J and any future kiddies can splash all they like without wetting the whole room!
Ok, so that's it. Thanks for reading and commenting over the past couple of years.
Be well xoxo
