The next job on the bathroom list is the window in the shower problem which we've spent the last 3 weekends working on. This is what we had a choice to do:
1) Keep the window there, paint and seal the timber frame and maybe get 4 years out of it before it rots and makes all the tiles fall off - Verdict: No way we are not dodgy renovators!
Unscrewed the frame from the outside
Then jimmyed off the frame on the inside
Removed the wall vanity metal box which would have rusted if it stayed there
Checking out the 2 courses of bricks
Our Aussies houses are made super strong with double brick, one layer on the inside and one on the outside
Playing around with my mosiac tiles which will be in the shower box that we will make
When the window frame was removed we inserted a big metal support beam in its place and rendered around the frame
Made a waterproof shower box out of this piece of cement sheeting, cut out all the bits of the box to size, glued and screwed together, waterproofed and then cemented in
The hole is boarded up from the outside with a piece of wood and plastic sheeting stuck on the inside to keep the creepy crawlys out
The bathroom is now ready to be fitted out this week - the window guys are coming to fit the new window, the tiler is booked in to start his 3 day job of screeding, waterproofing and laying the tiles and the vanity is being delivered as well.
It's all happening in the bathroom this week exciting stuff!Pin It Now!
