A modern en-suite fitted in a 70’s addition to a 19th century cottage.

The brief for this job was to create an en-suite shower room in a large bedroom by building a new wall and creating a separate room. One of the major issues, as can be seen from the photos is the sloping roof/wall.

The new partition wall was of standard timber and plasterboard construction, skimmed on bedroom side, clad with cement board for tiling to on en-suite side (does make for a very strong wall) Insulation fitted between skins.

The floor and shower area were covered with “Marmox” insulated cement covered board, an underfloor heating element was fitted and the whole floor screeded with a self levelling compound, prior to tiling.

Ventilation for the room was passed through a heat recovery unit, the duct is situated just in front of the shower. Shower control is via a Hansgrohe iBox mounted valve.

A wall hung WC was fitted with the cistern hidden in the newly constructed shelf area which also served to hide the sloping wall and provide some useful surface.
