An upgrade to an Edwardian bathroom.
This property has been in the same family since it was built. The original bathroom was fully tiled with an unusual asymmetrical cast iron bath, where the bath “panels” in effect were moulded with the bath as one, rather than the traditional cast iron bath sat on four legs.
This was another rare occasion when I tiled over the existing tiles because they were set in extremely hard mortar, like the old butchers shops you sometimes see, and trying to remove them just started destroying the brick walls.
If I had used a steel towel rail it would have just corroded away.
Section of floor had completely rotted away where the original sink was, at the end of the bath, also certain joists had to be strengthened as some previous “tradesman” had hacked away large sections to run a waste pipe??
Airing cupboard re-built and pipework replaced and tidied. Usual seized gate valves and seized valves in loft, all replaced, hadn’t been touched for years.
