On Saturday just passed, we started the huge job of renovation our massive bathroom.
I thought you might like to see our progress so far.
Here is where we started…
gutting the old walls out
You will notice our Laundry is in here too
it’s that big of a space!
as with all old homes (ours was built in October, 1883),
when you start the gutting process, you always find some sort of surprise.
We did, under the lining boards!
Lots of Hessian, newspapers and hand stamped wallpaper.
I got some close ups so you could see.
The text on this is piece is wonderful
a little snippet of the hand stamped paper, ‘wall paper’.
It was made in England.
After lots of work, Mic got stuck into putting up the beadboard,
the difference was immediate.
We did however find more surprise under the old clawfoot bath
…some bad boards that Mic replaced while he was in the corner there.
look…there is the outside!
I did mention we gutted the place didn’t I?
…and here is where we left off come Sunday evening.
Two walls re lined, insulated and 4 walls with beadboard.
This weekend brings with it more work and we are hoping to have found a solution to our vanity woes
and decided what to do with the bath area.
Mic wants to build a new bath in, but of course I am having issues letting go of the clawfoot!
We still have plaster compound to go on, cornice to go up etc, etc
My wonderful, amazing Husband done so, so much work this last weekend and I am so proud of him.
…SO much to do still.
