New Year, new loo

I haven't been about much for the past couple of months. I'd like to say it is because the house is progressing super fast and I'm coming in full of energy and tackling the mess superhero style.

Nope, I've been snowed under at work. Again.

But the bathroom looks like this now. Which is awesome.

It's taken far longer than we thought. The shower quad was the sticking point here. We ordered a 900mm quad from the bathroom arm of a major supermarket, checked it when it arrived - everything seemed to be fine. Cemented the tray down. All good so far... Until we try to assemble the blasted thing. Five different people tried, multiple attempts. No way was that going to slot in so it was banished to the work in progress pit for ages out of sheer frustration. The screw holes for the frame just wouldn't key together.

It was all too much hassle in the end - we gave up and bought one ebay to replace the one we ordered which I dumped on freecycle last night. Ironically it's a much better quality quadrant we've ended up with and it cost much less.

All good, all the hard stuff done...

Well, until we broke the one orginal feature.

Never ends, does it?
