At Long Last

 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 







 
So, at long last, the bathroom is done! My son took on this project for a school project, and although we got in trades to do the serious stuff, he worked really hard. Ripping out the old bathroom was a massive task, along with painting, grouting and general labouring; he did a fantastic job.
 
Not to mention his mum being a fairly fussy client with a strict design brief! And probably because of my design brief, we're still yet to resolve the mirror and towel rails, but they will come. Along with the shower door - that cant be hung until tomorrow to allow the fixed panel time to cure and strengthen.
 
But I can report the gorgeous bath tub has been used, more than once. And, that I cannot stop stroking the concrete walls. Love, love, love them.
 
In the money pit that The Splendour is, it's so nice to walk past a room that is d.o.n.e. Most other rooms are still in that "signs of promise" phase.
 
Well, onto the next. Slowly but surely. And you can put money on there being more concrete!

Very cool, very impressive, very talented son. LUUUUrve the Graf bath. Did you get it commissioned Jules, we are about to get a graf canvas worked out with a local artist wondering who you used.
