It’s practically a member of the family now. Though maybe I wouldn’t leave a member of the family all alone in a dark garage surrounded by junk. Trevor suspects (not without grounds) that if I could get it upstairs by myself I might even have hauled it up to our bedroom so I can gaze upon it with awe at least twice a day.
Back to more earthly musings; I have been looking at creating a wet room rather than just a washroom in the cave in France. The little room built to replace the old toilet area and access from the hall is too small to fit in a large sized raised shower tray along with toilet and basin, but creating a seamless wet room in there would work .
We need this option, as the existing granite walled shower area in the second floor bathroom is fairly petite in dimensions. Fine for most ladies but Trev and the son-in-law tend to spill out a bit…
“First fix” plumbing and pipework already in; running to the other side of the wall where the bath will sit. I have been looking at tanking etc- and of course this MUST be new and fully fit for purpose; and this product http://www.wickes.co.uk/Wet-Room-Membrane-5m2/p/207303 from the Wickes chain in the UK is eco-friendly, made from recycled materials and carbon neutral.
Oh, and the bath? well she’s female (of course) and is now known as Bathsheba Everdene. What else?
