This project has now been going for a week, and should be finished with just under another day of work.

 

Tiling and grouting has been done, and it is now just to fit the shower, the loo, and install shower screen and those grab handles etc that we have obtained so far. Then it will a case of experimenting and putting the final touches in as the shower is used.

 

Here are a few slightly rushed  photos taken at this stage.

 

Two runs of pipe installed for the future just in case, which go through to where most of the plumbing related gubbins live beyond the other end of the bathroom.

Give it a shout - get on and grout. It's Friday.

Stay out and let it set

If anyone has any bright ideas, I need to have a set of hooks about a foot below these. Is there any product that hangs hooks off the other hooks?

We should have wrapped up by Monday afternoon, and I'll aim to do one more piece, with details and costs.

Degrees of Accessibility.

 

We do not need wheelchair access - which would have required rather heavier digging into the slab, including the ufh, than we would do now. And the waste pipes are badly positioned for doing that.

 

If push came to shove we could raise the floor 100mm in the shower / whb / loo are, and have ample space for a 1:12 ramp on the way in, or a 1:18 ramp if we reverse the door. There are also other alternatives; personally I like Ski Jumps.

 

Thanks for the read.

Why can't you screw another set of hooks further down anyway?

Unfortunately it is a panel door, and the panel is far thinner.

 

In theory I could screw something right across, but I would prefer to avoid more screw-holes.

 

The best idae I have is one of those concertina racks, but I suspect I have thrown about 3 of those away in enforced tidy-outs over the years.
