Real Life Reno Blog: Post #3


More work in progress in the bathroom, and I'm working on the windows today.


Flooring In Bathroom Joined & Sealed

Today we completed the lining with the villa board which is good. And we did all screw holes for the tap fittings.
The base is not in yet though because I have to do the waterproofing first, which is what we'll be doing very soon.


The Windows Have Come Up Well

This was probably the worst window in the place. But as you can see the paint is off the hinges, which means they can now open quite easily.
Also the timber is in perfect condition, which is great considering the poor state it was in before. A massive difference.

Till next week!
