The main problem now Stan is that they have turned to water off for most of the day while they are doing pipework, so your redneck shower wouldn't work anyway, and besides that, I'm choking for a cup of coffee.

Now THIS is more like it, doing the job correctly.

Remove ALL tiles, and plasterboard if necessary.




First fix of plumbing, heating, gas line and electrics. The main lights and extractor fan, plus the main shower pump are all wired up and running.




Now getting the walls ready for tiling.




Things are now back on track. Colours chosen, all chrome fixtures and fittings are either on site or ordered, and they are now asking me where and what I want fitting.

Once the two main drains are in, they should be starting to contour the floor so that the water drains away correctly.

It's really nice to be working on a bit of a project again.

Good on you there John

I am afraid to say this but with the current standards in the build trade when the start a job you have to get your foot on their neck and keep it there.


we once had a job done buy a long standing building firm , when i said that wall is not level the comment was " I will sort it before I get to ground level "  he was as you guessed doing the footing , twice I told him I was not happy with this , when he arrived the next day I had give the wall the order of the boot ( size 12 )

Guess what the rest of the job was done correctly




Keep your eye one them John especially before they box it it up

My aim is for a accurate part with a good finish

Nice one Marv, a bit corny, but it worked, only, don't give up your day job. :toilet_claw:

Please don't encourage him any more Dave, as you know, as soon as Marv gets a light on, even though it might only be from opening the fridge door, he starts to perform.

Stuart, as you can see, the rules have been set, and they are now towing the line and working as a team. In fact, yesterday afternoon, there were five of them crammed in there, all merrily doing their jobs. :zap:

They all seem to be happy now, and if they are happy, then so am I. :pinkelephant:

Time to get a big jug of coffee made, just in case they turn the water off again.

Really pleased you're getting stuff sorted out John, should make things a lot easier once it's all done.

All you need now is an iPad so you can continue posting while you're on the throne ...  :naughty:   :ROFL:

Shouldn't be a problem Dave, the iPad has an Olephobic Screen Coating so I expect poo won't stick either .... :LittleDevil:

Edit:    :thinking:  Am I allowed to say "poo" on the furum?  :naughty:

So the animals left yesterday, three days late, because of my keeping a good eye on them. Just the snag team to come back and finish off, a bit of gloss paint, set the timer on the extractor fan, mirror and window blind to hang, and one wall joint sealing to do.

So here are what I will call the finished product.


A little different to when you last saw it.



The power shower, absolutely great, with the pump on full, it nearly takes my skin off.



How they made the full cubicle, a stud wall.



And the way they have set the floor, the whole room could drain down into this outlet.



And the power behind the scenes, the biggest pump they could fit for this unit.



And a little closer.



The khazi in the corner.



Finally, the watering hole.



Coupled with my stairlift, these items have really transformed my life.

Just got to get the whole house decorated before Christmas. Again, I am getting someone else in to do that, so I should be able to get back to my shop soon.

All I need now is a new car to tootle about in as I can drive a lot better now I don't have the pain. That is a job for this afternoon, I'm going down to order one.

The Sportage '3', 1.7 diesel in black.

Power showers are devices designed to pump mains water at hgher than normal in order to use up the entire contents your hot water tank in the time it takes you to have your shower ;D.

John: there should be a pressure regulator switch on the pump, see if you can get the snagging team to turn it down. It will save you money on your water heating bills :ThumbsUp:.

I must say very nice.
