10 days – new accessible Shower Room … no pressure!

Day 1

Day 1 – a perfectly normal shower room in a bungalow. Sadly – due to mobility issues – unsafe and unusable for the owner

Day 2 b Day 3 a

Day 2 – the challenge of loving the toilet begins with seeking out the soil pipe connection and re-designing it. Oh, and yes, a little plastering too

Day 4 a

Day 4 – careful setting out and installation of the low level shower tray and installing the pipework
