Bathroom Refurb - Day 7

Rob arrived again this morning just after 8 and after a quick run through things and a chat we headed off out, firstly taking Eddie out for a quick run on the sports field. We dropped Eddie back off at the boat to keep Rob company (!) and then headed out to town so we were out the way.

It's actually really boring being out of the boat all day with nowhere to go and nothing to do and then with the thought of coming back in the evening and starting a mammoth clean up - it's never a great day!

Pawel headed off to work at 2:30PM and I headed back to the boat and got back on board at around 3. Rob was nearly finished up, needing to just make templates of the floor to cut our new flooring, which will be going in on Friday.

I started a bit of cleaning up when I got back, but have been at it until only around half an hour ago - exhausted now!! Cleaning dust off the blinds, the top of the cupboards, vases, tops, floors, inside cupboards....it gets everywhere!!!!

I cannot wait until this time on Friday when it's finally all finished!
For now, I don't think we will have any more work done for a little while as we simply need a break from the stress of it all - even more so with my knees at the moment and an upcoming operation.

Here's how everything is looking now....

From the galley looking in towards the bathroom with new door trims and grouting all finished:



The shelf unit that Rob has finally completed and fixed to the cupboard side: (he's also completed the boxing in on the floor today)



The shower is in!!



New Sapele window frame: (bit dark, sorry)



Excuse the mess in the pictures, I'd still not cleaned up but it's all looking a lot better now. Certain things just need a few coats of varnish to finish them all off nicely which we'll do.

There's still a few bits and pieces to be done on Friday but hopefully it won't require cleaning up like today!

Disaster for today: shower screen didn't arrive. The company or delivery company had missed off part of the address so the carrier only had the road name and not the number/business name, meaning that the carrier didn't know where to deliver to.

It better arrive tomorrow so Rob can fit on Friday!
