Bathroom undone :(

So yeah this one is what’s kept me from a nice weeks relaxing holiday with the other half.

During the driveway dig, and this year, our builder said there was a smell in the bathroom, which there was, which seemed to get worse after having a bath/shower.

So this weeks job was just to take out the bath and find out what was going on under there.

What we discovered was more than a nightmare. The sink waste pipe hadn’t been connected to the toilet, and basically there’s been human waste dripping out the hole. The underneath of the house, had 3 inch of soil water and yeah, well you get the picture.

All the joists were rotten through, and because there was so much under there, it all had to come out, the whole floor, the tiles, everything, that meant the tiles on the walls that cracked came off, and of course because it’s an old house, the plaster came off too.

So we gutted it. Top to bottom and we’re starting again.

Poor hubby hasn’t had a day off, I’ve been running about like a loon for them, and for my own stuff.

Back to work tomorrow, and I’m happy because I’ve had complaints as usual. But, it will make this next week even harder.

Sigh.
