A long overdue update on the bathroom

I'm not going to harp on too much about this, as frankly it is getting us down. But as I mentioned in an earlier post, the tiling job wasn't super great. Here are just a few examples:

I have had to be totally brave and actually asked for all the tiles to be removed and for the builder to start again from scratch. Mental. I can't believe I asked that. We did spend ages agonising over it, wondering if maybe we are being unrealistic, and pedantic, and just plain fussy. And I felt sick when I got off the remains to be seen what happens.

I'm hoping that the whole thing will be finished by the end of February. But I have a horrible feeling I will still be posting about it in June. Hmmm.


  1. I'm so sorry...what a drag...

  2. If the tile job cost you no money whatsoever, I could see quibling about it. BUT, you paid for this, right? Not really acceptable then. You were right to ask for a redo.

  3. Oh dear as someone who has had to deal with this on a regular basis (usually for others) I feel your pain. No matter how many times it happens it doesn't get any easier. And double check that bill;)
