Work in progress

Old Seratone wall was removed, wall was nogged to enable pipework to be run as position of basin was changed from original position. Original tiles from the 1960s were uncovered.

Old brickwork was exposed once wall linings removed, BBB Layers Limited were employed to repoint the brickwork, add a charcoal grout and then hone wall back to a smooth finish, finally sealing finished product. Pipework run for Rinnai Infinity for gas heated water, then pipework for bath and shower and basins.

Finished brickwork with mixer piped in ready for bath.
