Felixstowe Suffolk UK
I’ve mentioned in recent posts and tweets that when we moved into our apartment, our guest loo was covered floor-to-ceiling with salmon-coloured tiles. They matched the salmon sink and toilet.
We knew we wanted a second loo when we bought our place in England. After looking at many apartments with only one, we were pleased to have the second one in any colour so didn’t let the salmon bother us too much. We recently purchased a *white* sink and toilet, which are currently under the dining table in our yet-unrenovated loungeroom.
Clive ripped out the salmon tiles and the glue behind them but I forgot to take a photo of him doing it. This morning, a plumber disconnected and stripped out the old sink, toilet, and associated pipework. Later, a very skilled plasterer resurfaced the walls.
The plasterer complimented Clive on the continuous run of bright 1990’s music and asked if we were tuned to ‘Happy FM’. We were pleased with today’s progress. Small as the room is, it’s the first renovation I’ve ever been involved in that includes plumbing, ripping out fixtures, etc.
Still to go: new skirting boards, paint ceiling and walls, floor redone, new sink and toilet installed, and maybe a new window with white trim instead of impossible-to-paint metallic dark brown.
Cheers for now and more soon.
