John had already stripped the bathroom, in preparation for the new saniflo, and to make sure we had a shower that worked, and had connected the saniflo when it arrived, but now he can really get on with the job.
The bathroom had been fitted by a company for the owners some years ago, but again it had been fitted so badly that it all has to be removed, this is another easy job as most of it falls out with little effort.
The shower had had a leak since being installed, which meant that the floor and the walls were damp and rotten, John had already removed most of this and had installed new wooden floorboards.
The new sink unit goes in and all the pipes are boxed in, again this is so little extra work but makes the world of difference.
John replaces the light bulb (that has been hanging off bare wires!) I had freaked every time I had a shower as I was waiting for the water to splash on the light bulb and blow me up (yes I still have an over active imagination!)
This was replaced with a bathroom light and he also moved the wires from the extractor so that they can not be seen. It was at this point that John realised that the extractor had not been fitted well either and the roof tiles had been broken, he puts them back into place, which also resolves another leak that we had found!
John has not altered the electrics in any way, he has just moved the wires.
The finishing touches are put in place, and a coat of paint added to the walls, the only thing we have not done is glossed the door frame, mainly due to not having any gloss paint, but this is an easy job for the owners to do when they next visit.
If you are having your house re wired make sure that you state you want the wires unseen otherwise you will have plastic trunking all around every wall and ceiling in your house, it is not difficult, but in this part of France, plastic trunking is the acceptable way of re wiring!
