Much boxing in and application of plasterboard yesterday. 

bathroom shower/bath

The bath now has a proper frame, and the gap at the end has been plugged. Looks like the missing floorboard is just going to stay missing! 

bathroom sink

Still no sink, but the wall and window frame has been covered in plaster board, and we have a tube of pink grip for decoration.

bathroom toilet

The sloping wall behind the toilet has also been plasterboarded. That must have been a bugger of a job. Fortunately we have a very tall plumber. 

bathroom boxing in

I appreciate that this will look like a very boring photo to most people, but I am rather pleased by just how neat the boxing in for the soil pipe is. That's it! All of it! We had boxing in all the way along the bottom of that wall, with a gap for the sink to go through. Crazy. Of course, that does leave that large hole in the floorboard. It'll be interesting to see what happens to that...
