Bathroom renovation: new window installed (day 4)

Day 4: Saturday

Huge changes on day 4 - the room is really starting to transform.

The carpenters removed the framing for the dividing wall between the original toilet and bathroom (we hadn't removed it until then as we weren't 100% sure if the wall was structural so we waited for them to check).

They then got to work framing up the new doorway and getting rid of the old windows.

By the end of the day they had installed the new (enormous!) window and things were looking great.

At this stage we realised that we hadn't taken into account the width of the window and the architraves, and had to move the bath spout plumbing over slightly (closer to the left wall) which meant the bath was positioned closer to the wall than I would have liked.

The new window was purchased from an eBay seller for a few hundred dollars - the trick is to be flexible with the colour and size. This one was a creamy colour (unfortunately) but luckily had frosted glass.
