Project J: the bathroom gets moving & kitchen taps arrive (with minor hiccups)

Down at Project J, things are moving, albeit sometimes behind the scenes. The lads had a bit of a mare yesterday as the combined thickness of the Topps Tiles metro tiles, plasterboard and 18mm original boiler cupboard plywood meant that the tap, valves and shower wouldn’t fit – the connections were too short. Huge man-panic on site until Marcin remembered his and the Moregeous Motto – there are no problems, only solutions 😉 I hadn’t used the Sagittarius wall mounted bath spout with valves before but like them a lot, a good combo of traditional yet contemporary.

A still smiling Voytek chopped away (a technical term) at the ply until the fittings worked, then secured them above and below. Problem solved but another day gone by…. things like this are sometimes difficult for clients to see and understand, when time goes by with little discernable difference to the eye. It can sometimes sound like excuses as well, things have gone slower because blah blah blah, but most times it’s the truth!

The TC Vitoria basin has been put into place, along with the loo, looking elegant before they’re even fitted, even when decorated with two toilet rolls….

Sam kindly dropped off the rubber flooring today and talked us through the sub-floor prep, I seriously cannot wait to see them down. It’s the first time we’ve laid rubber flooring but I know it won’t be the last!

And the Sagittarius Churchman’s kitchen monoblock tap (same range as the bathroom taps) was popped onto the Ikea Domsjo sink ready for when the worktops go on tomorrow. One broken router today meant a little hiccup but back on track tmw am with walnut a go-go, I’ve been promised. You can just see the Ikea retro range oven and microwave in the background, they look great with the Stat kitchen 🙂
