Plouhinec house, Bath 1

I'm going to use my blog as a place to track progress on the Plouhinec house remodel. This page will be for the ground floor new bathroom. I'll add to it as I make progress, putting the latest work at the top of the blog post.

This plan shows the final layout of the bathroom. The entrance is at the left in the angled wall. This arrangement minimizes the view into the bathroom if the door is left open. To the right of the door is the toilet with an on-demand water heater above it. Right of that is the sink, which is separated from the shower area by a glass panel. The open shower area is open to the tub. This arrangement is inspired by the traditional Japanese spa, in which it is customary to shower before soaking in the bath.

7 February, today I filled the gap around the floor with concrete.
The tub and shower will be at this end

The gap in the floor is filled

Demolition complete and cleaned up, ready for work. There is a gap between the floor and the wall, measuring about 6" wide and 4" deep. At one corner it opens to an area around 30"x30". This will need to be filled.

Here are some pictures of the space at the start of demolition in the Summer of 2013.

  1. This place was in dire need of a spit and polish. What a mess it was!

    It's going to be so organized, bright and pleasent soon.
