Small bathroom renovation.
« on: November 12, 2017, 06:36:06 AM »

My Stellenbosch flat has just one basic bathroom, consisting of toilet, basin and bath.

Am looking to remove the bath, and replace it with a simple shower cubicle - all before the end of December.

A second option would be to build a small en-suite bathroom (shower, hand-basin & toilet) leading on from the 2nd bedroom.

My problem is this: My Stellenbosch builder friend is busy with other projects currently, - is anyone local on the forum here able to assist?

How about adding shower fixings to the existing bath? I think that total removal of the bath could be a minus.

As above, mixer tap and shower rail plus a rubber mat in the bathtub and a shower curtain.  Quick and simple and it means the bath is still there should you need it or sell later

Thank you for the above comments and suggestions, All.

The bathroom window (quite large) is above the bathís taps, so shower head and taps (& plumbing) would need to run independently on the adjacent wall. A glass divider/sliding shower door would then complete the setup.

Never the less, really like the idea of an en-suite & will see if can have plans drawn up by my Architect friend Dick Crane hopefully this week.

Will probably end up doing the bath/ shower conversion first in the interests of time, though still require services of a builder/plumber.
