Horrid surprises

Our bathroom is not at all well. Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised given that it’s one of the last projects Wee Stoned Mark perpetrated on our premises. There seems, briefly, to have been a lot of silliness. The good Barry is now removing it, and at the current rate of progress, by the time he’s finished, it’s all going to cost a fortune. Money well spent — Barry inspires confidence, and what’s slowing things down is replacing rotten members in window-frames and that sort of thing. Someone moving in a slow, thoughtful and considering way from window to window is in itself, long overdue. Improperly sealed bathroom floors are not something which benefit from indefinite neglect. One way or another, affording Barry is self-evidently the path of sanity.

    File under “Getting away with it”, I think.

    It could have ended up with significant damage done, and still needed the work being done now. Plus, you have the satisfaction of seeing a job well done.

    All worth doing, even in the face of possible ruin. Should you ever want to sell the house, bathrooms & kitchens, they say, matter, because they contain objects, furniture etc. which may want expensive replacdment, That said, a friend who is an estate agent says that he is astonished to find v new cookers left for the dustmen, because renovators regard everything as ancient.

    In any case, it is nice to think that the bathtub probably WON’T fall through the floor because the planks underneath it are rotten …

    That bathroom falling through the floor, now that’s a hinky thing. Especially if someone is in it!

    It didn’t, but might have, and now I think it won’t.
