Hi Jan,

Thanks for your kind words! As for the bath vs no bath debate - it's a tricky one. Baths are a must for families with young children but if you're more likely to sell to an older buyer who may not want a bath, then a bigger shower could be a big plus. Good luck!

I'm happy to tell you what you want to hear @JanPorter1951😁

 

I would much prefer to buy your townhouse if it had a large, luxurious shower and plenty of storage compared to a bath. I'm sure there are plenty of people who feel the same.

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @rmillard. It's fantastic to have you join us.

 

Let me mention @Darren so they are alerted to your kind feedback. Are you planning your own bathroom renovation that has exposed brickwork similar to this?

 

Please let us know if you would like to share your project or if you need any assistance with it. Our community is full of creative members who provide inspirational projects here daily and I trust you'll find plenty of inspiration and assistance from them for your own renovations.

Re: My tiny bathroom reno on an even smaller budget

Oh yes @MitchellMc I sure have a project!  I had my heart set on DIY but I've not renovated a bathroom like this before!  I would love to, but not sure if I'm going to cause myself trouble.  I have tiled walls before, and tiled floors, but never had to concrete and create the level for the shower.  I'm very open to giving anything a go and am willing to take my time. Bathroom cupboard demolished to insert a cavity shelf - probably tiledBathroom cupboard demolished to insert a cavity shelf - probably tiledWall needs to be tiled, but this render is not even and needs to be grounded somewhat. It is more raised than the plaster and thicker at the bottom.Wall needs to be tiled, but this render is not even and needs to be grounded somewhat.

@Darren 

I appreciate your ingenuity and creative problem solving - and honouring of the old paint tin 😊. Thank you for such a detailed description of the renovation process, complete with what you learned about the better and safer ways to do the work.
