Last Christmas we were very generously given a set of loft ladders from Joe’s parents, after Joe and his dad started opening up the loft hatch so we could use the space for storage (read about that here).
However, we’ve finally learned that it’s just not going to be possible to have a drop down loft ladder because of where the joists are in the ceiling. So, off they went to get an exchange, and Joe came back with a door for our bathroom.
This is the door that was originally in there.
Pretty tasty eh?
I think it’s easy to see why it needed replacing…
We’re really lucky that we have Joe’s uncle Alan, who is a pro at this kind of stuff and if I’m right, I think he once did this for a living. He spent all of today trimming down our new door to fit in the bathroom frame.
And, whilst he had his tools out, he trimmed two other doors for us as well, for the two rooms we have carpet in: the lounge and our bedroom. The low doors were damaging the floor.
Here is the bathroom door, with a lock and everything! For months we were using a bucket of grout as a doorstop to stop people coming in. This really is a luxury.
Yes the lighting is poor (sorry!) and we are eventually going to paint it white, but I’ll include that later, whenever I get round to doing my finished bathroom post. It is coming I promise! 🙂
Thanks so much Alan for all of your help!
And since doors are mostly an incredibly boring topic, I’ll end on a door/bathroom related joke. Enjoy…
Philip the tub so I can take a bath.
