Beach house bathroom design in Tasmania

This is the second post on our new bathroom construction and it is making good progress. Builders have just put in the corner floor to ceiling window frame. In addition to the sea I enjoy looking at our neighbours red bottle brush which I can see from my pantry every morning. I will still see it flowering again next year from the pantry window straight through the big corner bathroom window.

The heavy stone bath is carried by six men through the opening before it is closed off. It is now sitting in the adjacent bedroom so that it is accessible once the walls are closed – it would not go through an ordinary door. John’s idea, for an impractical man he had a brainwave.

The tub is now sitting in the bedroom and it will be easy to move it into the bathroom as the bedroom will have wide opening.

Glass panels arrive for the big windows. For a very small town we have some very good local suppliers.

Oh dear…the bathroom toilet arrived cracked. The plumber was not happy. More worried about telling me I think. No one panicked, we rang the supplier who said another will be on its way.

The big window is in at last.

We are now in the unglamorous phase of the addition, next post I hope we have some more aesthetically pleasing photos to post.

      Good to hear from you Lynda, it is fun and a challenge at the same time, a mini Grand Design.

      I fancy sitting in the bath looking at the view, absolute bliss it should be, in the meantime I am living in a cloud of dust!

      How weird I replied to you and it turned into an independent comment from me.
