2010-Feb-13 - Wooroloo - Internal Cladding # 12
I told Ross next door, a few months ago, that it would probably take me 3 months to line the inside of the garage / laundry.

He didn't believe me - said it would be much quicker than that.

Well here we are at week 12, and I still have two walls to go in the bathroom.

Today, first off, I insulated the last small section of wall between the laundry and garage area.

The area of cement sheeting was quite small and I easily managed it on my own.

Then a bit of trim around the door and a bit more fastening of the work done last week.

Now the entire laundry area is internally lined.

Next I needed to "mock up" the entire bathroom area.

This is so Linda and I can walk around in it and get a good feel for the layout and its consequences.

I obtained a second hand shower cubicle from Vinsans for a very reasonable price - $150 and I was itching to see how it would look.

I used some floorboards to represent the additional height that will be added to the floor by screeding, some bricks to represent the hobb and then temporarily erected it.

About a month ago I also knocked together, very quickly, 3 boxes to represent the trough, washing machine and dryer.

I clamped these to the wall to see how they worked in relation to the shower cubicle

Then I tested if the shower door could be opened without striking the washing machine.
