A few months after we moved in one of the houses on the road went up for sale, being nosey we had a look at their room layouts and noticed that they had utilised the space on the top floor as a bathroom.  We have therefore decided to do the same and put our new boiler in there.

So, work is underway to get the room ready and things are moving quite quickly.  We probably won’t put the bathroom fittings in just yet but as soon as the boiler goes in we can start to join up the plumbing systems from both flats.

Just coming home to see the doorway had been put in was pretty exciting…

We are going to put in a new Velux window but there is an original pane of glass that must have been there to light up the loft space:

Work is currently underway to clad and insulate it and get it ready for the plumber.  A cupboard is also being made under the roof for storage:

About katerenovates

Hello and welcome to Kate Renovates - a blog about my attempts at renovation. The Husband and I have now been living in our house for four years and changes are being made slowly. It's an unloved Victorian townhouse that had been converted into two flats. Armed with a little bit of know-how and bags of enthusiasm, we have turned it back into one house and are transforming it into our home. Many of the original features remain but the flats had been rented out and so none of the rooms were in great shape. Luckily, it has a fully functioning kitchen and we recently finished the new bathroom and so things are getting more and more comfortable all the time. We're learning as we go and sharing our ups (and downs) on here as we try (fingers crossed) to bring the house back to life. I'd love to hear your thoughts on my blog or any tips you may have on our house project, so to contact me, please email
