    Hi all,
    I am redoing my bathroom ( finances dictate I do it myself sadly) I have a week off (but wil be able do stuff before that week) and i will probably have about 3 days when my other half is away.
    The jobs i need to do are
    remove the existing cladding ( which the shower enclosure is attached to)
    swap out the old shower unit
    replace with a bath
    replace loo
    replace sink unit
    relocate radiator
    fit new cladding
    fit rigid core vinyl
    fit ceiling

    So my theory was

    In advance I could
    remove the cladding but leave the area around the shower intact.
    fitting some of the flooring in to order
    relocate the radiator
    replace
    remove shower
    fit cladding
    fit flooring
    fit bath
    remove loo
    fit last cladding section
    fit last flooring
    fit loo
    fit ceiling

    Not ideal but does it sound logical

    Thanks in advance

    It might be hard to get it right that way, if you're DIY'ing. You could do it but it could end up looking a little patchwork. The best way to do a full refurb is clear back to bare. Do any required first fixes, then do the walls and ceiling, floor, then go onto 2nd fix and then finishes.

    In an i deal world i would do that but then then leaves us without loo, bath, shower for quite a few days
    But it does give me the basic order.

    Obviously you put the toilet back in/work round it, so you always have a working toilet that’s what I do on jobs, 2-3 day without having a bath/shower and having to either have a strip wash or going to a relatives house, is worth it for a proper finish
