    Hi all, I'm buying a house with a guest bathroom on the first floor. The bathroom is a bit small (1.84mx2.38m), and currently has a bath and a shower cube in it which feels a bit crowded (pls see floor plan attached). I'm thinking about removing the shower cube, but not sure what's going to happen with all the plumbing left in that space. Anyone's got any suggestion please? Thanks!

    Any pipes can be cut back and capped off.

    Try not to leave any dead legs, i.e cut back as far as you can to last needed junction rather than what's locally easier.

    Thanks for the advice. That means knocking open a lot of the walls though? Wonder if it would be a bit too much to tackle by myself...

    It means tracing pipes back, once cut and capped the pipes can be left in place however best practise is to remove. Most pipes will either be under floors or above ceilings.
