Welcome to for the first day of work in our bathroom makeover day-by-day case study! This is the damage after day 1!  Great work!  The skip arrived right on time for shifting out some of the rubble before knock-off time! bathroom renovation case study - strip-out - day 1 This stage is important.  It’s much more than just swinging around a block-buster!  The above photo doesn’t show it, but the ceiling plasterboard has been carefully left intact, whilst removing the cornice, as the renovated bathroom will have beautiful floor-to-ceiling tiles so the cornice will have to be refitted. Also our builder is careful not to disturb existing plumbing and electrical, during the strip-out. Stay tuned for Day 2, when the toilet and bedroom cupboard room walls will come down. 7am start tomorrow.
